The Find Us [PDF 1.76MB] leaflet (which is designed to be printed and folded) will help you to navigate your way onto and around the campus. If you are travelling by car, please contact jane.shepard@sussex.ac.uk for a permit which you should print and display when you park on campus. All car parks are for all visitors and you can choose which car park to use (the closest to Bramber House is P10), but you can park in any of the alternatives (P6 has recently closed so avoid this one). The Conference Centre is located on level 3 of Bramber House, which is on Refectory Road [BN1 9QU].
