General Description

The largest accommodation area on offer here at Essex, South Courts is an ideal choice for sports enthusiasts or gym goers, as you're located right next door to our Sports Centre.

South Courts is near lots of green space to go for a jog and only a five-minute walk to the centre of campus. This accommodation is ideal if you want the perfect balance between your academic studies and social life.

Each of the eight courts are arranged into flats with shared kitchens for four to fourteen students, providing a great social hub to make friends and chat about your day. The larger flats accommodating up to fourteen students have two or three kitchens shared between the flat.

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...).
