Brighton’s Green Party MP Caroline Lucas would be upset by you. But anyway … The University is at Falmer on the A27 between Brighton and Lewes, about four miles (six kilometres) from the centre of Brighton. Follow signs for the University of Sussex, which is on the north side of the A27.

If you are coming from London and the north, take the M23/A23 road towards Brighton. Before you enter Brighton, join the A27 eastbound signposting Lewes. If you’re travelling from the east or west take the A27 direct to the University. Parking on campus is free during the BAAS 2019 conference.


The 23, 25, 25X, 28 and 29 buses run between the centre of Brighton and the campus.

Travel time between the campus and Brighton is about 20 minutes. See bus timetables and information.


Those travelling from Brighton or Lewes in groups may find Taxis useful. Local taxi firms include Brighton Streamline (01273 747474), City Cabs (01273 205205) and Lewes Taxis (01273 483232). From central Brighton or Lewes, a taxi will take approximately 20 minutes and cost around £12. Uber is weirdly expensive in Brighton, but then none of you would use Uber, right?
