The SU is particularly proud of its welfare services. The Advice Centre
is run by permanent staff together with fully-trained student volunteers and
provides assistance with a wide range of academic and personal matters,
including accommodation, immigration and visa renewal, loans and financial
issues. It also provides a confidential service for any students who feel
they need someone to talk to. The SU also provides a security minibus
service which enables students to get to and from the Colchester Campus in
In addition, we constantly campaign to get a better deal for students
locally and nationally.
Shops and services at our Colchester campus
- The 24-hour Campus Shop
is the largest shop on campus and sells a wide variety of fresh groceries,
ready meals, sandwiches, newspapers and magazines.
- The Union Shop sells
snack food, stationery and University merchandise.
- Go Go Global is the
first international food store on campus, stocked with the best food and
drink from around the world.
- The SU Bakery is the
campus' newest retail outlet, serving up freshly-baked breakfasts, lunches

As the Students' Union is a not-for-profit organisation, every penny you
spend in the shops, bars and venues goes straight back into providing better
services for you.
