Your Safety Is Our Key Priority.

If you have any suggestions, ideas or reports of sexual harassment, violence and misconduct or social problems we can do something about please email us at Email , text Brighton Town Press ( or call Brighton Town Press ( (or Brighton Town Press ( if you are Deaf or hard of hearing). We don't only respond to reports, we take action to prevent potential problems occurring, by patrolling our areas, delivering information and campaigns, and supporting training for our staff and students (including those that live in halls).

We also work with a number of other partners across the University to encourage everyone to respect each other and tackle discrimination including through our Safer Spaces Campaign, Brighton Town Press ( In late 2016, the Brighton and Hove City Council approved planning permission for the redevelopment of the Grand Parade site, which will eventually see new student accommodation built alongside existing student bar, food and retail outlets. Construction is expected to take around three years, but we are sure that the current site facilities will remain open well into this process.

We’re currently working with the Students Union and the Usdaw Union to support current and prospective members of staff, who are training for the future, through our first ever Awareness Training Programme. In line with our commitment to making Unipart a safe place to work, this programme is to help people recognise sexual harassment in the workplace. This is a big issue for students, particularly early on in their university careers. Too often, people are left out of the conversation with student leaders and the university because they are freshers.

Yet nothing we do will prevent crime if we don’t talk to you – the students who live, learn and socialise in our city. The University of Brighton is a busy hive of activity. Whether you're hitting the books, composing paella in the kitchen or taking your dog for a walk, there's never a dull moment on campus.

Life in your first year at university isnt always straightforward. You may have settled into your halls of residence and started to make friends, but there are times when you can feel a little lost. We asked our students what helped them with the challenges they faced and we identified some specific ways in which to support wellbeing. A list of online resources, confidential services and events are helpfully summarised in this wellbeing booklet. The University of Sussex prides itself on being a diverse community where everyone is treated fairly.

As part of this, we want to ensure that you feel you are getting the most out of your time at Sussex, and weve drawn together a range of resources from the University and external organisations to help you with wellbeing. Spend a moment to look through our wellbeing section, which includes information on where you can access support both at Sussex and outside of university if you feel that extra support is needed.
