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
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.
