When you come to East 15, you're automatically a member of the Students' Union. You're part of an unconventional family made up of students from around the world. Together, we can achieve whatever we want.
To prove that you're a part of something big, you'll get an SU Heirloom. It's individually numbered and yours for life. You'll pass down your number and share your story with future generations of Essex students.
For the entire time you're at Essex, we make your four promises
We’ll help you build relevant skills for your acting CV and even give out free fruit and water during busy show periods.
With a great bar at night hosting many events like open mic nights, and a café serving great homemade food during the day, there's plenty going on around campus. Feeling energetic? Just Play offers free sports sessions to all students with no commitments. Or why not meet like-minded people through societies for any and all interests.
You're in charge of what we stock in our venues and how we work. You can vote by dropping a token in a box, and write on our walls. You control everything we do together.
We're a mix of students from 135 different countries of every age, gender, sexuality, religion, year of study and shoe size. We'll look after you whatever.
Now it's your turn to tell us about you so we can customise your membership and show you what we've got planned for you.
