Get a taste of life at Essex

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, so if you would like to learn more you can take a look at tours and videos on our Virtual Platform, where you can also view our accommodation online.

Find out what it's like to live and study at Essex from those who are already here, and talk to our staff and students 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 onto campus. For anything else, and to get your questions answered quickly, get in touch with us through live chat.
