Accommodation for families

Check accommodation options if you have a child or family who will be moving with you for your studies at Sussex.

University-managed family accommodation

There are currently no family vacancies available for the academic year 2023-24 and the waiting list is now closed.

If you are moving to Brighton and Hove to study at Sussex and you have dependents, we strongly recommend that you do not bring your children to the city until you have secured suitable family accommodation in the private sector.

We do not have any emergency family accommodation and would not be able to house you.

If you’re an international student and you have questions about bringing your family to the UK, contact the Housing Services team.

Privately rented family accommodation

We are unable to provide University-managed housing to students who have dependants. If you are coming to study at Sussex and have dependants, you will need to find accommodation for your family outside of the University in the private rented sector. We’ve put together a helpful guide on finding family accommodation in Brighton & Hove and the surrounding areas, including costs to consider, where to search and advice on renting in the UK.
