The Hexagon

The Hex – make it your space!

An iconic space at the heart of the campus which hosts events for and by our students. Music, dance, art and exhibitions – its all happening at the Hex – and it’s free! You can also get inventive and put on your own event here at the Hex.

All activity in the space takes place against the background of our expansive permanent exhibition on the University’s history, ‘Something Fierce’, an exhibition that explores the founding vision of the University of Essex, its architecture – and what happened when the students turned up!

Workshops have now ended for the 2106/17 academic year but we look forward to seeing you again in the new Autumn term! 

Tuesday –  brush up on your drawing skills in our Life Drawing workshop, 6-8pm

Wednesday – come and get with the beat at our African Drumming workshop, 6-8pm

Thursday – Juggling Society (downstairs) and L’art Society (upstairs), 6-8pm
