The colourful houses of Hanover in Brighton

Halls of residence

We have more than 2,000 places in halls of residence (self-contained student blocks): 1,600 places in Brighton (at our Falmer, Moulsecoomb, Grand Parade and Varley Park sites), 354 in Eastbourne and 60 in Hastings. We offer different types of hall accommodation at some of the best prices in the south-east.

Most of our accommodation is in single rooms, but we do have some double rooms, flats for student couples and disabled students, and each hall has flats designated for mature students. How to apply for halls.
