University of Brighton Accommodation
If you want to live in university accommodation, you have plenty of options to choose from in Brighton: halls of residence, unihomes, reserved rooms and homestay. In 2016 we offered every eligible student who applied a place in one of these options.
All university accommodation is either managed or checked by us, so standards are high and you have peace of mind.
There are catered and uncatered halls in four locations across the city.
We have halls of residence at four locations across the city. Prices range from around £76 to £180 per week, with the cost of some halls including breakfast and an evening meal during term time. Our allocation policy explains who is eligible to apply for university accommodation.
Costs listed below are for 2017 entry. The 2017 application deadline for accommodation is 15 July.
University-managed houses and flats you apply for in the same way as halls.
The university lets properties out to our students on behalf of private landlords. These are called Unihomes, and you can apply to live in a Unihome in the same way as halls.
We ensure the standard of accommodation meets our requirements and you only deal with us while still having the freedom of living in a shared house or flat. If you are considering renting your property to students, please email email@example.com and we’ll send you our guide for landlords.
Please note that the accommodation costs below are accurate for students starting in 2016. The 2017 costs will be published when they become available.
Private rented houses managed by letting agents and reserved exclusively for our students.
We work in partnership with a number of letting agents to provide private rented houses in Brighton and the surrounding area for the exclusive use of our students.
All the properties offered through the reserved room scheme meet housing legislation requirements and standards, including those for Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO).
If this option is made available to you, you’ll be renting a room in a shared house with other University of Brighton students – a great opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.

Renting a room from a family, couple or single person in the local area.
Homestay gives you the extra security of living with a family, couple or single person in the local area who have been endorsed by the university. The scheme is particularly popular with international students and is able to accommodate varying length of stays, from two weeks up to a whole academic year.
Homestay is only available in the Brighton area where there is demand for the service, whether you are studying or on placement. Rooms can be provided on a self-catered or catered basis, depending on whether you want to have your meals cooked for you. We also have shared rooms if you know another student you want to share with.
If you’re interested in applying for Homestay, phone us on 01273 644100 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our accommodation team can advise on availability and help you to find a suitable host.
