Welcome to the Writtle campus

Nestled in the Essex countryside, the 150-hectare campus of Writtle University College features beautiful landscaped gardens and state-of-the-art facilities, including a working farm and animal therapy centres.

It's a friendly, welcoming place and there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in student life, from social spaces on campus to the city of Chelmsford just two miles away.

Writtle University College and ARU will be merging. We’re aiming to complete the merger on 29 February 2024, when Writtle will become part of ARU.
