Shaping our future

Our University is embarking on an exciting period of growth.

Between now and 2025 we will be seizing opportunities to make a step-change in investment at our Colchester Campus.

These improvements will include new and refurbished teaching facilities, informal student spaces, student accommodation and new sports facilities.
