University campus is on target
12:20am Saturday 26th September 2009 in Southend
THE new 11-storey student accommodation block for the University of Essex, in London Road, Southend, is well on track for its scheduled opening in September next year.
It is intended this will serve as a partial replacement for the Farringdon multi-storey car park, which is earmarked for demolition to make way for a new Southend central library and extensions to both the college and the university campus.
