Welcome to Student Activities!

Whether you’re an introvert or extrovert, happy with your friendship group or desperate to meet more people, we're sure there's something at Essex for you to get involved with.

Essex Blades Sports Clubs, SU Societies, Rebel (Student Media) and VTeam are all run by committee's of students.

At the SU we have a friendly Student Activities Team ready to help you get involved. 

Stop by our 'front of house' at the SU Reception in square 3 between 11-3 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday or between 9-5 on a Wednesday and a member of the team will be there ready to help answer any questions you have. 

We also have a team of staff that work in the back office that are supporting members behind the scenes with the day to day running of their activities.

If you're a student activities exec then you've come to the right place to get the support you need to run your activities.

We have a Student Activities Staff Team made up from permanent staff members (including several Essex graduates that partipated in student activities) and a cohort of student staff. 

If you ever need to speak to a member of the team, you can pop into SU Reception where the team will be able to answer your query or if it's a more complicated query that requires the expertise of a specific team member, they'll help you book in a catch up with them when they're next free.

We also have a facebook group for all Essex Blades, Rebel, SU Societies and VTeam execs where you can post a question or an idea and get feedback from other execs or our team. 

You can also email the team
