Student accommodation

Accommodation that feels like home

Studying in the UK is a new experience, but living with other students is the best way to experience student life. We work with Student Roost, a student accommodation provider in the UK. Hillfort House is a short walk, cycle or bus ride away from the University of Sussex.

You’ll be able to make new friends from around the world, supporting each other through student life and enjoying everything the city of Brighton has to offer.

How to book your accommodation

Once it is confirmed that you can return to on-campus learning, and if you have requested accommodation, the Central Student Support team will contact you with the latest information on available accommodation and fees.

Arranging your own accommodation privately

If you are booking your own accommodation privately it is important that you let us know where you are staying and that you are staying less than 60 minutes away from the University of Sussex International Study Centre. 

Look out for fraud

Scammers may specifically target international students so it is important to be able to recognise common signs of fraudulent activity and know what to do if you come across it. Let us know at fraudreporting@studygroup.com if you have any concerns about fraudulent activity when dealing with a private accommodation provider so that we can help to protect you and other international students in case they are targeted in the same way.

Useful information

  • Before you arrive, make sure you've arranged your accommodation in the UK. This will ensure that there are no difficulties with confirming your course at immigration, and that you have a place to live. The Central Student Support team can answer any questions you have about our accommodation options and what to pack.
  • Check where and when to collect your room keys. Key collection details are outlined in your room offer.
