Library arrangements at our Southend Campus during summer 2013

We are now preparing to open the new and improved library at The Forum Southend-on-Sea and this will mean some changes to library arrangements at the Southend Campus this summer.

These temporary arrangements will mean that you can continue to access the resources you need while the University, South Essex College and Southend Borough Council prepare for the launch of The Forum.

Time to update your Student Access Card

If you are continuing your studies at the Southend Campus next year you need to update your Student Card to make sure you can access the new facilities at The Forum including our state-of-the-art library. The new cards will be available shortly from the Student Administration Counter on the second floor of The Gateway Building. We will send an e-mail to your University account soon to tell you when it is time to swap over your card.

The Forum Southend-on-Sea opens its doors to students on Monday 30 September 2013

This impressive new building is a partnership project between the University of Essex, South Essex College and Southend Borough Council. It provides an academic library for students at our Southend Campus and substantial additional teaching and learning facilities for our students and staff.

The second floor will be completely dedicated to the University. A 200-seat tiered lecture theatre and vibrant new gallery and cafe will also add to enhancing excellence in education at our Southend Campus.

Facilities include:

  • Second floor fully dedicated to University of Essex students
  • Vibrant new IT working spaces within the Learning Hub
  • New public and academic library
  • New research and learning facilities
  • Focal Point Gallery
  • New café
  • 200-seater lecture theatre
