Cars and other motor vehicles

Road traffic is now the main cause of pollution in urban areas and, with the population in the South East growing above the national average, this is only set to increase.

Vehicle drivers are three times more likely to be affected by pollution than people cycling or walking by the side of the road, as the pollution is more concentrated in the centre.

An increased dependancy on cars for travelling and less time being spent exercising has helped lead to an increase in obesity. If you are able, walking or cycling to campus is a great way of fitting in your daily exercise without taking up much extra time.

How to get to campus by car

The University is on the A27 between Brighton and Lewes, about 4 miles (6km) from the centre of Brighton. Motorists driving from London and the north should follow the M23 / A23 road towards Brighton. Before you reach the town centre, take the A27 eastbound, which is signposted to Lewes. Drivers from the east or west should take the A27 direct to the University.
