We have taken the decision to cancel our June Open Day, due to be held on Saturday 20 June.
The University of Essex has now agreed to adopt additional action to protect our staff, students and our wider community against the spread and impact of COVID-19. We have not had any confirmed cases of COVID-19 on our campuses. Nevertheless, as the number of cases in the UK increases, we want to take pre-emptive steps to protect members of our community from the risk of infection.
From Monday 16 March we will be implementing enhanced protection measures, which, amongst other steps include suspending all University public events and gatherings, including our schools engagement work. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
