For students seeking to live in the heart of this historic Essex town, there are plenty of homes ranging in size and style. Situated on the River Colne, this market town was actually Britain's first city, and has been internationally renowned for its history for decades. To this day, its culturally rich heritage shines through in its many museums, medieval buildings and impressive ruins.

Student homes in Colchester's city centre sit where town and country meet to make a place that is equally as good for shopping, clubbing and soaking up the culture as it is for relaxing and unwinding. Talking of which, if you choose to live here, you'll never be far from High Woods Country Park, where you can kick back and enjoy the great views of Colchester or make use of the green spaces to keep fit.

The thriving city of Colchester keeps residents entertained with a bustling town centre packed with restaurants and shopping facilities. Sample the local produce at the market stalls in the town centre or go on a spending spree at Lion Walk Shopping Centre.
