60 years of Sussex
Beginning in August 2021, we celebrated 60 years of Sussex. Explore how we marked six decades of groundbreaking research, providing our students with an exceptional education and how we’ve helped shape the future for thousands of people.
On 16 August 1961, the BG体育app received its Royal Charter. This was an historic moment, not just for Sussex, but for higher education in the UK. We were the first of seven new universities established after the Second World War and we had the freedom to offer a new type of learning.
On our 60th anniversary, we reflected on this legacy, how it’s shaped who we are, and how it’s prepared us to look towards the future.
Sussex in 60 Objects
From architectural gems to outrageous art, from ceremonial silverware to 'I love Sussex' mugs, there are so many objects that help to tell the story of our University.
Here, in celebration of the many parts that help to make the whole, we have trawled our archives, our campus landscape, and our memories to select dozens of objects that we feel reflect what's special and unique about Sussex.
Let's stay in touch
Have a great story about your time at Sussex? We want to hear from you – and we also love hearing what our alumni have gone on to do after leaving university.
