We shape the world from a fantastic campus on the UK's beautiful south coast.
We are the only UK university surrounded by a national park, so you can step off campus to explore the hills and woodlands of the South Downs. The vibrant, colourful and creative seaside city of Brighton & Hove is just nine minutes away.
With Brighton voted the happiest city in England for students, (Student Living Survey, Sodexo, 2018) there can be few better places to study.

From the second you walk out of your room, pretty much everything you need on campus is barely ten minutes away, with the perpetual crowd of Library Square forming the centre of the university. Gyms, study areas, lecture halls, cafes and bars, Falmer campus is like a little city tucked away from the rest of Brighton. And whether you're more for a cheap and friendly pub like East Slope, or a cooler bar like Room 76, you're spoiled for choice. But if that's not enough, there's a bus every five minutes leading straight into the culture capital that is Brighton.
