From Accommodation Arrivals day, right through Welcome week, we have loads planned including activities on the University squares as well as talks, workshops, arts, cultural and sports activities.
Check out our what's on guide for more information. Plus, the University of Essex Students' Union Freshers programme has lots on, daytime and evening.
Fancy a cuppa, lunch or a drink with new friend? Across Colchester campus there are cafes, restaurants and bars, all open to students. These cater to suit all tastes and include a number of non-alcoholic venues.
