Student Life Centre


The Student Life Centre (SLC) and the Student Support Unit (SSU) are located on the Ground floor of Bramber House.

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.
