we want to be the world's most student centred organisation

hello wonderful person

We're a family here at Essex. The most incredible, unconventional family with 13,000 brothers and sisters, each one of you as unique as the next. A family that revels in their differences and wears them with pride. A family that won't tell you what to think, what to wear, or even what time to get out of bed in the morning.

our tattoos

Our tattoos are what we stand for. They're our values. If the SU were a person these would be the things we believed in so much we'd get them tattooed on our body.


To measure how we're doing against our four promises we created our 'Vital Stats' - a termly review where we speak to over 900 members and get their honest opinion on how we're doing.
