All week Welcome week is the first week of the academic year and your essential introduction to university life - don't miss it!
As well as registering as an Essex student, we have a full programme of events and activities designed to help you get the best start possible to life at Essex.
We'll introduce you to your academic department, student life and the range of support available to you through the University and the Students' Union.
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 friends? 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.
