Once there, please look out for ‘Applicant Day Visitor Parking’ signs. On weekdays, one of our Traffic Officers will also be hand to direct you. Once you’ve parked, follow ‘Applicant Day Check-In’ signs which will guide you to the Ivor Crewe Lecture Hall; the main venue for the Applicant Day. Please note, parking is free for all Applicant Day attendees.
If you’re arriving by train, we have three train stations in Colchester: Colchester Town, Colchester Hythe and Colchester North Station (also referred to as Colchester Main Station). Colchester North Station is the largest and has the best bus and taxi links so we recommend using this station. There is a taxi rank and bus stop at the station. The following buses will lead you to campus:
Further information about bus travel in Colchester can be found on the First Bus website and more information about travelling to our Colchester Campus can be found here.
