About The Meadows
The Meadows are located near the River Colne estuary, close to the Essex Business School. It's only a ten-minute walk from all the central campus facilities.
With a real sense of its own community, The Meadows has its own shop for those last-minute essentials and common room where you can meet other students from around the world to chat, exchange experiences, and learn about new cultures.
- All our premium rooms have large, four-foot wide beds (double bedding packs will fit)
- A social pavilion with a common room, shop, and launderette
- There is one self-contained apartment available in this area
- Check out what else is with your room

We are expanding our accommodation portfolio and our new development, The Pastures is well underway. It consists of 1262 rooms, a laundry, social hub, and post room.
The position of our new accommodation, is opposite the current Meadows site on North campus. Work will continue over the next year, with completion set for September 2023. We will work with contractors to mitigate any impact on our students living nearby and will provide alternate study space if required.
