UEA has nurtured independent thinking since 1963. A vibrant community united by difference we celebrate diverse voices and backgrounds, challenge convention, and call for positive change.
For nearly sixty years our students have found their place at UEA, found their world in ours. Now it’s time for a whole new cohort to find a community to call home.
Meet friends through sports clubs and societies, take care of your mental health and wellbeing at student-led workshops, join Multiplayer Monday, Gaming Wednesdays or Fantasy Thursdays, get top tips and advice from the Student Information Zone – and make UEA yours.
