You nailed it. You're now officially a member of Essex Students' Union. Go you.
At East 15 we're not like other Students' Unions and we don't want to be.
Here, you're not just a member of a Students' Union, you're part of a family. An unconventional family made up of students from around the world, that can achieve pretty much whatever we want together.
One of the first things you'll do when you get to East 15 is collect your heirloom.
The heirloom is your unique, customisable symbol of belonging to the SU family. It's available in handmade shapes with a choice of attachments, all presented in a box to treasure.
Individually numbered and yours for life - when you graduate, your number is passed down to a new student, and you get the chance to hand down your stories, tips and experiences.
Over time we’ll create generations of connected East 15 students that can help each other get jobs, do research and change the world.
Here’s what happened last year:
Join us on Facebook and help us build a strong and powerful community there, jut like it is in person.
Get your lunch, eat your own, relax in the chilled out space and meet your friends. This space is yours to use how you like. You really need to try one the amazing lunches that are served here daily.
There are regular events in this space, so if you fancy trying your hand at open mic night, or getting some friends together for the pub quiz then this is the place to be.
Want to play sport but not ready to commit to regular training? Are you a beginner and want to enhance your skills? Or maybe you just want to try something different and new (that’s what Uni is about after all!) - then get involved in Just Play! We offer free* drop in sports sessions throughout the week to fit around your busy schedules (*apart from some certain activities). Most of our sports sessions are tailored to give you the skills needed for your courses and to add to your CV’s.
