Welcome to Essex living

At Essex there’s so much going on that you could never leave campus and still find something new to do. Step outside and you’ll find there’s much more to explore throughout the local area. From an ever-so-easy trip into London to hidden historical treasures, pretty villages and picturesque countryside, arts, culture and music festivals – we want you to throw yourself in at the deep end and soak up life.

At Essex we’re a bunch of risk-takers and opinion-makers, stereotype-breakers and world-shakers. And now it’s your turn to keep the Essex spirit alive. Whichever campus you’re based at (find your course and see), you’ll soon feel like a member of the Essex community.
