The Students' Union is one of the biggest things that sets Essex apart from other unis - we promise to give you a membership that's good enough to make your non-Essex friends jealous. 

You're now part of something that runs bars, coffee shops, restaurants, a nightclub, hair salon, even a cinema, all on campus.  

You can take your pick from one of our 90 student-run societies or join as many of our Essex Blades sports clubs as you like (we're one of the only SU's in the UK to make it FREE to join sports clubs).

Essex SU is also legendary for our nights out - starting with our biggest ever line-up in Welcome Week through to our Summer Ball at the end of the year - get ready for the best times of your life.
