There’s a range of accommodation options available at Essex uni, including places in the centre of campus, as well as quiet spots a bit further out. Full-time undergraduate students are guaranteed uni accommodation in their first year of study, as long as the application for accommodation is made before the deadline.
There are uni accommodation options on both the Colchester and Southend campuses. On the Colchester campus, all residences are within walking distance of the academic departments and campus facilities. All accommodation options there are self-catered, meaning you’ll provide all your meals yourself, using the fully-equipped kitchen facilities provided.
All the Southend campus residences are located on University Square which has all necessary amenities on its doorstep. Over 560 student rooms are situated in flats that surround the central courtyard.
In all accommodations, wifi, heating, hot water, contents insurance, electricity and cleaning fees are included in your rent payment and undergraduate rooms are usually let for the entire academic year (September to the end of June).
