Over 40 per cent of our first year students and the majority of our returning students rent private accommodation. Renting privately gives you genuine independence, letting you choose where you want to live and who you want to live with.

Studentpad – your online house hunter
We want to make the process of finding accommodation as easy as possible for you. To do this we work with the University of Sussex to improve standards of student housing and make it easier for landlords to rent to our students. Studentpad is the shared online accommodation search service for students.
