How to book your accommodation
Once you have confirmed your place on your course, the Central Student Support team will be in touch with details on the available accommodation and how to apply.
Students under the age of 18 must arrange their accommodation through the Centre. You will receive an invitation to apply for our accommodation when you confirm your place.
Arranging University-managed Accommodation
University-managed accommodation includes both en suite and shared bathroom options across the University of Sussex campus. All rooms are self-catered.
Once you confirm your place on your course we will be in touch to let you know about the room types currently available and ask you for your preference.
Please note that on-campus accommodation is not available for students under the age of 18.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
- 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.
- Accommodation is subject to availability. The cost shown is intended as a guide only, and subject to change. The cost of your room will be confirmed in the tenancy agreement.
Arrange your room
We recommend contacting the student support team before sourcing your accommodation, please contact SussexISC.CSS@Studygroup.com to enquire about our currently available accommodation options.
Find your way around the University of Sussex campus
I'm living in university accommodation and my flatmate is really familiar and friendly. So I really like to have conversations with my flatmate, and sometimes we are studying together and can share our opinions. Also we share the same culture, so it is really nice.
