Campus facilities

You'll find everything you need on our campus, from a health centre with a daily drop-in service to childcare facilities.

Students at student support

We're investing £500 million to further develop our beautiful campus and provide you with the best possible facilities. The extensive development programme includes new student accommodation and social spaces, as well as innovative academic and research buildings.


We have a variety of housing available on campus which means you can live a short walk from where you learn and socialise. You can apply for University-managed accommodation once you have received an offer from Sussex.
