Welcome to Essex

Welcome week is your unmissable start to university life.  As well as registering as an Essex student, we have a full programme of events and activities designed to help you get the best introduction to the University of Essex, whatever your level of study.

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.

Welcome Week continues all week from Sunday 29 September to Friday 4 October. 

4 Welcome week essentials

  1. Living in University accommodation?  Move into your new home on Arrivals Day  - Sunday 29 September.
  2. Attend your University Registration session.  Registration at Essex is a two-step process.  Please complete step one of registration online before you arrive.  Once you're at Southend campus, please attend your departmental registration session during Welcome week.
  3. Attend your departmental induction.  Your departmental induction event is a vital start to your degree at Essex, whatever your level of study.  These are taking place throughout the week.  Please ensure you attend.  Find yours on the what's on guide or your Pocket Essex diary tile.
  4. Check out all the University of Essex Students' Union events on offer including Freshers Fair on Wednesday 2 October.
