Ravensbourne was established in 1959, following the amalgamation of Bromley School of Art and the Department of Furniture Design of Beckenham School of Art. It was originally located at Bromley Common and Chislehurst in outer-London, moving to a purpose-built location on the Greenwich Peninsula in September 2010.The Ravensbourne building, designed by Foreign Office Architects, won a British Construction Industry Award in 2011. In spring 2021, Ravensbourne launched its Institute of Creativity and Technology, a future-focused home for experimentation, connection and collaboration. The new building is dedicated to postgraduate study and the future of design, and is an integral part of the London Design District on the Greenwich peninsula.   Collaboration with the creative industries is crucial to Ravensbourne’s commitment to giving students the specialist skills and opportunities they need to kick-start their careers.

The university also collaborates with and supports early-stage creative technology businesses as part of its incubation programme. Not only does it host start-ups in its building, the university gives these businesses full use of leading-edge technologies and media resources to help them develop and grow.
