About the Student Life Centre

The Student Life Centre offers information, advice and guidance to all Sussex students.

Student Life Centre logo

We are here to ensure Sussex is a supportive environment for you, providing help, information and resources to enhance your transition to and through University. Although we do not have a role in influencing University policy and decision making, we can help you understand how the University works and overcome challenges and manage difficulties. 

As a proactive service we may contact you directly to offer you particular support, for example, in response to concern from your School about your attendance, participation or engagement.
