How to apply
Applications for Colchester and Southend summer vacation accommodation are now open.
Vacation accommodation offers will be sent out from the beginning of June 2020.
Some students, such as the majority of postgraduate students and a small number of undergraduate students will have a letter of allocation to mid-September. Other students will be required to vacate their accommodation at the end of the academic year in June/July and make a vacation booking if they require accommodation over the summer.
Bookings will normally be subject to a minimum charge of three days.
All bookings will received a 20% discount.
If you require a booking that is for 29 nights or more, the tariff is set at a lower rate equivalent to the term time rent. In this case the same letting conditions apply as for students who have been resident all year, in particular, notice cannot be given once the keys are collected.
If you require a booking of 28 nights or less or you are uncertain about required dates, the short-term rate applies. In this case three days notice may be given. Any booking which commences on or after Monday 17 August 2020 will be deemed a short-term booking.
Before making a booking ensure you read the Vacation Accommodation Terms and Conditions of Residence below.
Applications can be received Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm but may not be processed immediately. If you are planning on arriving over the weekend, please apply well in advance.
