The details of the UB1, the university’s free shuttle bus for 2021-22 are detailed below.

The university’s weekday free shuttle bus service, UB1, links all of our Brighton campuses and Varley Halls during term time and is operated by National Express.

The UB1 service operates a circular route from the Falmer campus to Old Steine, taking in Varley Halls, Moulsecoomb campus and The Level. The low emission bus is fully-accessible with free on-board Wi-Fi and phone charging points.
