Our new academic building will provide accommodation for staff and help us provide a transformational educational experience for our students.

Our University Strategy 2019-25 maps out an exciting period of growth for our University, anticipating expansion to 20,000 students and 1,000 researchers.

Our Capital Investment Plan outlines the ways in which we will accommodate this growth, including plans for a new Academic Building on our Colchester Campus.

The proposed £26m new building will house approximately 250 staff while also helping us provide a transformational learning experience for our students through multi-functional learning spaces, collaborative working spaces, study spaces, adaptable events spaces, a common room, department receptions and a café.

Situated on the north side of Colchester Campus the project will also see the refurbishment of Rayleigh square to provide outdoor space for socialising and outdoor study and learning. See what the new building will look like on Flickr.
