The University is open today, but due to the severe weather there is expected to be extensive travel disruption this morning (Monday 28 October).

The peak of the storm was expected to be 7am to 9am. Updates regarding our campuses will be posted here and on our Facebook page and Twitter feed.

Options 2013 Careers Fair will be taking place today at the University's Colchester Campus.

Students should check their email and text messages for updates from their department about any lectures or seminars which have been cancelled. If students have any further questions they should contact their departments directly. 

Greater Anglia and C2C train services were initially suspended due to the weather. Extensive disruption to train services has continued throughout the day with only very limited services provided.

Several roads have been blocked due to accidents or fallen trees. For more information about road disruption in Essex see the BBC Travel News webpages.
