A message from the students campaigning for

YES

We believe students shouldn't have to run through alleyways, fields, pay for taxis or walk with keys in their fingers to get home safely. Not a single student at the University of Essex is provided with a safe way home. If we are expected to attend THEIR classes, events and clubs; the SU and University should work together to make sure we can leave afterwards without a serious risk.

 If it is unsafe to leave university, can you attend university?

A message from the students campaigning for

NO

There are no students running the "NO" campaign.
