Annually, there is a colourful array of celebrations and festivals of the
cultural diversity represented across our three University campuses (Colchester,
Southend and Loughton). This includes fundraising events hosted by the African-Caribbean
society, Malaysian Night, Holi celebrations in the Spring, Ghanaian Independence Day
celebrations, Chinese New Year celebrations and several other events hosted by different
cultural societies. Students from all walks of life enjoy and contribute to these events,
proudly showcasing that our community is made up of various cultures and backgrounds.
If you are missing a taste of home, there are a number of restaurants and stores in
the town centres at Colchester, Loughton and Southend that sell food from a variety of cultures.
