Find information about your attendance at Sussex, and what to do if something changes.
Your attendance generally reflects the cycle of the academic year.
See our academic year dates and find out when there are holidays and breaks.
If the University is closed
It is very rare for Sussex to be closed. We are an open campus.
There might be times where there are fewer staff and students on campus, such as:
- if there is severe weather, like heavy snow – see how we’ll communicate with you
- in the event of industrial action
- when we are compelled by law for public health reasons, such as during the Covid-19 pandemic.
In any case, we will keep you updated and make sure you are not disadvantaged in your education.
