Our campus locations
The University has four campuses with each location having its own distinct character. They are by the sea, within easy reach of London and with great links to mainland Europe and beyond.
An ambitious investment programme is driving improvements to existing teaching and learning spaces and facilities across all of our campuses and expanding much-needed student accommodation in Brighton. ‘The Big Build’ is a development programme that will transform our largest campus at Moulsecoomb in Brighton.
Over the next three years it will deliver five new halls of residence, a new academic building with modern and flexible teaching spaces, a new Students’ Union, new fitness facilities, and a new pedestrian bridge linking both sides of the campus, as well as extensive landscaping and new social spaces.
Our city centre campus is home to 3D design and craft, fine art, graphic design and illustration, digital music, digital media design, fashion and textiles, history of art and design, humanities, media, photography and film. The facilities for making and designing, the theatre, galleries, workshops, studios, archives and the independent arts organisations based on site make for an inspiring creative environment.
Two miles north of the seafront, Moulsecoomb is our largest campus, with students studying a diverse range of subjects including architecture, business, computing, construction, engineering, geography, product design, law and pharmacy. Facilities include car and aircraft simulators, the trading room, usability lab, digital media and games studios, and hydraulics and avionics labs
Four miles away in the South Downs, students study subjects including criminology, English, education, nursing and medicine, paramedic science, psychology and sociology. Brighton and Hove Albion’s Amex stadium and beautiful Stanmer Park are next door. Facilities at Falmer include the Curriculum Centre used by teaching and education students, clinical skills and simulation suites used by health students, and labs for psychology students, including eye tracking technology.
Along the coast, students study sport and exercise, events, hospitality, journalism, adult nursing and midwifery, physical education, physiotherapy, podiatry and tourism. Facilities include accredited exercise physiology laboratories, a newsroom, clinical simulation suites, human movement lab, culinary arts studio, the Leaf Hospital podiatric clinic, occupational health studios, an artificial outdoor pitch and a 25-metre swimming pool.
