Our services

The information on these pages is for internal use by Essex staff and students. We have separate information about our event hosting for external companies.

Event Essex and Wivenhoe House offer conference, dining and accommodation services to internal University departments.

The advantage of using our services is that we do all the work and you can provide us with a charge code so no purchase orders or invoices are required.

We offer dedicated support with planning your event from start to finish.
