University of Essex

Your new home

Our landmark building offers an innovative and unique setting for teaching business at our Colchester campus.

A beautifully-crafted environment for our students

Spread over 5500 sq m and set around a lush winter garden, the building features:

  • study pods and innovation booths for group-working
  • a light and spacious lecture theatre, with seating for 250-students
  • bespoke working space for postgraduate and research students
  • a café with adjacent sun terrace
  • Bloomberg Terminals offering direct use of Bloomberg data, information and analytics

Learn about our range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

Championing sustainable design

Ethical and sustainable business practice is at the core of our values and research and is at the heart of the building’s design:

  • the winter garden dome gives the building its own micro-climate
  • more than one tonne of carbon is saved per day through the energy efficient design and low carbon technologies
  • a rainwater pond recycles water to cool the building

Explore the work of the Essex Sustainability Institute.

An outstanding workspace for business innovation

Located opposite the Knowledge Gateway research park, the building offers a hub for local and regional businesses to engage with our students:
  • discuss knowledge transfer projects with our academics and students
  • host workshops and conferences within a high profile building at the forefront of business teaching and research
