We understand that choosing a university is a new experience, so why not get to grips with our campus and accommodation by taking a tour with a current student?

Campus tours are available at our Open Days, or you can book one separately - we run them throughout the year.

Clearing Campus tours

If you can’t make the Clearing open day, we are also running drop-in tours of both our Colchester and Southend Campuses.

Colchester campus drop-in tours - Sunday 19 August

We have scheduled tours which will be leaving from the Ivor Crewe Lecture Hall upper foyer at the following times:

  • 11.30am
  • 12.30pm
  • 1.30pm

Tours are expected to last approximately 1 hour. Visitors should arrive slightly before the times above so they don’t miss the tour. If you are unable to make any of these dates please contact tours@essex.ac.uk - we can usually arrange individual tours. 

Southend campus drop-in tours - Thursday 16 and Friday 17 August

We have scheduled tours between 10.00am - 2.00pm on both days in Southend. This is just a tour of the campus only, if you want to speak with the department please email us.
