COVID-19 Service Update

Room 76, Northfield Bar, The Clubhouse and The Union Shop will remain closed for now.

Falmer Bar is open subject to revised hours and changes to operations. The Deli is open for collection. Falmer Bar & The Deli also offer a delivery service. Southern Co-Operative's current opening ours are 7am - 8pm. Sussex branded merchandise is available to buy online from The Union Shop

We would like to thank you for your continued support during these difficult times.

The Co-op is our on-campus convenience store, located on the ground floor of Bramber House in the centre of campus. Run in partnership with the Students’ Union, our Co-operative store is the largest provider of student jobs on campus.

You can expect a wide range of products including; sandwiches and lunch options (£3.50 meal deal and Totum student discount available), groceries, ready meals, fresh produce, a range of frozen goods, alcoholic beverages and tobacco products. Essentially, we sell everything that you’d imagine a small, local shop would! There is also an in-store bakery selling fresh bread and pastries, newspapers available and a Post Office counter (located in the back left hand corner of the store).

Our Co-operative is staffed entirely by students, employed with flexible working conditions to fit around their academic commitments, or recent Sussex graduates.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, The Co-operative store is operating revised opening times.

We also have social distancing measures in place and ask that customers observe a 2 meter distance to other customers and colleagues working in the store. For customer and colleague safety we are only allowing a maximum of ten people in the store at one time.

When restocking the store, colleagues will close an aisle to ensure they can safely restock the shelves.

Face coverings must be worn in the store. - Gov.UK guidance
