Car park closures for football matches and other events

A number of car parks on the south side of campus are frequently used for parking by Brighton & Hove Albion FC season-ticket holders who are attending matches at the Amex Community Stadium. 

The University works closely with the club to seek to ensure that match days and major University events do not clash. The dates in this table may be subject to change, as the Universities of Sussex and Brighton can make a request to the club to re-arrange matches where they conflict with major university events.

The table below provides an up-to-date list of the days and times when specific car parks are reserved. Football matches will typically impact car parks P1 (Science Car Park), P3 (Biology Road), P4 (Sussex House), and P5 (Sport Centre).
