Your new home

Opening in summer 2015 at our Colchester Campus, our landmark new building reflects our vision for growth, excellence and sustainability. It will provide our students, staff and business partners with innovative spaces and a collaborative environment, centred around a winter garden in an Eden-style dome.

A stimulating learning environment for our students

The building will offer all of our students a stimulating learning environment. Key benefits for students include:

  • lecture theatre and seminar rooms with state-of-the-art IT facilities
  • excellent and innovative social spaces offering opportunities for informal learning and quiet study areas
  • bespoke study areas for postgraduate and research students
  • networking opportunities with visiting businesses
  • dedicated office space for student entrepreneurs

Take the next step towards your future today with our range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

A hub for business

Our new home will be a hub for local and regional businesses to network with one another, meet our students, and discuss the practical application and implications of current organisational research with our faculty. Key benefits for business include:

  • facilitation of knowledge transfer projects via access to our academics and students in an innovative building offering social spaces in which to network
  • high quality, flexible and business-friendly conference and seminar facilities within a high profile building that takes advantage of proximity to both the main University campus and the Knowledge Gateway research park
  • bespoke office space within the building for Essex Business School alumni
  • dedicated office space for student entrepreneurs
  • sponsorship and collaboration opportunities

Find out more about how working with us can benefit your business.

Facilities for the local community

We are delighted to offer the local community a landmark, high-profile building which offers local organisations, schools and interested visitors a chance to see our School in action. We'll show you around our winter garden, Eden-style dome, rainwater pond and you can experience our own micro climate that will keep it cool in summer and warm in winter.

There will be a range of conference and seminar spaces within the new building that will be available for hire to local businesses and community groups. A selection of social spaces and a café will also be available for meetings, training courses and breakout sessions.

Many of the facilities within the new building are open to bids of sponsorship as a unique way to promote your business.

The first zero carbon business school in the UK

In line with our core values of sustainability and ethical business practises, our new building will incorporate several low and zero carbon technologies, making it the first zero-carbon business school in the UK. The winter garden dome will give the building its own micro-climate that will keep it cool in summer and warm in winter.
