New facilities for our Colchester Campus

Latest news

Read all of the latest news about this significant project for our Colchester Campus, as we work towards the Spring 2015 opening of our new Silberrad Student Centre and library extension.

We are building an extension to our Albert Sloman Library and a new Silberrad Student Centre at our Colchester Campus. These two new buildings are at the heart of our commitment to offer excellence in education, by providing the best possible facilities to current and future Essex students. The work is expected to be completed in Spring 2015.

The Library extension will offer 388 new study spaces and a new 24/7 postgraduate reading room with 42 study spaces, and will enable us to house 1.4 million books. The Silberrad Student Centre will house a 250 study space reading room, our new Student Services Hub, our IT Helpdesk, and a state-of-the-art media centre. While building work is underway we are working hard to minimise disruption to our students.

Key features

  • More individual study spaces
  • Learning hub for group work
  • Expanded on-site library collection
  • 'One stop shop' for student services
  • New IT facilities

Watch us grow

Building works are underway and progress can now be seen via our webcam. Over the coming months you will see the new Silberrad Student Centre and Library extension start to take shape next to our lake.

Silberrad Student Centre

Our new Silberrad Student Centre will significantly enhance the student experience. From study spaces and IT facilities to the co-location of various student services, the centre will become a hub for our students.

Library extension

The extension to our Albert Sloman Library will significantly increase study space and our on-site storage capacity for our library collection. The size of our iconic library is being increased by 30%.
