Our Summer School is based at the University of Essex Campus which is located in 200 acres of beautiful parkland just outside the historic centre of Colchester. It sits in a very large English park just 2 miles from Colchester. The campus is ‘a small village’ campus and there is lots of space for the students to enjoy themselves.
Colchester campus offers excellent student accommodation, shops, banks, a gallery and a theatre, cafés, sports facilities and internet ready classrooms. It also has different restaurants, where student can choose, every day, from different types of food. The campus has excellent sports facilities and offers a variety of catering options.
The student accommodation at Colchester is on campus. The students will stay in small flats which have single, en-suite bedrooms. The flats are furnished to a high standard and have small kitchens, clean facilities and free Wi-Fi. Every flat has a shared sitting area where students can talk and relax with their friends.
There are comfortable communal areas that provide a relaxing environment to socialise and meet other students.
The safety of our students is always very important. Colchester has a 24hr security presence, CCTV and secure access entry systems.
Regular buses go from the campus to Colchester city centre and train station.
Colchester is only hour 1 from London by car.
All journeys on the student excursion programme will be by private bus.
