  • What is the Research Hive?

    The Sussex Research Hive is the Library's designated area for researchers, open to all doctoral researchers and research staff. It provides private study areas, bookable meeting rooms and space for discussion and collaborative work.

    It is located on the top floor of the Library and researchers will need to scan their Library cards to gain entry.

  • Partnership with SAGE

    SAGE Publications have given funding to support both the Research Hive and the Sussex Research Hive Scholar programme, supporting the Library's innovative work in engaging with the research community at Sussex.

    The Research Hive Scholars contribute to the SAGE Perspectives blog
