Investing in the student experience

Our new Student Centre is at the heart of the student experience at Sussex.

Part of a range of campus development plans to enhance the student experience at Sussex, our Student Centre has become the go-to place for students to get face-to-face information, advice and guidance.

Students can access:

  • spaces for workshops and group work
  • rooms for confidential advice sessions and meetings
  • flexible spaces to meet and collaborate
  • heat and eat facilities
  • the Atrium Market – the first contactless store at a UK university
  • a beautiful sensory garden to relax in and enjoy.

Some of the furniture inside the Student Centre

The Student Centre was built as part of our East Slope development, opening its doors in 2022. From the design of the building to the services it delivers, the Student Centre was designed in collaboration with students.  

Flexible, multi-purpose and fully accessible, the Student Centre is an inclusive space offering confidential support, drop-in sessions, and event spaces to our diverse student body. A dedicated Welcome Team is on hand to help students find the support they need - services include:

  • Careers, Employability and Entrepreneurship
  • Advice and guidance
  • Disability Support
  • International Support
  • Residential life
  • Finance
  • Housing.
