Grand Parade Campus

Percy Billington's Grand Parade building, Grand Parade Campus, University of Brighton

In the heart of Brighton, our Grand Parade campus is home to a thriving community of student artists, photographers, designers and, in their own Pavilion Parade annex, our humanities students in politics, history and history of art, design and dress.

It is situated near to the vibrant city centre, close to the Brighton and Hove museum and Art Gallery the seafront, the Royal Pavilion, the historic Lanes and the buzzing atmosphere among the quirky shops of the North Laine.

This campus is approximately a 10-15 minute walk from Brighton train station and less than 5 minutes walk from Old Steine, which provides frequent buses to Brighton and beyond.
