Accommodation

We have accommodation available across both our Colchester and Southend Campuses. In Colchester we have on-campus accommodation during the university summer vacation from July to mid-September each year. In Southend we have year round accommodation.

In Colchester our accommodation consists of single en-suite bedrooms within self-contained flats as well as economy accommodation in our Towers. Our Southend accommodation is single en-suite only.

To ensure that our guests have a comfortable and relaxing stay, we provide bed linen, towels, complimentary toiletries and WiFi access in all of our Event Essex accommodation. Guests are also welcome to use our on-site fitness facilities, which include a gym and fitness studio (Colchester Only).

In Colchester, if you require accommodation outside of the university summer vacation, we are able to offer accommodation at Wivenhoe House and other local hotels.
