The Big Build

Moulsecoomb campus development update

We are pleased to confirm that the next stage of the Big Build will commence on Monday 28 January.

Our partners ULiving will take possession of the Mithras car park from this date to enable preparatory works for the construction of our new student accommodation and other facilities.

Mithras car park closure

As previously communicated, the Mithras car park will close permanently from 6.30pm on Friday 25 January. At this point, there will be no car parking spaces available at Mithras and a reduced number of spaces in the Watts car park.

Cycle racks on the middle level of the Mithras car park will also be unavailable from this date, whilst the cycle storage cage at Mithras is expected to remain open for several weeks before being relocated. Alternative bike storage is available in front of Mithras House, to the left of the front door near the fire exit. Storage cages are available at Watts and Cockcroft.

Please ensure you have moved your car or bike from the Mithras car park before the closure.

Whilst we await the completion of the new multi-storey car park, we advise that Moulsecoomb permit holders choose an alternative method to travel to and from work wherever possible.

Parking at The Bridge

Moulsecoomb permit holders can use their permits to park at The Bridge should spaces be unavailable at the Moulsecoomb campus. Onward travel to the campus will be available via the existing UB1 shuttle service and bus links.

Car sharing

A number of dedicated car share spaces will be made available in the Watts South car park from Monday 28 January. Moulsecoomb and Bridge permit holders travelling into the university will be eligible to make use of these dedicated spaces by car sharing. To qualify, drivers must travel to the university with one or more permit holders, and must display at least two Moulsecoomb / Bridge parking permits on arrival. Drivers wanting to car share from The Bridge to Moulsecoomb will need to apply for a specific Bridge car share permit.

Unused car share spaces will be released for general permitted use from 9.30am each weekday.

Students can make their own car share arrangements or search for car share partners on the university’s own car share platform TravelSmart.

Public transport options

Student fares are available on Brighton and Hove buses and you can make savings on train tickets by purchasing a Young Persons Railcard. The Unizone train ticket offers significant savings on Southern Rail tickets when travelling anywhere between East Worthing, Seaford and Eastbourne.

Check out the facilities available across all campuses for walking and cycling, including the discounted  BTN Bike Share scheme and bike shop discounts.
