Space with us

Conference Centre

The University of Sussex are lucky to have a purpose built, self-contained Conference Centre on site. An ideal space for training seminars, large or small meetings, receptions, exhibition and space for more formal dinners.

The Conference Centre

The conference centre is open for bookings throughout the year, offering various spaces to a capacity of 250 guests. There are two large conference rooms, a terrace room and a gallery room. All are bright and comfortable with high-tech audio-visual equipment. There is also a choice of six syndicate rooms and a spacious networking lounge and bar area. Outside balconies offer beautiful views of the campus and the glorious South Downs.

As a Sussex university staff member we offer discounted day-delegate packages. Included in these packages is room hire and appealing catering options.

Feedback tells us that after the actual content of a conference, food is the second most important element of their experience. Therefore we place great emphasis on our food, and we always aim to exceed your expectations, be it through satisfying menus or bespoke options. We are extremely proud of our team of chefs and we can create delectable food to suit your taste and budget.

To enquire or book events in the conference centre, please contact our supportive events team. Please note that rooms in the conference centre cannot be reserved via the generic university room bookings system (Orbs).  Only our team are able to book the space required and advise you or your event organiser on your options.
