Where you live is a very important part of your experience here at Essex. Our flats and houses are the perfect launch pad for this new and exciting chapter in your life. We have a range of accommodation options to suit different needs, preferences and budgets, all within walking distance of the academic departments and campus facilities.
Our single accommodation is arranged into self-catering flats, complete with fully equipped shared kitchens. We also have adapted rooms and shared accommodation available, so you'll be able to find the perfect place for you.
Included in your rent fee is wifi, heating, hot water, contents insurance, electricity and the cleaning of communal areas (such as kitchens) - so there's no need to argue about whose turn it is to hoover!
Rooms for undergraduates are normally let for the full academic year, from late September to the end of June, which means that even if you're away from the University during the winter and spring vacations, you don't have to remove your things from your room. Postgraduate students let rooms for 50 weeks, until mid-September.
