Get involved

From Arrivals, right through Welcome, we have loads planned including activities at the University and in the town as well as talks, workshops, arts, cultural and sports activities.  Today's activities will be displayed on the digital screens throughout campus.

Fancy a cuppa, lunch or a drink with new friends?  Your first port of call should be SU’s The Lounge in Elmer Approach.  Across Southend there are cafes, restaurants and bars, which cater to suit all tastes, some with an amazing seafront location.
