Student Homes in Greenstead, Colchester

Ever-popular with students, Greenstead is a quaint residential area situated to the west of the city centre of Colchester. With the University of Essex, a selection of quaint bars, a Tesco superstore and a wealth of luscious nature reserves nearby, it's not hard to see why this location is always in demand. As a result, Greenstead boasts a welcoming atmosphere that helps students coming from other areas in the UK to feel at home.

Talking of a good atmosphere, the Goat & Boot serves up a range of cask ales and craft ales for connoisseurs, while Naka Thai on Greenstead Road offers deliciously fresh Thai food to soak up the booze after a big night out.

Soothe the hangover and get some fresh air at Salary Brook Nature Reserve, where grassy trails and fishing ponds make for the perfect place to unwind. Gather some friends for a picnic in the evening; this nature reserve is the perfect spot to watch the sunset.

Part of what makes Greenstead so popular is that it's perfectly situated between the bustling town centre and the university campus. Hop on a 62 bus, and you'll be in the city centre in 15 minutes, or ride it south down Elmstead Road to get to campus in the same amount of time. In a hurry? Catch a train from Hythe station and get off in the town centre in under ten minutes.
