The largest accommodation area on offer here at Essex, South Courts is an ideal choice for sports enthusiasts or gym goers, as you're located right next door to our Sports Centre.
South Courts is near lots of green space to go for a jog and only a five-minute walk to the centre of campus. This accommodation is ideal if you want the perfect balance between your academic studies and social life.
Each of the eight courts, Rowhedge, Thaxted, Manningtree, Brightlingsea, Harwich, Alresford, Frinton, and Walton are arranged into flats with shared kitchens for four to fourteen students, providing a great social hub to make friends and chat about your day. The larger flats accommodating up to fourteen students have two or three kitchens shared between the flat.
South Courts accommodation were built at different stages and, therefore, can be different in appearance, as well as the size of flat. Equally, rooms may slightly vary in size and layout, depending on where they are situated in the building.
Necessary works to House 6 of Alresford Court, in South Courts on our Colchester campus, are likely to start in October 2022 and will be completed within a 12 month period of commencement.
Everything will be done to mitigate the impact on those living in South Courts.
Although there will be some noise and disruption during these works, there will be no disturbance during the evenings, weekends, or Bank Holidays.
Alternate study areas are available for you to use, if you are not able to study in your room.
We offer a number of studio flats adapted for wheelchair users. Find out more.
