The university is committed to improving opportunities for local people and boosting the town's economy by attracting new students to the region.
The campus first opened as the University Centre Hastings in 2003 with 40 students, 5 staff and three courses; it was the first university centre in the country. Today, the University of Brighton’s Hastings campus teaches around 1,000 students and offers over 30 courses in a range of subject areas.
By studying at the University of Brighton in Hastings, our students are part of a community of 22,000 students and 2,600 staff based on five campuses in Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings. We have one of the best teaching quality ratings in the UK and a strong research record, factors which contribute to our reputation as a leading post-1992 university.
By offering excellence in the heart of Hastings, we enable people who have work or family commitments in the town the chance to fulfil their ambitions through university education.
