Modern campuses in great locations
The university has three campuses in Brighton.
We’ve invested heavily in the equipment and facilities, transforming our Moulsecoomb campus in Brighton with new spaces for our students to study, live and socialise. Students use industry-standard facilities designed to build real-world, professional skills they can use throughout their careers. Wherever you’re based you’ll be near the sea and countryside and within easy reach of London.
Brighton is one of the most diverse and popular cities in the UK. With festivals, museums, a lively arts and music scene and independent cafes and shops, Brighton has a forward-thinking attitude which makes it a brilliant place to live and study.
The university’s accommodation team is on hand to help you find the right place to live. Housing options include halls of residence, university-managed housing, privately rented accommodation and homestay with a local family.
International postgraduate students are guaranteed a place in halls of residence in their first year as long as they apply before the accommodation deadline.
