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.

When you’re viewing a property for university, we understand the importance of asking questions and getting the feel of the space. You might feel pressure to secure student accommodation, but it pays off to be thorough when viewing show flats. We’ve put together a list of the best questions to ask when viewing student accommodation.
This year, Chinese New Year is on Saturday 10th February and it is the year of the Dragon Zodiac. The Chinese New Year date changes every year, but is always held between January 21st and February 20th, as the Chinese year follows the lunar calendar. The holiday falls on the second new moon after the winter solstice, (the winter solstice, occurs when one of the Earth's poles has its maximum tilt away from the Sun), on December 21st.
