We're running tours of our Colchester Campus at 12pm and 3pm between 15 - 23 August.

We know Clearing can be a stressful time, and you may not yet have had the chance to visit Essex. But don't worry, it's not too late, we're running Clearing Campus Tours at 12pm and 3pm from Monday 15 August to Tuesday 23 August, so you can visit the Colchester Campus and see what life at Essex could be like. 

We will be running tours of our beautiful campus, guided by our Student Ambassadors. Tours will include all the main areas of campus, including our famous Albert Sloman library and state-of-the-art sports facilities, as well as accommodation options if this is of interest to you.

We also have an Open Day on Saturday 20 August where you can also meet our academic staff, view accommodation and chat to Essex staff and students. Click here to find out more and book your place.


If you wish to view accommodation on your Clearing Campus Tour, please list your top 2 choices when booking your place. We have a wide range of accommodation available so it's likely you'll be able to see more than 2 options on the day if you wish to.
