Our online property database
Studentpad is the university's online house-hunting system to help students find good quality accommodation. It includes a database of properties which are owned by private landlords in Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings who have agreed to make sure that their properties meet our code of standards. Studentpad also has advice on renting and a message board to help you find housemates.
Who can use it
The service is free and can only be used by University of Brighton and University of Sussex students and applicants.
How to use it
You will need to get a password from the accommodation office. Contact us with your University of Brighton student ID number or UCAS application number and your date of birth to get your password.
Remember, you must always inspect the property yourself to ensure it meets your needs before agreeing to rent it. Just because a property is listed on Studentpad it does not guarantee it will have the features that you want.
Benefits of finding accommodation through Studentpad

We work with the University of Sussex to keep rents to an affordable level. We also work with Brighton and Hove City Council to support their Accreditation Scheme, which aims to raise the standards of rental property management.
We welcome any comments that you may have and will investigate any serious concerns.
