Good gym but changing rooms need cleaning more often, especially the floors

University of Sussex Falmer Sports Complex says:

Thanks Thomas for your feedback and your comments are noted and will ensure we look again at the cleaning regimes

Decent range of equipment, does get extremely warm in the height of summer in the strength room however as no air con apart from in main room!

University of Sussex Falmer Sports Complex says:

Thanks Dan for the feedback and yes sadly the AC is lacking in the larger strength room however we were told the room is to big a space for them to have any affect. We have however just bought two large fans for that room now which hope will make a difference
