Bus

There are a number of routes which service the campus from Brighton town centre and along Lewes Road. The 23, 25, 25x and 50U all stop at various points on campus, and the 28, 29 and 29B all stop at Falmer Station, which is located just a short 2-minute walk from campus. The nearest on campus bus stop to the Business School is Bramber House.

The N25 is the night bus that comes to campus from the Seafront and town centre, and runs every 30 minutes from midnight until 5am. You can catch the N25 from Old Steine Stop F (next to the Pavilion), and the bus runs along Lewes Road and back to campus.

To prevent the use of paper tickets, download the Brighton & Hove bus app for e-tickets and regular updates on timetables and services. You can also get a student Key Card through Brighton & Hove buses, which you can top-up and use on the buses!

Trains

Trains run up to every 10-minutes between Brighton and Lewes. Falmer Station is located 2-minutes outside of campus, past the Sport Centre.

Bike

There is a bicycle lane running the whole way from Brighton town centre to the University, with plenty of space to secure your bike once you arrive on campus. The nearest bicycle stand to the Business School is right outside the front.

If you don’t own a bike and want to see if this transport would work for you before you buy, Brighton bike share scheme is now cheaper for Sussex students. The new package for Sussex students offers an annual membership at the discounted rate of £65 (rather than £72) for up to 60 minutes of usage a day, with additional minutes charged at 3p per minute. There is a docking station outside York house for 12 bikes, as well as a docking station for 20 outside the Sport Centre.

There are also a number of second-hand bike shops in Brighton, where you can by bicycles at a cheaper price.

Parking on campus

On campus parking permits are not available for students unless under special circumstances. There are a limited number of parking permits available for Bridge Car Park, which is a short walk from campus.
