Guide to Colchester Campus (And The Surrounding Area)

No ratings yet. Log in to rate.

We’ve got hundreds of lecture rooms, oodles of food outlets, and sports facilities with so much room for activities. There’s the NHS health centre, student support services, study spaces and exam pods. Plus the on-campus cinema, theatre, bookshop, and art gallery. Essentially what’re saying is - our campus has almost everything you can dream of (except a pool with giant pink flamingo floats – we might work on this later). We even have our own cat!

Now you’re probably wondering where you can find out more about Colchester Campus, such as opening times, where everything is located, and what is available to you. The answers are all in the campus guide which you can find here.



Colchester campus is a maze. You might do six years here and still get lost. The room numbers don’t make sense, and what’s all this about squares?

Don’t worry, the FindYourWay app is there to save you. It works like Google maps, and it can give you a virtual path to follow to your destination.

It’s a true hero!
