Close to campus, our historical town centre and to the Hythe train station; University Quays are perfectly located. Attend your lecture, clock in for a part-time job in town, enjoy the bars and restaurants in Colchester when your shift is over, or jump on a train to the city with your friends.
Partner that with amazing views of the River Colne, where you can enjoy a Sunday afternoon bike ride, or pop to the nearby shops for your everyday essentials - just in time to hang out in the great social spaces that form part of the Quays apartments.
Our award-winning University Quays accommodation is around a 15-20 minute walk to the centre of campus.
"I chose The Quays because of the private bathroom and the bedroom itself - it's huge, which means I have enough space to study, work and even work out, as well as bright and sunny, which is great when I have to concentrate on my studying. I also like that it's close to the University but not too much - I love walking, so having to walk a bit to campus is simply wonderful! The atmosphere is usually pretty calm and my flatmates are nice and quiet."
