University Accommodation is still available for both new and returning students. To secure your room please apply via our waiting list, which is now open.
Rooms will be allocated in order of priority which can be found in the Accommodation Allocation Policy. Please note, to make an application you must be a registered student.
The waiting lists will not be published online. Once we are able to start allocating rooms to those on the waiting list, a copy of the relevant waiting list will be emailed to you on a weekly basis. This will then give you the opportunity to see your position on the list.
Applications are now open.
You will need your Essex username and password to be able to apply via the waiting list. On the Accommodation website, you will need to select 2022-23 academic year drop down.
Our terms and conditions give details of the terms of your tenancy agreement. By accepting a room when it is offered you are accepting these terms and conditions and you will be entering into a legally binding contract.
