Unlimited train travel for students in the unizone area

Are you a student who wants unlimited train travel in your area?

Unizone is a unique Season ticket exclusively available for students in the Brighton or Worthing areas.  

How to qualify

To buy a new Unizone ticket you will need the following:

  • A valid 16-25 Railcard before you can buy a Unizone ticket
  • Valid ID confirming you are a student at the University of Sussex, University of Brighton, University of Chichester, Plumpton College, BHASVIC, or hold a National Union of Students (NUS) card for a college in Sussex.

16-25 Railcards are available to the following people:

  • Those aged between 16 and 25 years old can purchase a 1 year or 3 year Railcard
  • Mature students over 25 years old can purchase a 1 year Railcard, but will need:

    • To be attending a recognised college or university, for over 15 hours a week, at least 20 weeks a year. Unfortunately, Open University, distance learning and part-time courses do not qualify.
    • To have the mature student section of the 16-25 Railcard application form completed by their College or University.
    • Have an NUS card or College/University photocard as proof of identity. 

Railcards can be purchased online at or at any staffed Ticket Office.

Please note that you cannot buy the Unizone ticket at ticket vending machines or on the train.

As the 16-25 Railcard includes a photo, there will no longer be a requirement to hold a National Rail photocard anymore.
