About Falmer Magazine

Falmer is the University of Sussex’s annual magazine, produced by the Development and Alumni Relations Office.

Falmer is available as a printed magazine or in digital format and is circulated to over 100,000 alumni, staff, students and friends of the University.

We’re always keen to hear readers’ views of the magazine and welcome suggestions for articles, alumni news and photographs, although publication cannot always be guaranteed due to space and resources.

If you live in the UK, North America, Europe or Hong Kong you should receive a printed copy of the magazine in July. If this doesn’t arrive, we may not have your current postal address:
