Welcome to the most exciting sports club to splash onto campus! University of Sussex Swimming Club (USSC)!

Making sure everything goes swimmingly this year is your fantabulous committee...

President: Bryony Cairns

Team Captain: Xavier Chan and Nick Howell

Club Captain: Iniga Stoodley

Merchandising and Treasurer: Matteo Ragni

Social Secretary: Ellie Dillamore


The club is developing and growing year on year, in 2016 our team won their first ever varsity title against Brighton Uni! If you're looking to get involved and race or just maintain your swimming fitness, we've got something for you. So come along and try it out!


The times and days of our weekly sessions at the Brighton Swimming School are below:

Tuesday: 9.30pm - 10.30pm

Friday: 8pm - 9pm

Sunday: 6.00pm - 7.00pm

The easiest way to get to our pool is by the 23 bus from Falmer getting off just after the hospital stop (Chesham Street). If you want a warm up before you get the pool, cycling is also an option, it takes approx. 30-35 mins from Sussex campus.

Address of the pool: Brighton Swimming School, Eastern Road, Brighton BN2 5JJ 

Socials: We plan on doing lots of social stuff throughout the year; for example bowling, pub quizzes and dinners, and of course the occasional Pryzm wednesday! We will keep you posted about our socials on our facebook page.


Buy membership through this page (there should be an option on the right). Once you have bought membership go to Falmer House to get your university card stamped (at the activities office). If you do not have a stamped card you will not be allowed in the pool after the taster sessions. We will be checking to make sure your card is stamped after the first few weeks. Also make sure you join our facebook group (and follow us on instagram: sussexswim), as we will be posting news and updates there.

See you in the pool!
