How to Find us

For directions to campus use the University "How to find us" page, or view Sussex Astronomy in Google Maps.

 The Astronomy Centre is on the middle floor (confusingly called Level 4) of the Pevensey III building. It is marked on the Campus Map.

If you are walking from the station, follow the sign to University of Sussex (NOT Brighton) which takes you under the main road. Once on the campus, you turn right at the first junction then left, keeping on the pavement by the road. Keep going under the bridge which goes over the road, until you see some steps on your right going up to the main entrance of the Pevensey II building (building 50 below). The reception is by the main entrance, or you can head straight up one flight of steps and then turn right to wiggle into the astronomy corridor (which is actually part of building 26). This is the route:
