Our campus is located right in the centre of the city, with access to shops, restaurants and nightlife and is just a 10 minute walk to Southend's famous pier and beaches.

A city centre campus

Situated behind the high street, our campus is right in the heart of this lively coastal city, utilising many of the great cultural and sporting facilities Southend has to offer. You can check out the layout of our campus on our Southend Campus map

The Forum is home to a state of the art library and learning hub, with lecture and seminar rooms.

The Gateway building is where our academic departments are based and is also the place for relaxing in our Student's Union lounge.
