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.

Colchester Campus tours

Tours run daily at 12.30pm, Monday to Friday. 

If you or any of your guests have any specific individual needs then please include details and we can tailor your visit accordingly.

Why not stay over?

Long journey? Stay at our beautiful Wivenhoe House Hotel. This luxury 4* hotel is situated on our campus and offers free parking, free wi-fi and an award-winning brasserie. Quote "UoE visitor rate" when booking to receive a discounted rate.

Southend Campus tours

Tours run every Tuesday and Thursday at our Southend Campus. You will need to book your place in advance, giving us at least 4 working days notice. However if you or any of your guests have any specific individual needs or cannot make the days, then please include details and we can tailor your visit accordingly.
