In the meantime, explore the cafés and bars below.

Eat Central

Located in the heart of campus, Eat Central canteen serves globally inspired food throughout the day.

From fresh croissants and bagels during breakfast to Moroccan tagines during lunch and dinner, Eat Central is a great place to restore energy and catch up with friends after lectures.

Arts Piazza

Arts Piazza is a coffee-lovers dream, thanks to its triple-certified coffee and first-rate baristas.

Accompanied by a delicious range of home-made cakes, bakes and other treats, Arts Piazza maintains a homely feel in the centre of a buzzing campus.

Falmer Bar

Falmer Bar is a lively Students’ Union venue, serving a wide range of hot food and drinks at student-friendly prices.

Newly renovated, the bar overlooks a large patio garden perfect for sunny days, people-watching and enjoying one of the best sunsets in Brighton.

Elsewhere on campus

There’s plenty of other options to choose from with nine Sussex Food outlets open during the summer, including Street Food from our pop-up outlets, vegetarian options from Dhaba and homemade cakes from Library Café.

All SussexFood outlets offer contemporary menus and an ethical approach to sourcing ingredients.
