Induction - Starting with us

Travelling to Sussex

We know that many of our new students will have travelled many miles to get to the UK, so to try and make the last part of your journey as stress-free as possible we have provided some information below to help you find your way to the campus.

Information about travelling to Brighton and to the University campus  from the various airports and sea ports in the UK can be found on our Welcome and Arrival pages under the section 'Travelling to the University of Sussex'.

To help make your journey to Brighton and to the University campus easier, the University is offering the following services during Arrival Weekend (13-14 September 2014):

  • there will be University representatives at Heathrow and Gatwick airports to welcome you to the UK and advise you regarding how you can continue your onward journey to Brighton (to see which terminals they will be based at, and when, please see here)
  • free pre-bookable coach service from London Heathrow Airport (to see exact coach times and to book a place on one of the coaches please see here)
  • minibus service from Falmer train station to the campus residences in the daytime hours
  • minibus service from Brighton train station to King's Road off-campus residence (where any new students allocated a place in King's Road residence or Head-lease properties should go to collect keys for their accommodation) between 9am and 6pm

If you are arriving outside of these times, or if you have any further questions about your journey to Brighton or to campus, please contact us on
