The Maltings delivers an exceptional living experience for University of Essex students, seamlessly combining convenience and comfort. Its prime location, close to both town and university, offers the best of both worlds. With a vibrant social scene, a well-equipped gym, and highly efficient maintenance staff, staying healthy and engaged is effortless. The on-site Pizza Hut and Co-op add amazing convenience, making everyday life smooth and hassle-free. Safety and cleanliness are paramount at The Maltings, providing a secure and spotless environment. The exceptionally friendly and helpful reception staff create a welcoming atmosphere that feels like home. Despite the lively social life, the area remains quiet and peaceful, perfect for relaxation and study. Free food offerings and a cozy student lounge further elevate the living experience, fostering a strong sense of community and well-being. Considering the affordable rent compared to other accommodations, how could you say no? :)

I am a student who currently resides at the Maltings. Colchester. Maltings is the Crème de la crème of student accommodations. From the amazing facilities to the amazing people and amazing staff. The is about a 25 minute walk to campus which is perfect for us students as it saves spending money on transportation. It is also close to the centre of town where you’d find anything you need. The security is top notch, and they are always working on the block 24/7. The pricing of the rooms are quite affordable. There’s also an onsite grocery store, Gym, study room and restaurants. The staff are simply spectacular, they create the most entertaining events which gives an opportunity to socialise with other people. The social spaces are always clean and tidy, as well as the general environment. I would 100 percent recommend living here to any student, it’s perfect.

The Maltings offers everything you would want in a student accommodation. A wide variety of great quality rooms, good internet, extremely friendly staff, wonderful scenery and much more. The location is perfect as it’s only a 15-20 minute walk to campus and there are plenty of stores and restaurants within 10 minutes of the accommodation. The kitchens are very spacious and have good layout. One of the best parts about staying at the maltings is the frequent social events that are hosted every week, where we are able to meet new people and have a fun time. The staff are very helpful and friendly and often strike up a nice conversation. Would definitely recommend.

As a student residing in the Maltings accommodation, I have been thoroughly impressed with the overall experience. The facilities are modern and well-maintained, providing a comfortable and conducive environment for studying and living. The location is convenient, with easy access to transportation, shopping centers, and dining options. The staff members are friendly, professional, and always ready to assist with any queries or concerns. The security measures in place give me peace of mind, knowing that my safety is a priority. The communal areas are well-designed and offer a great space to socialize with fellow students, making it easy to build friendships and create a sense of community. Overall, I highly recommend Maltings for anyone looking for quality student accommodation.

The accommodation is a tad on the expensive side compared to other accommodation available to a student for university of Essex however for what you pay it’s definitely worth it; the kitchens and rooms are well refurbished and spacious, the gym and student space are well equipped and always bringing in new and improved equipment. Whenever anything is wrong or broken the team who operate around this accommodation are quick to fix it and help any other issues. The WiFi works everywhere and I’ve never had any issues with it. Overall I would recommend to anyone attending the university of Essex to stay here.

Staying at Maltings, was an absolute delight! From the moment I arrived, I was greeted with warmth and professionalism. The accommodations were not only impeccably clean but also stylishly designed, providing a comfortable and inviting atmosphere throughout my entire stay. The convenience of its location was unbeatable, with easy access to public transportation and a shops and restaurants within walking distance. What truly set Maltings apart, however, was the exceptional service provided by the staff. Always attentive and accommodating, they went above and beyond to ensure that my needs were met and that I felt right at home. Maltings isn't just a place to stay; it's a community where we connect, celebrate, and indulge. And let's not forget about the free food! At Maltings, residents can enjoy a variety of complimentary snacks, refreshments, and even full meals. it's hard to capture all of Maltings' brilliance in just a few words – I could go on and on about its warmth & hospitality.

My experience staying here is not less than a heavenly feel. It's like my home away from home. I can feel the warmth, security, concern, empathy, love and have all the emotional support from the team and the management. This is the very first time for me staying away from my family and I'm glad that I'm with good people. My selection of accomodation didn't disappoint me.

Choosing the Maltings as my student accommodation has been so far the best decision I have made. The accomodation has exceeded my expectations in many ways, it is at a prime location which makes travel super convenient. The rooms are spacious, modern, fully furnished. All my friends love my kitchen area and the cinema room. It has a student lounge area and gym so you dont have to pay any extra gym membership. A part from the facilities, the staff is incredibly friendly, helpful and responsive to any issues or concerns. They always go above and beyond to help you and ensure that residents feel at home. Even organising events and get togethers that makes living at the maltings more fun and enjoyable. Overall I highly recommend it considering the top notch facilities and affordability.

I've been living here for nearly a year now and rebooked my room for next year withing a couple months of living here. The staff are exceptionally friendly and always happy to help with anything. The facilities are great, the cinema room and gym being my personal favourites but I also get good use out of the student lounge and study room. The room is really nice and spacious with a modern feel and was very clean when I arrived. The 24 hour security makes me feel safe especially at night. I really enjoy the free events that they run each week including meals and snacks, cocktail making, and the occasional arts and crafts activity. Also, the 2 ducks which wander around the courtyard are lovely to see :)

I would not recommend the maltings because of the frequency of the problems that have been occurring as of late. One of the worst things I experienced while I was living there were the outdated washing machines; they desperately needed to buy brand new ones as soon as possible. There were several recent improvements to the site, for example, making sure the car park was safe from pigeons. I think the whole orange colour scheme is ugly and tacky. Something plain, like just plain white and grey, would look so much better. The pipes in the kitchen only leaked when there was water running through them. The shower is excellent, and you can make the water as hot as you want it to be. The mattress was uncomfortable, but I've had worse experiences. The value you get is good, but I think paying more to live somewhere else is a better option. It is great to have the CO-OP, Pizza Hut and Knight Pavillion restaurant so close.

The staff are so lovely and incredibly accommodating to complains or issues. There are often events and free gifts or food. The location is good as there is a long scenic walk path close, as well as being close to Tesco and the university.

I would say that The Maltings did not exceed my expectations. It is definitely good for students in terms of location, property itself and facilities that it offers, but the lack of communication between the staff and students that live here is pretty bad. One thing that definitely makes me not want to choose to live here next year is cleanliness: there is no staff to clean every week or at least once a month, every flat has to do it and as you know students weren't really taught by parents to clean so that's definitely an issue to others who live in the flat.

Beautiful flats, well furnished and modern. The location is conveniently placed near to the University of Essex, Colchester Town, Hythe Train Station, Tesco, and other student accommodations. It has a bustling student environment and the most amazing reception, security and maintenance staff. The staff have particularly gone above and beyond to provide a comforting environment during the Covid-19 pandemic, with free food, social events and smiles! Any issues such as faults with the rooms or kitchens are dealt with expeditiously. I have felt extremely safe and secure staying here (2 years) thanks to the multiple locked doors and brilliant security guards. The nearby Co-op is a wonderful convenience with lovely staff whom are very welcoming to students. Overall, it has been a pleasure to stay at The Maltings and I would 100% recommend this to any student at the University of Essex.

Great place, highly recommended for students. There are no annoying noises either during the day, so you can study well, or at night, so you can sleep well. The rooms are complete and have all the essential services and are also comfortable and nice, ideal for spending even long periods. The staff is excellent, I was 14 days in self-isolation and they made me feel welcomed and they always brought me the shopping or food delivered, because I could not leave the house. If I could I would return here every year.

I have been living at the Maltings for over two years now and I have just extended for another year. The accommodation is everything a student needs. Spacious rooms, communal areas, and walking distance from a train station, Colchester town and most importantly University of Essex. The staff are efficient and quickly sort out any problems that arise. Although, the accommodation is quite expensive within the local area, you get what you pay for and won't be disappointed.

The Maltings is a chilled spot for university students. It’s quite modern compared to other accommodations but I believe the prices could be slightly lower or at least more can be included in the rent, such as regular cleaners in the flats. The staff are very friendly are they are always willing to help solve your problems. I would give the Maltings 100% ratings but I just feel the price of rent could offer just a little bit more. Nonetheless, I would still have the Maltings as my first choice over the Hythe mills or anywhere else in Colchester.

We stayed in a Double studio and loved that it was all self contained as we were a couple, it also came with a car park which was great as we had a car. Its close enough to the uni and the walk is nice, and the co-op and pizza hut are downstairs, which was really handy. Tescos is also not to far away if you wanted a bigger shop. The staff were all lovely and were helpful whenever we had a problem. They also get to know you and remember your names which makes a difference as you feel more valued.

I really loved living at the Maltings, although its a big site it is really well run and you always feel someone is available and there for you if you need them. The gym and social spaces are nice and there is a shop on site so you dont have to go far for hangover food. Its also close to uni. I would recommend

Good location based near town with connections to and from with local bus stops and train station. The rooms and areas are always kept clean. Staff are friendly and always happy to help. Good WiFi throughout and don’t have to worry about bills as it’s included in the rent.

Very handy having shops, restaurants and a laundrette on your door step. Good connections as well with bus stops and train station nearby, close to town. The rooms are modern and clean, definitely good value.

The Maltings is a lovely place to live. The property staff are always really friendly and nice and very approachable people if you ever have an issue. They also host events and get-togethers pretty often in shared social spaces, letting us all socialise. The walls of the flat are pretty thick, so I can never hear what my flatmates are up to - even if they’re blasting music. The location is also really amazing - right downstairs is a Pizza Hut and a Co-Op, a short ten minute walk away is a Subway, Domino’s, another restaurant, barbershop, and convenience store. The local pharmacy, cleaner’s, and another convenience store are even closer. There’s also an amazon locker on the premises which comes in handy a lot! It’s right across the road from a bus stop to campus, although the walk isn’t too long. There’s also another bus stop that takes you into town so it’s perfect really. All in all a wonderful place to live.

Really good location, close to the University and close to town. Also located very close to Tesco so perfect for weekly shops. The staff are very helpful, they go out of their way for you. Definitely a recommendation.

I have lived here for 3 years and wouldn’t contemplate living anywhere else, have had a wonderful experience. Spacious room and kitchen and the staff go out of their way to help. Couldn’t recommend it enough.

Clair Watson is such a lovely woman. Whenever I go to the reception she always has a smile on her face and she’s very welcoming. She lights up the room and is also very pleasant to be around.

Pros Beautiful interior design Can’t hear flatmates at all. Surrounding area is safe and pretty Showers are always hot Small double beds Ethernet is good, wifi fine Reception is genuinely really nice Tesco, Coop and Amazon locker very useful Cons Very isolated, uni is 30 mins away. 15 mins of it is crossing a wheelchair bridge Very antisocial, full of 3rd years and postgrad. I know like 3 other people from here. Groupchat for entire accom is silent. Common room also empty Town is 45 min walk away, cab is £7-10 Lifts never work Parcels always delayed Can't open windows more than 10cm Kitchen lights on a 1h timer Maintenance never fixes serious problems The pipes are loud asf Washing machines double charge (incredibly expensive too) People barge the doors and break them No recycling Town is rough at night No cleaners Rooms use keys, not fobs like the rest of the building Parking is £300 Cig and weed smell constantly Underbed storage is a pain River occasionally stinks of rotting flesh
