The master plan

Aerial view of Essex Knowledge Gateway Masterplan

Our illustrative master plan gives an overview of how the Knowledge Gateway might ultimately look. It will include 400,000 square feet (37,161 m2) of commercial space and a range of ancillary facilities.

Set in 43 acres of mature parkland adjoining our Colchester Campus, the Knowledge Gateway is set to become one of the prime locations for research and business in Essex. You'll gain competitive advantage through an attractive setting and exceptional working environment in new office and R & D space, and you'll have immediate access to our research and business development activities and use of a unique range of established on-campus leisure, conference, hotel, catering and retail facilities.

The Knowledge Gateway is part of our drive to create stronger connections with business. You'll benefit from ready access to our Business School, the talent and energy of our students and academic staff and our leading expertise in smart data analytics and data science. The Knowledge Gateway is likely to be of particular interest to the following sectors:

  • Software development, telecommunications and technology
  • Market research, survey design and data analysis
  • Marketing , PR and publishing
  • Legal, professional and business services
  • Health and social care
  • Assisted living
  • Social enterprise, governmental and non-governmental organisations
