The Student Life Centre (SLC) and the Student Support Unit (SSU) have moved to a new base in Bramber House
.Although the two units are coming together in one location, the services offered and the ways in which they are delivered will remain unchanged.
The Student Life Centre plays a key role in ensuring that Sussex is a supportive and empowering environment for students. The SLC provides information, guidance, referrals and resources to enhance student transition to and progress through the University.
The Student Support Unit is a team of specialist advisors who support students on the autistic spectrum and those with long-term conditions such as Specific Learning Difficulties (e.g. AD(H)D, dyslexia, dyspraxia) and mental-health issues.
Drop-ins for sexual health (X-card and STI testing), counselling, LGBTQ welfare, legal highs, etc. will continue at their usual times in the new location at Bramber House. The Student Wellbeing service will move to the Health Centre annexe next to the Pharmacy.
The Student Life Centre offers information and advice to all Sussex Students. Our aim is to help you to gain the best university experience you can, whatever your circumstances, by ensuring if you run into problems you get appropriate guidance and support.
Student Evaluation Report
Each year since opening in 2010, the Student Life Centre has surveyed users of the service in order to help assess how the SLC is meeting its objectives and to identify areas for improvement
This year we expanded our annual student survey in terms of both questions asked and the collection methods, we employed Survey monkey, offered a prize and an incentive and encouraged participation via Facebook and at our foyer computers for the first time. The survey replicated the questions asked in previous years, so we have comparative data and included new questions focusing on different areas of the SLC’s activity.
