Your housing

At Sussex, our accommodation offers unique benefits, so you can feel at home with us.

You will:

    • live in the heart of campus so you can relax after your studies and unwind in our cafés and bars 
    • be surrounded by the rolling hills and woodlands of the South Downs National Park
    • get all year-round support from our Residential Advisors
    • immerse yourself in our diverse and international community.
What I enjoy the most about Sussex is the cultural aspect. Being a residential advisor, I have had the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life and create long-lasting friendships."
