Student accommodation at Colchester Campus

Starting university is about so much more than just studying - it's about making lifelong friends, growing in independence, encountering new cultures, nationalities and experiences.

We know that for some of you, moving away from home may seem like a daunting prospect; after all this might be the first time you've lived away from your family. That's why at Essex we try our hardest to help you settle in, starting by guaranteeing accommodation for all our students.

All full-time undergraduate students studying for one of our two-year degree courses are guaranteed accommodation for both the first and second year of study.

Three-year Edge Hotel School students

"Living on campus is ideal for getting to work on time and it’s really convenient being close to all the SU shops with no transport needed. It is lovely to have all the EHS students together on holidays when other Essex students might have gone home. I also love the markets the campus holds on Thursdays!"
