Where city, countryside and coast meet
We shape the world from a fantastic location that combines both tranquillity and energy.
We are the only UK university surrounded by a national park, and yet we’re only a stone’s throw away from Brighton, one of the top-10 city beach destinations in the world (Lonely Planet). Brighton is a vibrant place to live in with its artists, activism, politics and music, and it has been voted the happiest city in England for students (Student Living Survey, Sodexo).
Our campus is well served by train, bus and road and we are only nine minutes away from Brighton. We’re also only an hour away from Central London by train and 30 minutes from London Gatwick, one of the UK's major international airports.
The cosmopolitan atmosphere of our campus means it is the perfect place to make new friends from across the world. More than 16,000 students from over 120 countries study at Sussex and almost a quarter of our students come from outside the UK.
You’ll find everything you need on campus, from a health centre with a daily drop-in service to childcare facilities. Our campus is like a large village, with everything you need for day-to-day life. This includes a bank, post office, GP surgery, dentist, and pharmacy as well as numerous cafés, bars and restaurants, and a weekly food market.
