When you join the University of Essex you automatically become a member of Essex SU; a community of 18,500 unique and wonderful individuals. Welcome 

We’re the unconventional family you never knew you had. The big brother or sister that knows everything that Essex has to offer.

We’re the heart of student life.

Your go-to for trusted advice & news; learnt from all the students who’ve come before you. 

We’re here to help you get a great degree, meet new friends, impact change and grow as a person; to make your experience at Essex unforgettable.

From your first day to your last exam - we’ve got your back every step of the way. 

Run by a team of seven elected Student Leaders. We’re non for profit, which means any money made in our venues is spent back on you, which we think is pretty great. 

Together we are Essex SU
