We could talk about our state-of-the-art STEM Centre, our amazing Sport Arena, our unique virtual trading floor or housing the internationally renowned collection of Latin American Art, ESCALA, but we know that the importance of our facilities isn’t just about studying, they’re for socialising too.
We are proud to share our Colchester Campus with the Green Flag award-winning Wivenhoe Park. Covering 200 acres and housing over 2,800 trees the beautiful parklands are a firm favourite for our students. Settle in on a grassy knoll by the lake to study, have lunch or socialise with your friends. There are lots of other on-campus spots to study or socialise including our library, cafes, restaurants and our secret garden. If you’re looking for something more active you can visit our theatre, cinema, gym, or play on our 18-hole disc golf course. You can also take part in a sports club, join or create a society or get involved in an art project - there is just so much to get involved in on campus!
If you’re lucky enough to study a course at our sunny Southend Campus, you can enjoy award-winning beaches in one of the warmest places in the UK. Southend is also home to the longest pier in the world, its own theme park, a water sports club plus lots of other fun seaside activities. Whenever you need to take a well-deserved study break you can step out for a revitalising breath of fresh air, have a fun day out, or find a private spot to study. With seven miles of coastline to explore, you’re sure to find a part of the beach that’s just right for you.
On campus you’ll find outstanding study facilities, including learning hubs, silent study spaces and presentation points. Our Southend Campus is also proud to house a state-of-the-art library with over 150,000 books, plus our very own Dental Skills Lab for students building a career in oral health. If you need support for anything, from IT questions to employability, the Students Services Hub is available to you 24/7 every day of the year. Learn more about student life at Southend-on-Sea.
