The American Express Community Stadium is to the southeast side of Falmer station, and is easy to access via bus, train or from campus. Coming from Sussex campus, use the stairs to the right of the station entrance which will take you straight to the stadium.

Reasonable adjusments 
We are looking at ways to improve accessibility for the event, for example supporting students who may require reasonable adjustments to speak one-to-one with a selection of employers.

If you would like to find out more about reasonable adjustments available please use this form and we will be in touch soon with further details.
