Our campuses

No matter which campus you’re based at, you’ll feel like a member of the Essex community. We have three campuses at Colchester, Loughton and Southend. Each campus is different but offers the same world-class education.

Which campus will I be based at?

Once you have chosen the course you’re interested in studying, you can check which campus you’d be based at by looking at the location entry.

Our Loughton Campus is home to the world-famous East 15 Acting School and offers state-of-the-art studios, technical equipment and theatre space.
