Why Choose Essex in 2023?

Choosing a university is never an easy task. But rest assured, if you’re thinking about joining Essex in 2023 it’s the perfect time to make the most of all the wonderful things we have to offer. 

At Essex, we’ll work with you to discover your Essex spirit, helping you develop your passions and ideas and giving you the tools to make your mark on the world. Essex students and graduates have always been committed to changing the world around them, in big and small ways, and we will empower you to do the same. Maybe this is why we're ranked in the top 40 for overall satisfaction in the National Student Survey 2022 (Broad discipline English universities).

Accommodation costs that include bills

From our iconic Towers (great if you love socialising), to our newest accommodation; the Copse (great if you love the finer things in life) we’ve got accommodation to suit a range of budgets and tastes. We also recognise the cost of living challenges that will impact our students which is why our accommodation costs include your energy bills and internet access so regardless of what happens to supplier costs, you can rest assured you’ll be fine with Essex.
