Our six iconic Towers always have been and still are, the heart and soul of our Colchester Campus and a local landmark.
With everything on your doorstep, you can roll out of bed and still be on time for lectures.
A real sociable atmosphere, the Towers offers a great sense of community where you can hang out with friends and feel the buzz of people sharing a flat together.
The Towers are just a two-minute walk to the centre of campus. The North Towers, Rayleigh, Keynes, Tawney, and William Morris are located near Essex Business School and our newly refurbished South Towers, Bertrand Russell and Eddington are close to the Sports Centre and the Students' Union facilities.
Each tower is made up of flats to accommodate 14 to 16 students. The number and size of the facilities, such as rooms, showers and toilets, within each flat, can vary:
There are some smaller flats at either the top or the bottom of each tower, each accommodating between three and seven students and there are some self-contained apartments, which are usually available for our postgraduate students.
Exciting News! Work is now complete on the refurbishment of our South Towers. Refurbishment work on the North Towers will start soon, so keep checking back for updates.
