General Description

Our brand new accommodation for undergraduates. Close to Essex Business School, The Copse features stylish new rooms which complement the beautiful surroundings that form the backdrop to these flats.

It's only a 9-minute walk from all the central campus facilities. All rooms have large, four-foot wide beds (double bedding packs will fit).

Local area

At Essex there's so much going on that you could never leave campus and still find something new to do every day.

Home to 15,000 students from more than 130 countries, our Colchester Campus is the largest of our three sites, making us one of the most internationally diverse campuses on the planet - we like to think of ourselves as the world in one place.

The Campus is set within 200 acres of beautiful parkland, located two miles from the historic town centre of Colchester – England's oldest recorded town. Our Colchester Campus is also easily reached from London and Stansted Airport in under one hour. We are located in the historic, 200-acre Wivenhoe Park. The park was originally landscaped in the eighteenth century and was painted by celebrated artist John Constable.

Today, the striking landscape provides a tranquil place for all to enjoy. The campus squares are always buzzing with life. With shops, a bustling street market, a bank, restaurants, bars, a theatre, a cinema, hairdressers, a gym and even a nightclub; it's possible to survive your time at Essex without ever actually leaving campus (not something we recommend, but you get the idea...).
