If you can't visit us in person we've got a few options for you...
We don’t want you missing out on seeing what Essex has to offer, you can visit our Virtual Open Day, take tours of our campuses and accommodation or talk to our staff and students through our live chat where you can get all your burning questions answered. Because coming to university is a pretty big deal, we want to make sure you feel at home before you’ve even stepped on campus.

Home to our three university campuses, Essex is a culturally vibrant county stretching between the Eastern outskirts of London.
Our Colchester Campus is a thriving cosmopolitan community, hosting a post office, shops, a theatre, gym, bookstore, salon, library, a buffet of different cafes and restaurants and even a nightclub. We wouldn't blame you if you never set foot off campus. But it's worth it if you do. Steeped in over two thousand years of history, Colchester city and the surrounding villages have so much to offer.
Southend-on-Sea is situated along the coastline and has the longest pleasure pier in the world. With the campus positioned in the heart of a thriving city centre, when you need a break from studying you'll never be short of entertainment. You can also jet off to Europe through the local Southend Airport.
