Investing in the student experience
Our new Student Centre will be at the heart of the student experience at Sussex.

Not only is our landmark new Student Centre a significant building project – it’s also part of our range of initiatives to transform the student experience at Sussex.
Our new Student Centre will be the go-to place for students to access face-to-face information, advice and guidance services when it opens in the academic year 2021–22.
Inside the new Student Centre.
Facilities in the new Student Centre will include flexible spaces for students to meet and collaborate, spaces for workshops and group work, rooms for confidential advice sessions and meetings, and an outdoor courtyard, as well as office space for our staff who work directly with students.
An unlicensed café will form part of the development as well as five new retail units near the front entrance.
The space is being designed to be flexible so that it can be used in different ways at different times across the academic year. The overall aim is to create a welcoming and inclusive space for our diverse student body.
The new Student Centre will be more than just a building. Until it opens in the academic year 2021–22, the project team will be continuing to canvas feedback from students around its design and use as well as the services that will be delivered from it.
