Coronavirus latest

The government has put in place restrictions to control the spread of Covid-19.

This means changes to the start of term for all students, including:

  • Only Sussex students studying Medicine, Teaching and Social Work should return to campus for studies.
  • All other students should not return to Sussex.
  • Unless you are already living locally (or studying Medicine, Teaching or Social Work) you must not travel back to your local University address until we have clearance for you to do so.
  • The start of Semester Two will be online for a lot of students until at least the end of February.

If you have Covid-19 symptoms you must self-isolate and let us know using our symptom reporting form.
