Travelling to Sussex

For those students who have travelled many miles to get to the UK we try and make the last part of your journey as stress free as possible.

Information about travelling to the University from the various air and sea ports can be found here

Also, the university is offering a free coach service from London Heathrow Airport as part of its Meet and Greet service.

If you don’t manage to book a place, or the time of your flight is not convenient for the service, then please read the details above on how to travel to the University of Sussex.

Minibus services

Various minibus services will be available for new students during the arrival weekend and will run as follows:

Falmer Station to campus

  • Saturday 14 September: 9am-8pm
  • Sunday 15 September: 9am-5pm
  • Monday 16 September: 9am-2pm

There will be no trains running to Falmer Station on Sunday 15th September due to a platform upgrade. Rail replacement buses will be running from Brighton and Lewes and they will stop just on the border of campus. Students arriving at Brighton should look out for our Student Ambassadors who can direct you to the free minibus shuttle service which will take you to your campus accommodation.

Brighton Station to campus

  • Sunday 15 September: 9am-5pm

Brighton Station to Kings Road residences (for those students living off campus only)

  • Saturday 14 September: 9am-6pm
  • Sunday 15 September: 9am-6pm

If you are not travelling through any of these stations or plan to arrive outside of the minibus running times, you will need to take a taxi direct to the University (if you will be living on campus) or, if you will be living off campus, you will need to go to the Kings Road residence at 51-53 Kings Road, Brighton, BN1 1NA to collect your keys. There is 24-hour cover available on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 September.
