Sussex in 60 objects

Join our celebration of our 60-year history through the stories of 60 iconic Sussex objects.

From architectural gems to outrageous art, from ceremonial silverware to ‘I love Sussex’ mugs, there are so many objects that help to tell the story of our University.

Here, in celebration of the many parts that help to make the whole, we have trawled our archives, our campus landscape and our memories to select dozens of objects that we feel reflect what’s special and unique about Sussex.

But we haven’t yet got to 60. As part of our Sussex community, what would you like to add to our box of treasures? Whether it's your Students' Union society hoodie, the most reliable printer in the Library or your trusty B&H bus card, we want to hear from our students, staff and alumni. Help us complete Sussex in 60 Objects by sending in your nominations for our final theme – Life at Sussex.
