An Old Brightonian's return to visit the College can be a daunting experience when faced with the extraordinary changes and developments that may have taken place since they left the place. Most of the College is of course largely untouched and instantly recognisable, but some parts will be completely new to most of you.

We've started a gallery on Facebook to archive old campus photos & show the pace and scale of developments over the years - please do send in your old photos of the buildings and campus (with a clear indication of when the pictures were taken); we'd love to feature them here also.

Please do send in your photos - in as high resolution as you can - to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
