Halls of residence in Hastings

There is one hall of residence for our campus in Hastings.

Robert Tressell hall

This Victorian building was refurbished in 2008 with en suite rooms and shared kitchens on each of the six floors. The rooms vary in size and layout and rents are charged accordingly. There is a spacious communal lounge on the ground floor.

The hall is located in a residential area adjacent to Warrior Square gardens and the seafront in St Leonard's-on-Sea close to the university campus and Hastings town centre.

There are TV aerial points in each bedroom, but you will need to have a TV licence if you intend to bring a television for your own room.

There are two rooms for students with disabilities.
