Shops, Bars & Cafe

We run a number of bars, cafes and shops on campus. Our trading company raises profits to help fund societies, sports clubs, campaigns and student representation. Our outlets are staffed by current Sussex students or recent graduates. Everything we do is by students, for students.


We have a handful of bars on campus, whether you're looking for a chilled drink with friends after lectures, somewhere to watch the football or somewhere to have a dance, we’ve got you covered! All of our prices are student friendly but keep your eyes peeled for our Happy Hour deals too!

Our services for your event

Need a venue? Our venues only operate to full capacity during University term time, so there are several months of the year they're available to hire. Additionally, we don't just keep our services stuck in one physical location — oh no! We offer catering packages to University departments, clubs and societies. Our catering team are available to book throughout the year. Similarly we also have the ability to offer pop up bars at events such as festivals, parties, welcome drinks and more.
