Be our guest.

Think meeting world-class academics and like-minded students. Think family. Think home. Think taster lectures. Think making your mark. Think tea and cake. Think you know open days? Think again.

Attending an Edge Hotel School Open Day at the University of Essex gives you the opportunity to meet our staff and students and find out more about our degrees in hospitality and events management.  Our Edge Hotel School Open Days are kept small and intimate - you’ll have the opportunity to ask the questions that really matter to you individually.  There’s no getting lost in the crowd here.  It’s all about hospitality, it’s what we do.  Be our guest and start your story at the University of Essex.

Special requirements

If you or your guests have any special requirements, please email us in advance so we can make sure your visit is as smooth as possible. If you're a visitor with a disability, please let a member of staff know so they can advise you on accessible routes around campus. If you would prefer a personal tour of our campus and/or accommodation, then let us know when you check in and we'll arrange for a Student Ambassador to guide you.

New contact details?

Should your contact information change, please drop us an email to let us know your new details so we can make sure you don’t miss out on any important information.

Travel and accommodation


You're welcome to arrive any time from 10am to register on the Open Day (don’t worry, we always put the kettle on earlier than this in case of any early arrivals!). The Open Day officially finishes at 4pm but if you can try to arrive for 10am - you will be able to have a tour, take part in the presentation and ask your questions over a cup of tea to be on your way home again by 12.30pm.


When you arrive head to Wivenhoe House hotel reception where a member of our team will meet you and show you where to go. We’ll only ask for your name so there’s no need to bring anything with you.
