There are number of varied and exciting events taking place around all three of our campuses, including exhibitions and performances at our arts and theatre venues. Check out the events diary to find out what's coming soon.

Our work places us at the centre of the cultural and economic life of Essex. We make a contribution to the communities around our Colchester, Southend and Loughton campuses by offering educational opportunities, services, events and business support.

Our research addresses many of the challenges facing society and our academics are involved in projects directly relating to issues in Essex and the eastern region.

We make sure our students are developing the workplace skills which employers are looking for. This means businesses value the skills of our graduates.

We are a major employer and business in Essex – with a turnover of more than £155 million and a workforce of over 2,000.
