Our academic building

The School of Business, Management and Economics is housed in the Jubilee Building - the newest academic building at Sussex.

Jubilee sits right in the heart of our campus - close to the main cafes, shops, and on-campus accommodation. In front of the building is an impressive outdoor square, with open grassed areas and seating. Plus, the Jubilee Building also has its own modern cafe and social space.

Jubilee was built to celebrate Sussex's 50th anniversary in 2012. The design aimed to complement the surrounding iconic Sussex architecture, while creating a visually stunning building in its own right - with a focus on sustainability.

Research facilities and study spaces

The design of our Jubilee Building supports study, research and collaboration through a variety of inspiring yet practical spaces:

  • flexible working spaces throughout the building, including our study pods and small seating areas
  • a large undergraduate social study space with computers
  • two postgraduate social spaces, providing a quiet room for research as well as networking. Plus, if you're a PhD student, you have access to our staff kitchens
  • 120 offices, meaning that students and faculty share the same spaces, leading to a high level of collaboration and a community feeling.

The Jubilee Building is an excellent place to work and to study.’
