Jason Wood and Demelza Hall, De Montfort University, Leicester - ‘Universities as a Public Good: Introducing the Square Mile Project’
Wednesday 9th May, 12.30 - 1.30pm
Room A501, Checkland Building, Falmer campus, University of Brighton
De Montfort University’s Square Mile initiative offers a new and innovative way of demonstrating how universities can partner with their local communities to make positive changes. The initiative seeks to demonstrate how the skills, knowledge and expertise of the university can assist and sustain the development of a community and improve the wellbeing and prospects of the residents. This seminar will introduce the Square Mile initiative drawing on the work completed to date. It will present an overview of the particular challenges faced by a modern urban neighbourhood and explore the various strategies used by the university to engage the local community.

Making your way to Falmer
Due to the severe shortage of parking spaces on the Falmer site, we recommend that delegates travel to the event by public transport if at all possible.
The Falmer campus is approximately 7 km from Brighton city centre. Cycle lanes run from Falmer to the city centre. Falmer railway station is a short walk, Moulsecoomb is one stop away and Brighton mainline station three. There is a frequent bus service into central Brighton.
Car parking on campus is limited and a parking permit is required to park on the site. Permits are only given to drivers who can demonstrate that car travel is essential. A free shuttle bus operates from Varley, and a Park and Ride scheme from Moulsecoomb.
- Cycle lanes run from the city centre along the A270 Lewes Road to Falmer. Cycle stands monitored by CCTV are provided on site.
- The 25, 25A and 25C connect the Falmer campus with the centre of Brighton. The 25A then goes on to Hove and Portslade. The 25C links Falmer with east Brighton including Kemptown, the Royal Sussex hospital and the Marina.
- Visit the Brighton and Hove Company website for timetables and more on special ticket deals for students.
- There are up to four trains an hour from Moulsecoomb to Falmer (4 minutes journey time), two an hour direct to Eastbourne (35 minutes journey time) and regular direct and connecting services to Hastings (70 minutes average journey time).
- Visit the National Rail Enquiries website for timetables and passenger information.
- Due to construction work, access for wheelchair access will no longer be available from the platform adjacent to the university, i.e. Brighton bound. Instead, a free taxi pick-up and drop-off service will now operate from the station side, i.e. Lewes bound. You can find out more about temporary disabled access to Falmer here.
Park and Ride
- There is a Park and Ride service from Moulsecoomb to the Falmer campus. The Park and Ride spaces are marked with a thick green line and you must have a Park and Ride permit to park here.
- From the A23:
At the Mill Road roundabout, as you approach Brighton take the left-hand lane signposted Newhaven, Lewes (A27). At the mini roundabout take the 2nd exit (straight over). At the next mini roundabout take the 2nd exit (right) onto the A27 eastbound. Take the exit signposted universities and Falmer (passing the University of Sussex on the left) and turn right at the roundabout. Go over the flyover, straight on at the next roundabout and then turn first right down Village Way.
- From the A27 eastbound:
Follow the directions above from point 2, bearing in mind you are already on the A27 heading towards Lewes.
- From the A27 westbound:
Take the slip road signposted Falmer Rottingdean and Universities (B2124) and at the roundabout, turn left. Turn first right down Village Way.
