Welcome Week 2015

Welcome Week is a great introduction to university life, but the options for how to spend time outside your studies can be bewildering.

We'll soon be launching a new "What's on at Essex" calendar of events to help you build your own Essex Experience - make it personal!.

Promoting your event on our new events calendar is easy if you're a member of Essex/SU staff or from a student club/society. Simply email whatson@essex.ac.uk with your event details.
