How to contact us.


The University of Sussex is easily accessible by train, bus or car. Click here for a map of the area and a map of the university .

The CSE is on the fifth floor of the John Maynard Smith (Biology) building. The entrance on the south side of the building, via Biology Road, allows wheelchair access.

By train

The university is a three minute walk from Falmer train station. Brighton and Lewes are the nearest junction stations - change at Brighton if travelling from London or the west, Lewes if travelling from the east. Both stations are about eight minutes from Falmer, and trains run every 15 minutes during the day. Click here to check train times.

Once at Falmer train station, exit through the station building, follow the signposted path, and go through the underpass. At the Y-junction ahead, turn right onto Southern Ring Road, and continue approximately 100 metres until the intersection with North-South Road. The Biology building is to your left across the street.

By bus

The number 25 bus runs from the centre of Brighton to the university campus at least four times an hour during the day and more frequently at peak times. The journey takes approximately half an hour. The first stop on campus is outside Sussex House, on Southern Ring Road. If you alight here and continue along this road in the same direction for approximately 20 metres you reach the intersection with North-South Road, and the Biology building is across the street from you. Click here for the timetable.

Bus services 28, 30, 728 and 729 also run from Brighton, and stop just outside the entrance to campus, on the A27. Enter the university on Falmer House Road, turn right onto Southern Ring Road, and continue as above to find the Biology building. Timetables can be found on this site.

By car

The University is on the A27 road between Brighton and Lewes, about four miles (six kilometres) from the centre of Brighton.

Visitors driving from London and the north should follow the M23/A23 road towards Brighton. Before you reach Brighton town centre, take the A27 eastbound which is signposted to Lewes.

Drivers from the east or west should take the A27 direct to the University. (Please note, opposite the University of Sussex campus at Falmer is the University of Brighton's Falmer site. You should follow the signs to 'Sussex University'.)

There are two designated visitor car parks (opposite Sussex House, and in front of the East Slope accommodation); to gain access you need to announce your arrival to University security staff via the intercom system.
