Student media

The University and the Students' Union both aim to ensure that students are provided with accurate and up-to-date information about issues affecting their life and study on campus.

While respecting their different roles, the Students' Union and the University recognise that by working together they can best achieve this aim.

Through the Students' Union, Sussex students publish a website and a weekly newspaper and run both a TV and radio station.

When seeking comment or a statement from members of staff for a story or news item about University business, the first point of contact for student journalists on these outlets is the Internal Communications team.

It is then the job of staff in the Internal Communications team to ensure that these student journalists have access to accurate and timely information and can engage with appropriate staff for comment.


The Students' Union website includes news and information on the elected officers, student societies, upcoming events, advice services, and so on.
