This is my second uni and I love essex uni so much. The social life is amazing with sub zero being the on campus club being open most days of the week. Sport is for everyone and a lot of my friends are my mates because I joined a sport. The accommodation is good. Campus is huge and so many options for things to do. Multiple restaurants on campus too. My course lectures are so good ( I do nursing ) and very supportive. I’m very happy at this uni :)

Although I dont have any major faults, I do find the SU, clubs and societies bias of age. As a mature student, I do not feel as included. Moreover, as a student studying nursing, I feel the campus facilities are only open within the normal term times and done cater for nursing students who are on shift for 12-13 hours a day. It would be great to come back to our campus, where some of us live, and get something from the shop or canteen out of the usual term times.

The university has a wonderful scenery to explore or take in when studying or to hang out with friends. We also have the iconic pebbles, the campus cat. To see it roam around the campus is such a treat. Overall I found the students here to be sociable. When it comes to activities and verity of foods. It’s a little repetitive. This year it has stepped up with more options For food. The main variety of food comes when the market comes onto campus which is lovely. For the Activities on campus is a freestyle. Students have to show up onto campus, from there get to witness if theres anything on or nothing at all . The social media accounts are getting better at announcing what’s coming on, in the campus it self not much. Overall Essex has some unique quirks about it and is constantly changing to provide for the students.

I have loved every moment living at Hythe Mills and it has been one of the best decisions I have made whilst studying at the University of Essex. I couldn't recommend it enough.

Lovely, green campus with great facilities. The shops and restaurants have good variety. The award-winning SU consistently goes above and beyond in its support of the students. The student support staff are helpful and friendly.

The university campus is really nice, however, it's a disappointing place to study your PhD. The lecturers are unhelpful they just scratching each other backs, regardless of students rights; it's a trap try to avoid it. I am happy that I am not there anymore.

Everything is closely accessible so I don't have a huge problem with the facilities already available but occasionally the internet on campus did become an annoyance since some lectures rely on it for class quiz.

The maltings is a great place to live, it’s on the pricey side however the place itself and location is great and definitely worth the accommodation. The management, and staff are great. Lorraine and Debbie are my favourite, always greeting me with a huge smile, Michelle new addition to the team is amazing too :) They try their best to make you feel at home. Definitely disappointed towards how much the management staff have been bashed. Fix up smh :/

Gonna miss this university so much. Love how it has its own campus and its own club. Friendly people too. Only downside is the town isn't very huge so there isn't much to do there.

It’s a decent university. They could offer more in stores and give more choice of food on campus. The groceries are very over priced though.

Generally a pretty good uni. I personally haven’t needed it but many say the mental health support is poor, so something to consider. It’s quite communal with shops/bars/clubs on campus, big library, lots of study spaces (lovely to study by the lake in summer).

Essex Uni is pretty good. The campus looks great and has a lot of heart for sure. I'm a bit mixed on my course and it's pacing. It can be a little bit slow moving but then suddenly ramp up in pace at the more important stuff. Also booking equipment is difficult, I do BA Film and Creative Writing and you need to book filming equipment well in advance if you want it because there's not much to go around. Especially when the course keep booking it themselves to run demo workshops while we really need to be working on our projects. The Wifi 'eduroam' is pretty laughable. Overall, nice scenic place with terrific buildings, I just wish the course was better paced and that there were more resources. Also damn they need to time their union strikes better. It's always during some major assessment and it's always everybody all at once.
