Two campuses. Two superb learning environments. One business school.

Whether you choose to study at Essex Business School in Colchester or Southend-on-Sea, you experience cutting-edge facilities and join a collaborative, supportive and welcoming community of world-class academics and forward-thinking students. Both of our campuses are within easy reach of London and international airports.


We're built on sustainable foundations. Our Colchester home is the UK's first zero carbon business school building.

Its design reflects our commitment to responsible business practice in both our teaching and research. More than one tonne of carbon is saved per day through the building’s energy efficient design and low carbon technologies.

Our Colchester building is less than a ten minute walk to the University library and the Silberrad Student Centre. We're also close to a range of student accommodation, such as the North Towers, The Meadows, The Houses and The Quays. Buses to Colchester town centre and train station run from the stop directly behind the building, with London just over an hour away by train.





Our Southend Campus is located in the town centre, in the heart of a vibrant seaside destination. 

As well as award-winning beaches, Southend-on-Sea is home to a wealth of quirky independent boutiques, brand name stores, a fantastic selection of restaurants, bars and nightclubs and an active arts scene.

The University Square accommodation is just two minutes’ walk from Campus and Southend Central Station is close by, taking you to London in just an hour. London Southend Airport also provides flights to a host of European cities.
