Campus open today

Following snow overnight, the University of Sussex campus is open and we expect all services to operate as usual today (Friday 1 February).

The Estates team have been working hard to clear snow and grit pavements, paths and roads.

Campus safety

All campus users need to take care in snow and ice - not all paths have been cleared and steps may be treacherous.

Essential services on campus

Essential services - e.g. security and residential services (e.g. York House and Stanmer Court residential services open) - for students living on campus are being maintained.

If you live on campus and need to report a fault or other housing problem, go to the 24-hour reception in York House.

Security staff are on campus and can be contacted on ext 8234, or in emergencies ext 3333, or in person at York House.

Travel to and from campus

A small number of car parks on campus are currently closed:

  • Upper Arts car park (P7A)
  • Lewes Court (P9)
  • IDS
  • CISC

It is possible that travel to campus from your home will take longer than usual, so please do take care and leave extra time to get in.

For information on road conditions, tune into your local radio station (such as BBC Sussex) for travel bulletins.

See the bus company's online snow updates and check @BrightonHoveBus on Twitter.

For updates on other public transport, follow your provider’s service updates on their websites or on Twitter: @SouthernRailUK @TLRailUK @StagecoachSE.

Snow and ice procedures

The University’s web pages about snow and ice procedures set out how the campus is managed in the event of a snowfall.


We will review the situation throughout the day and will keep you informed of any changes.

Service providers should email to provide updates to be added here.
