In the centre of the campus, Sub Zero is Essex University’s main scene for night life. Although it generally hosts many Essex students, it is also often open to guests. Guests are mainly accompanied by a student, however it is sometimes possible for normal guests to attend the nights out. Sub Zero not only plays host to many themed nights, like foam parties, paint parties, UV parties, and fancy dress themes, they also accommodate many guest acts. These have included acts from Pendulum, Redlight, Jaguar Skills, DJ Fresh, Wheatus, and many other guest DJ’s and groups. Often many very well known radio DJ’s like Tim Westwood, Jameela Jamil, Danny Howard, Zane Lowe to name a few. Other themed nights at the University club include Milk it! which has now been moved to the Student Union bar upstairs, Sports Fed, Flirt!, Unifi, and Super Sundays. Sub Zero accommodates for a variety of different music tastes and styles.
The events are run by the Essex Students Union so it is tuned to students needs especially, and welcomes feedback from its students on how to improve their nights or suggestions to tune their nights to the students needs better. Along with providing great nights out with many bouncers and staff to ensure a fun and safe night out, there is often free give-aways and activities on certain nights out like free pizza, hats, glowsticks, etc. (subject to availability and usually first come first serve). In addition to this, they also do great drink deals on some nights, Stock Exchange in the Students Union bar is a prime example of these deals. With reasonably priced tickets and drinks, its not only a fun night out but for students especially its a very good place to enjoy yourself without denting your bank balance too much! I would definitely recommend the Uni campus for a good night out with friends, whether it be a heavier night out down in Sub Zero, or a few casual drinks in the SU bar, Essex University Colchester campus is a must for students or guests.
