About Falmer Magazine

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

When alumni are mentioned in Falmer, we publish either their School or subject studied, plus their year of entry, in brackets after their name. For more information, see our list of School and research centre acronyms.

Falmer is currently available in both print and digital format and is shared widely within our community of alumni, staff, students and friends of the University.

If you didn't receive an email alerting you to the latest edition of Falmer, we may not have an up-to-date email address for you. To keep in touch, you can:

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.

Share your views by completing the short reader survey by 27 March 2022 and be in with a chance to win a Sussex hoodie from the Students Union shop.
