Rosh Hashanah and Welcome Week 2019

Filed under: News — ckeitch @ 3.45 pm

Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, starts at sunset on Sunday 29 September and coincides with the first couple of days of Welcome Week on Monday 30 September and Tuesday 1 October.

Attending your induction events is compulsory, but if you’re unable to attend any event because of religious observances, like Rosh Hashanah, we understand.

It is important that our Jewish students are able to observe this important religious event, and we appreciate that some students may have a compulsory registration or departmental induction event which clashes with Rosh Hashanah.

If you do not attend your induction events, someone from your department will be in touch with you. However, if you can, please let your department know in advance.

If you are unable to attend your registration:

If you do not attend your allocated registration slot due to religious observances, you will be allowed to attend registration throughout Welcome Week on the following dates and times:

Colchester students:

Southend students:

Loughton students:

Registration at East 15 takes place on Friday 4 October and doesn’t clash with Rosh Hashanah
