The Student Life Centre will be closed for staff training on Wednesday 15th
April from 9.45am - 1.30pm. We apologise for any inconvenience.
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.
