General Description

A real sociable atmosphere, the South Towers offers a great sense of community where you can hang out with friends and feel the buzz of people sharing a flat together.

The South Towers are just a two-minute walk to the centre of campus and located near the Sports Centre and the Students' Union facilities. Each tower is made up of flats accommodating up to 16 students. The number and size of the facilities, such as rooms, showers and toilets, within each flat, can vary. The South Towers feature

*   Central shared kitchen/dining area

*   Bedrooms located on either side

*   Shared showers and toilets on each side of the flat

*   Two lifts in each building and an emergency staircase

South Towers are available for undergraduates. There are some smaller flats at the bottom and top of the South Towers, each accommodating between five and seven students, and there are some self-contained apartments.

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...).
