The University of Essex Freedom of Information Publication Scheme

Lists and registers

We expect this to be information contained only in currently maintained lists and registers.

Asset registers

We would not expect universities to publish all details from all asset registers. We would expect some information from capital asset registers, including landholdings, to be available.

The University's risk register is an accounting document and, as such, is regularly updated. Please contact the Records Management office for information.


The University of Essex, situated in Wivenhoe Park, Colchester CO4 3SQ, The Gateway Building and University Square in Southend on Sea SS1 1LW, and Hatfields and Roding House in Loughton IG10 3RY has 170 overt CCTV cameras. They are situated in the following locations:

  • All car parks, vehicle barrier controlled access points and pedestrian walkways onto campuses.
  • All Central public areas (the squares)
  • Lifts in academic and accommodation buildings
  • All computer suites and laboratories and high value areas (Data Archive, Library, Tony Rich Teaching Centre).
  • Main entrances and reception areas, rehearsal studios and some retail areas.

Disclosure logs

Where a university produces a disclosure log indicating the information that has been provided in response to request it should be readily available. Disclosure logs are themselves recommended as good practice.
