University of Brighton to unify its five campuses though HASSELL masterplan 

The University of Brighton has selected HASSELL to design a masterplan which will generate a more united front for the institution’s five campuses. At this point in time, the university is run through five separate bases spread across Sussex (UK) in Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings.

Details of the plans - generated by HASSELL studios in London, Shanghai and Brisbane, and managed by GVA commercial property agents - are yet to be released, however the practice has stated that it looks to create a ‘more vibrant and connected estate’.

Speaking on the announcement, Julian Gitsham, Principal at HASSELL, said: "Like many universities around the world, the University of Brighton is responding to the learning and research needs of an ever-changing and more technologically-focused world, where students, staff and stakeholders expect high standards of service and environment."

"The university understands that through creative urban design, a considered campus can provide a powerful lever for change and future success. The university has already started on this journey and we are developing an innovative approach in the way the campuses support the student experience through meaningful connection with the cities and towns the university sits within."
