University of Sussex

The University of Sussex is uniquely placed, nestled in the heart of the South Downs National Park, just outside of the vibrant city of Brighton.

Home to a number of historic listed buildings designed by famed architect Sir Basil Spence, the campus strikes an impressive balance of vivid green spaces and bold architectural legacy.



Accommodation for the duration of the conference is conveniently available on the university campus, in the newly-built East Slope houses.

Breakfast each morning is included with the on-site accommodation.
