Accommodation

Find a place you can call home at Sussex. If you are guaranteed accommodation, you can apply to live on or off campus in University-managed residences and housing. And to help you look for private rooms and student houses, we can give you advice on renting.

Accommodation guarantee

You are guaranteed a place in University-managed housing if you are:

  • a full-time, first-year undergraduate student applying through UCAS for September 2017 or September 2018 and you firmly accept our offer
  • a full-time Masters student from outside the European Union
  • a full-time, first-year PhD student studying for a full academic year.

If you are applying for a course that starts in September 2018 you must apply by 30 June 2018 to be guaranteed housing.

If you are applying for a course that starts in September 2017 you must apply by 1 August 2017 to be guaranteed housing, and if you are a Masters or PhD student, you also need to pay a £300 pre-payment by 1 August 2017.

If you apply after the deadline, we consider your application as an expression of interest. However, we will do our best to house you and help you look for private accommodation.

You can't apply for University-managed housing after your first year (unless you have health or accessibility needs.) 

To help you rent a room, flat or house in Brighton & Hove and the local area, we can give you advice and check your tenancy agreement, or you can search for accommodation through Sussex Studentpad.
