The Southend-on-Sea campus of the University of Essex is conveniently located in the town centre and only a few minute walk from the train station. It is also less than a ten minute walk to the beautiful beaches that cover over seven miles of an award-winning coastline. Southend boasts the longest pier in the world stretching over 2km into the Thames estuary. Southend-on-sea is a vibrant town and the pedestrainised high street is full of lovely shops and restaurants.
The campus is modern with excellent teaching facilities, classrooms are bright and spacious with access to computer labs and innovation space. There are modern lecture theatres and communal areas for evening activities. The accommodation (affectionately called the 'lego' building by locals) offers single en-suite rooms in flats of 6-10 rooms with large communal kitchens/living space.
