We encourage everyone at Sussex to use sustainable transport to travel to campus whenever possible.

Sustainable travel policy

One of the key objectives of the University's travel plan is to improve sustainable forms of travel to campus, thereby encouraging people not to travel by car, and instead make use of public transport or cycling options.
