Essex students develop a sense of belonging and form lifelong friendships. When it comes to 'the student experience' Essex students consistently rate us highly, we have one of the highest numbers of clubs and societies per student in the UK, and our campuses are friendly places.
Our community is diverse, and there many opportunities for students to meet others in similar or different circumstances and to access relevant support. Our student groups are just one of the ways students can connect with others who have shared university experiences such as mature students, students with children and commuters.
Safety, support and security
Our community’s health and wellbeing are at the heart of everything we do.
Our student webpages contain helpful information that we encourage all students to
read before starting at Essex. This includes guidance and advice on personal safety, health and wellbeing, money matters and much more.
