New bike racks coming to campus

Students at Sussex will be able to cycle with greater ease with 120 new bike racks across campus set to be installed over the summer.

The bike racks, which will be in place in time for Freshers Week, will be placed by the Sports Complex, outside Chichester I and around Bramber House.

Vice-Chancellor Adam Tickell promised to introduce more bike racks at both University’s Senate and Council last week, allowing both the President and the Activities Officer to fulfill one of their manifesto pledges.

Frida Gustafsson, President of the Students’ Union, said: “I am really happy this is happening. I think it is a great sign that the University is listening to students and their needs and I think we need to continue making sure that they do”.

She added: “This will hopefully open up more car space on campus and make buses less crowded, as more people will choose to cycle instead. This is the kind of thing that will lead to other changes and make campus a bit better for everyone”.

Frida also thanked Activities Officer Lucy Williams and Societies and Citzenship Officer Aisling Murray for being part of a group working together to make sure new bike racks were put in place.
