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 (2017/18) if you are:

  • a full-time, first-year undergraduate student applying through UCAS for September 2017 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.

You must apply by 1 August 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.

If you apply after 1 August, 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.
