The Meadows are located near the River Colne estuary, close to the Essex Business School. It's only a ten-minute walk from all the central campus facilities.
With a real sense of its own community, The Meadows has its own shop for those last-minute essentials and common room where you can meet other students from around the world to chat, exchange experiences, and learn about new cultures.
We work with Uliving to provide student accommodation at University Quays. Your accommodation contract is with us but the management, maintenance, and cleaning services are provided by Derwent Students.
The Meadows is included within Derwent Students ANUK/Unipol National Code accreditation.
Exciting news! We are expanding our accommodation portfolio at The Meadows and work has begun on a new development consisting of 1262 rooms, a laundry, social hub, and post room.
