A Year of Success

In this video we're celebrating everything great that has happened at the University of Essex this year.

From fantastic new student opportunities to internationally-recognised research excellence.

From strengthening our culture of membership, with our 50th Homecoming weekend, to welcoming 5,000 new students and saying 'hello' to our new Chancellor, civil liberties campaigner Shami Chakrabarti.


Silberrad Student Centre – here we come!

Some of our teams at Colchester are moving into the Silberrad Student Centre in July. Make sure you know who's moving when.
