Help settling in at Sussex

Join our Buddy Scheme to receive peer support from a current Sussex student who will help you settle in using their knowledge and experience of the University and Brighton.

The Buddy Scheme is here to support your transition from home to University and during your time at Sussex if you are struggling.

Our Buddy Scheme volunteers are here to help you!

We also have a number of policies that contribute to our commitment to creating a safe and inclusive environment for everyone:

Equality & diversity policy »

 Zero tolerance policy »

Mental health & wellbeing policy »

Policy against sexual violence »

No platform policy/policy against racism »

Policy against the inequality of women »

In addition we also have a bullying and harassment policy and disability statement.

If you have witnessed or are informed of an incident which you feel may be considered misconduct by a Union member, we have a student discipline procedure to deal with your concerns or you can use the University's discipline procedure.
