University Square is the University of Essex's purpose-built student accommodation, which is very close to the Southend campuses of both the University of Essex and South Essex College.
The good news is that rooms will be available for South Essex College students (see below for terms and conditions).
University Square offers 561 student rooms including 64 studio rooms. All rooms are en-suite and there are generally eight to ten students sharing a flat with full kitchen and diner facilities. Each study bedroom is networked and 24-hour high-speed internet access is provided at no extra cost.
All residents can enjoy the common room, study and relaxation space with wide screen televisions and WiFi internet access, plus launderette facilities. A dedicated accommodation team is based at University Square offering a 24-hour reception and security presence, a regular cleaning service in communal areas and an out-of-hours residents’ support team of fully-trained student volunteers.
