About Police Registration at Colchester campus

  • Essex Police will be on campus to processing new registrations during welcome week and week 2.
  • You will need to book an appointment so make sure you know what other compulsory events you must attend and when such as, your departmental talks/events and University registration.
  • Appointments are on a first come first served basis.
  • If you book an appointment and cannot attend you must go to the location and cancel the appointment and book an alternative, if one is available.
  • Don’t worry if it’s been more than 7 days since you collected your BRP/arrived in the UK, provided you book an appointment shortly after you register for your course (and attend) it should be fine.
