We want you to throw yourself in at the deep end, soak up life and make the most of those special Essex moments.
Home to over 13,000 students from more than 130 countries, our Colchester Campus is the largest of our three sites, making us one of the most internationally diverse campuses on the planet - we like to think of ourselves as the world in one place.
With shops, a bustling street market, restaurants, banks, a theatre and even a nightclub and a hairdressers, it's possible to survive without ever leaving campus (not something we recommend, but you get the idea...).
The campus squares are always buzzing with life. Get cakes and curries on market day, piping hot pies on the No. 64 bus, or mega milkshakes in our Happy Days diner. Or you could join in with karaoke, quizzes and a game of pool in one of our many bars, catch a film in our cinema Cine10, or dance the night away in our award-winning nightclub SubZero.
We are located in the historic, 200-acre Wivenhoe Park. The park was originally landscaped in the eighteenth century and was painted by celebrated artist John Constable. Today, the striking landscape provides a tranquil place for all to enjoy.
"The best place to chill out is without a doubt by the lake. Grab a blanket, take some suncream and a jumper (just in case!) and a good book and you'll be there for hours."
