Keep It On Campus is an initiative designed to raise awareness of University of Essex Campus Services and encourage both students and staff to use the facilities available on campus.

Whenever you see the Keep It On Campus stamp, you're about to buy a product or use a service which is provided by University of Essex Campus Services so all profits generated are used to support and reinvest back into our University.

"Whenever you see the Keep It On Campus stamp you're helping improve our campuses and strengthen the home of our global community."
Bryn Morris, Registrar
