Introducing SU Basics: helping you save £££S on essentials

We're pleased to announce that we'll be launching SU Basics: a cheap pop-up market where you can buy all of your essentials from Monday 28th November.

The Cost of Living Crisis

Here's everything the university and SU are working on to help you through this crisis.

What is a referendum?

The latest referendum has been requested by the Women’s Officer, And the question being asked is:

Do you want The Students’ Union to work with the University to recognise the need to operate a safe transport system, after hours, on a 24 hour campus?

SU Student Pantry

We've launched the SU Student Pantry in SU Reception; a range of FREE essential products from pasta to toothpaste. Take what you need, no questions asked.

£2 Daily Hot Meals

Have you checked out the daily £2 hot meals on campus yet? From a Canteen breakfast to daily subs in Zest and vegan options in Stem & Root, there's something to tickle every taste bud!

Best Warm Study Spaces on Campus

As the days are getting colder and the nights are getting longer, you may be wondering where you can go to study on campus while keeping warm and cosy...

Cost of Living Crisis

The Cost of Living crisis is something that is impacting us all. While we can’t change the national crisis on our own, we want to do everything we can to help you get through the coming months and succeed at the University of Essex.
