The Colchester Campus is the largest of the Colchester Institute sites and is just a short walk from the town centre.
There are few colleges that offer students fine dining, the chance to have their hair or nails done, or browse the on-site art gallery and attend some fantastic music concerts, all on one campus – but students at the Colchester Campus can enjoy all of this and more.
The campus enjoyed a multi-million pound re-development in 2009 focussing mainly on Music and Performing Arts, Engineering, and Construction. In September 2012 our new Higher Education Centre, a dedicated space for our degree students was opened and this later became the University Centre Colchester building. In September 2016 our £10m South Wing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) centre was launched with further new facilities for Digital Media, Science, the Construction trades alongside planning, design and engineering. The building also houses a superb library. In 2020, an additional storey was added to this building to create a state of the art teaching and training facility for Health and Social Care.
The campus also boasts a wide range of refectories, a brand new fitness gym, a bookable sports hall, a library and Learning Resources Centre and a large number of first rate classrooms with interactive presentational facilities.
