By train

The University of Sussex is located at Falmer railway station (see this map), about 10 minutes by train from Brighton and Lewes. There are trains every 10-15 minutes between Falmer and Brighton, as well as Falmer and Lewes. See here for train times. The Fulton building is a few minutes walk from Falmer Station.

Train services to Brighton depart several times per hour from London Victoria, London Blackfriars, and London Bridge station. Trains from Victoria tend to be the fastest.

By car

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. The University of Brighton also has a campus at Falmer, on the south 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.

The university has parking space for visitors, but you need a parking permit for the day. They are free and easy to get. Please contact the organiser (Martin Berger, email: M.F.Berger@sussex.ac.uk) if you want a parking permit. Please select a space in any of the main car parks. Please do not try to use the "Visitor's carpark". This has a barrier entry by password only. For the various cap parks see this campus map. You will have to return to your car to display the voucher in the windscreen.

By bicycle

If you're a cyclist, you can benefit from purpose-built bike lanes along Lewes Road connecting the University to the centre of Brighton. It takes about 25 minutes to cycle to the campus and there is plenty of bike parking.

By taxi

To get from central Brighton to the Conference Venue, a taxi will take 20 minutes.

By bus

Buses run from Brighton to the university. The 23, 25, 25X, 28 and 29 buses run between the centre of Brighton and the campus. The 25 buses run from Palmeira Square in Hove, through Churchill Square and the Old Steine in Brighton, into the campus. The 23 route runs from Brighton Marina in the east, through Hanover, into the campus. The 28 and 29 go from Churchill Square and stop outside the University campus. Some 5B (Hollingbury) and 50 (Hollingdean) buses also run to the campus. Travel time between the campus and Brighton is about 20 minutes. See bus timetables and information.
