Students Staff

Grounds

Our Grounds team maintains Wivenhoe Park, home to our Colchester Campus, and the grounds at E15 Loughton. The Grounds Section aims to provide an attractive, clean and interesting setting with a sound, conservation-minded attitude to campus flora and fauna at the University. Maintenance is carried out to an agreed specification appropriate to the listed status of both the Colchester and Loughton Campuses.

Our responsibilities

  • Maintenance of all plants, shrubs, trees and lawns.
  • Removal litter from grounds on a daily basis.
  • Management of rabbit, goose and fish stocks to prevent disease and over population.
  • Gritting and snow clearance, clearing fallen trees, oil spillages etc.
  • Maintenance of outdoor sports facilities and pitches.
  • Assistance for Graduation and the Students' Union Summer Ball.
