Colchester Student Union is the place to go for advice, volunteering, sports, societies and just a 15 min cycle from 27 Magdalen Street.
A lot has certainly changed in recent months. It probably feels like a lifetime ago that you were going about your day-to-day business; back and forth to university, eating out with friends and partying the nights away.
With many restrictions put in place, there’s been a lot of changes to life as we know it. And we know it hasn’t been an easy two months; especially for those away from their families and homes.
That’s why we launched the #AtHomeWithHost campaign. Sharing with you a whole catalogue of activities for you to get involved with and ideas to inspire, motivate and occupy you during the lockdown.
From weekly quizzes and fun challenges, to recipe ideas and creative creations, there’s been something for everyone. And although we’ve already seen some great examples of what you’ve all been up to, we’d love to see some more…
Share your work and WIN!
We’ve spent the past seven weeks talking and sharing our ideas and creations with you, now it’s your time to shine.
We want to hear about (and see) what you’ve been doing during lockdown. How have you kept yourself busy? Have you learnt a new skill? Perhaps you’ve perfected an existing one? Or maybe you’ve done something completely random?
Whether it’s paintings or drawings, poems or songs, dancing or exercising, crafts or cakes, jigsaws or sewing, we’d love to see your creations. What’s more, our favourite will WIN A £50 AMAZON VOUCHER!

Getting serious about the environment we live in.
To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.
It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; BulliesOut, Planet Patrol and World Land Trust.Show me all news
