Accommodation for families

Explore accommodation options if you have a child or family who will be moving with you when you come to Sussex.

University-managed family accommodation

We have around 20 family flats, most of which are on campus. Most family flats have one bedroom, and are suitable for up to two adults and one child.

Our family flats are in high demand, and you can only apply for a family flat if you have a child who will be living with you while you study. We can't guarantee you University-managed family housing.
