East 15 has two complimentery locations that are ideal for the study of performance, with campuses in Loughton and Southend-on-Sea.
The Loughton Campus
East 15 has three sites in Loughton: Hatfields, also home to The Corbett Theatre, Roding House and Unit Four, home of the Stage Management and Technical Theatre Department.
Each site is just a five-minute walk from the nearest London Underground station, Debden, at the eastern branch of the Central Line, only thirty minutes from central London, West End theatres and all other major tube and mainline stations ad termini including Eurostar.
The Loughton location combines both the rich cultural diversity of London while also offering an attractive and peaceful setting in which to study. Additionally East 15 often presents the students' own work in theatres and studios throughout London.
Loughton is adjacent to the famous Epping Forest, often used for leisure pursuits such as walking, running, cycling and horse riding or just for a peaceful stroll. The residential area around Loughton is very congenial, with plenty of shops, restaurants, pubs and cafés.
The Southend Campus
In September 2000, East 15 merged with the University of Essex, opening an exciting new chapter in the history of both institutions and offering more opportunities to students. Since 2007, under the directorship of Leon Rubin, more than ten million pounds have been spent on new buildings and facilities for East 15 in Loughton and Southend-on-Sea, including the Clifftown Theatre and Studios, once a Victorian gothic church in Southend which now enjoys a new lease of life, converted into studios, workshops and a state-of-the-art theatre and performance space.
