A growing community

Opened in 2007 our Southend Campus is a vibrant town centre base offering courses from four of our departments.

The Forum opened in September 2013 as a joint partnership between Southend Borough Council and South Essex College. It provides modern lecture rooms, rehearsal space and high-tech medical skills labs.

Perfect location

Famous for its beach resort and pier, Southend-on-Sea stretches along seven miles of award-winning coastline, providing plenty of opportunities for a wide range of water sports and leisure activities.

Beach life

Southend-on-Sea is situated on the south Essex coast and its seven miles of award-winning coastline provides opportunities for a wide range of water sports and leisure activities. Southend is a famous beach resort and often referred to as 'London’s playground', attracting more than six million visitors per year.

Our student facilities

We have created iconic buildings which deliver exceptional facilities for our students and the local community.

  • The Gateway Building offers state-of-the-art teaching and learning environments including modern lecture rooms and studios with panoramic sea views.
  • The Forum offers a brand new lecture theatre, two floors of integrated library resources, fantastic teaching rooms and an entire floor dedicated to our students. The Learning Hub on the second floor is accessible to our students 24 hours a day. Its unrivalled study experience includes numerous study spaces for individual and group work and PCs.
  • The University Square accommodation complex has become a well-known part of Southend's urban landscape. The 561-room development includes many green and sustainable features and offers high-quality accommodation for our students.
  • The Clifftown Theatre and Studios provides extensive rehearsal and performance space in a former church for our East 15 students, which complement the superb existing facilities in The Gateway Building. Original features of the church have been maintained to offer a beautiful environment to study and perform.
  • Our active Students' Union offers a relaxing home from home experience and a wealth of advice and guidance. The team also organise a varied calendar of free sport through our Just Play programme.
