How to get here
The Sussex Innovation Centre is located on the University of Sussex campus, and can be easily accessed through all the usual forms of public and private transport. We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment, and hope that our visitors will join us in making the effort to use low-carbon transport to get here wherever convenient. See below for details of how to reach us by bike, train, bus or car. However you decide to get here, use the campus map to get your bearings - you can find our building in the bottom left.
There is step-free access to the building at the rear, and a lift providing access to the first floor.
Travelling by bicycle
Depending on the time of the day, cycling can be one of the quickest ways to travel to the Sussex Innovation Centre. We are served by the National Cycle Network cycling route 90, which runs through Brighton, along the Lewes Road and out towards Falmer. For the more adventurous, there are cycle paths and off road routes from Rottingdean and Lewes.
For cycle routes and infrastructure information, you may find the Brighton and Hove Cycle Map useful, or check the National Cycle Network for routes further afield. We have secure bike parking at the rear of the building, and limited shower facilities. We also encourage the use of electric bikes that make getting to us a breeze from all directions.
If you don't have a bike, then you might want to pick one up from one of the many Brighton Bikeshare docking stations across the city and on campus.
Travelling by train
Falmer station (on the Brighton-Lewes-Eastbourne line) is a 7 minute walk from our centre, passing through the University of Sussex campus. The average journey time between Brighton and Falmer is 8 minutes and from Lewes 7 minutes. Check here for travel details and live departures.
Travelling by bus
Falmer is frequently served by several routes operated by Brighton & Hove Buses. The 5B, 25, 25X and 50U services go via dedicated bus lanes onto the University campus, where you can disembark at Sussex House. The centre is located a short walk up the hill from here. Alternatively, the less frequent 5B services make a short tour around campus and will drop you within 50m of our doors.
The 28, 29, 29B and 29X services run between Tunbridge Wells and Brighton via the A27, stopping just outside of the campus and a short walk from the centre.
Just one bus takes up to 75 cars off the road, improving air quality and cutting traffic congestion. The environmental benefits of the 5B are even greater, as this service is now electrically powered.
If you are starting a new role at the centre, please note that new employees can get free travel to their job for the first 4 weeks.
Travelling by car
Brighton taxi services run to campus from the city centre - call 01273 204060 or 01273 414141 to book. If you're driving here yourself, access is via the A27 in both directions. At the entrance to our car park you will need to buzz reception to be let in.
The Centre installed one of the first electric vehicle charging points in the city, and we have plans to increase the number of these to meet demand in the coming months. Further information on electric charge points can be found on the Brighton and Hove City Council website.
