A lot of people still turn up at this blog looking for information about the Sussex Pad.

What, they ask, happened to it? What are Lancing College’s plans for the hotel?

Well, we’ve no idea what plans are in the long-term, but right now it’s being used as a temporary boarding house:

February 2014 marked the start of a two year, multi-million pound refurbishment project, which will see a significant upgrade and complete refresh to the accommodation in all of Lancing College’s Boarding Houses.

The project has, in part, been enabled through the re-acquisition of The Sussex Pad. “The Pad” will act as temporary accommodation for students, as each House is upgraded in turn.
