Finding Student Accommodation

In the heart of Colchester is University of Essex, where over 18,000 students can take their pick of 16 halls of residence.

The Colchester Castle has a long history as it dates back to Normandy times, and the castle is well kept intact and is the largest of its kind in Europe. Colchester is a good size for students as everything is in easy reach. Culver Square is where you’ll find loads of high street brands and there is a reasonable offering of nightlife venues to satisfy the student social butterflies. The Colchester Zoo is home to many rare and endangered species, including big cats, birds, primates and more. Beth Chatto’s Plant & Gardens is the best place to relax and breathe in some fresh air, with 7.5 acres of greenery surrounding you, so there are plenty of options for a free Saturday or when the parents come to visit. Find out more about Colchester
