When you think about starting university, you expect to be filled with excitement about what the next three or four years of your life will be like. But you may still be nervous so to help we've put together some common concerns from students and how to deal with them.
New student accommodation opening in Colchester
We’re excited to announce that Host will be the operating company behind a new student accommodation facility. The facility is being developed on Magdalen Street, Colchester, ready for completion in 2020.
The development, named 27 Magdalen Street, will consist of 252 student beds built across three four-storey blocks. There will also be a range of on-site communal facilities available for residents to enjoy.
The site itself is situated in a prime location; the town’s shopping, dining and entertainment outlets are all within walking distance. It’s also easily accessible, with the town’s train station and major bus routes all just a stone’s throw away.
Furthermore, with the University of Essex Colchester Campus just a short bus ride away, our new student accommodation will be the perfect place for students studying in the town for the 2020/2021 academic year to call home.
The opening of our Host student accommodation on Magdalen Street, makes it our first student accommodation development in Colchester; and one of several being developed across the UK for completion in 2020.

Getting serious about the environment we live in.
To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.
It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; BulliesOut, Planet Patrol and World Land Trust.Show me all news
