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

Students and staff can book out the Hex via the University of Essex’s Central Room Bookings.
