Depending on demand, there is sometimes a waiting list for the right tenancy space at our centres, but we can often find a way to accommodate you while waiting for your perfect office to become available. We are always looking for new businesses that will be a good fit for our exclusive community. Our Community and Coworking memberships involve a short application process, and if we think you’ll benefit from joining Sussex Innovation we ensure to work out a way to make it happen.

We have a large on-site car park, with several electronic charging stations and plenty of bike storage. A car parking space is allocated to your business for every 200 square feet of office space taken. Falmer rail station is close to the campus (within 10 minutes’ walk) and buses travel to the campus from both Brighton and Lewes.


There is a secure underground car park below the Centre with limited
tenant parking and plenty of bike storage. The Centre is less than a minute’s walk
from East Croydon rail station and bus and tram links.


The Centre has its own cafe – The Sussex Innovation Cafe – which is open each working day between the hours of 8.30 am and 3:30 pm serving a wide selection of tasty hot and cold food. There are also a range of places to eat and shop for food on campus within a few minutes’ walk.


There are communal kitchens on both floors of the Centre and complimentary tea and coffee is available in the members lounge on the 11th floor. You can shop for snacks in the Sainsbury’s just outside our building, or head across the road to Boxpark for your choice of street food eateries.

We know the challenges of growing a small business, so we strive to be as flexible as possible to your needs. Legal arrangements are covered by a licence for an initial period of two years with a 3-month minimum stay. Three months’ standard notice or 1-3 months’ minimum notice can be given by either party.

Members receive priority and discounted booking for all our facilities, but we also welcome other visitors to our space.

With advance notice, we can arrange catering, promote your event to our community, or provide facilitators for training days.
