The University of Sussex was the first of the new wave of universities founded in the 1960s, receiving its Royal Charter in August 1961. 50 years on, the University has become a leading teaching and research institution with over 12,000 students from around the world.

Sussex has one of the most beautiful campus locations in Britain. Situated in rolling parkland on the edge of Brighton, the campus combines award-winning architecture with green open spaces. The campus is surrounded by the South Downs National Park, but just a few minutes away from the lively city of Brighton and Hove.

Designed by Sir Basil Spence, the buildings that make up the heart of the campus were given listed building status in 1993. Falmer House is one of only two educational buildings in the UK to be Grade I listed in recognition of its exceptional interest.

We have undertaken significant investment in recent years to make our heritage buildings accessible and we are very pleased to be working with DisabledGo on making information about our campus accessible to all. If [you think that] any of this information is inaccurate, please let us know at
