About the department
The department is responsible for leading four main areas - accommodation, Southcoast Conferences, hospitality and community liaison. The central office, located in Exion 27, co-ordinates these areas and provides support to the various offices, facilities and outlets within the department.
Accommodation services manage the university halls of residence at Moulsecoomb Place, Phoenix and Varley Park, and work with Sanctuary Housing, London & Quadrant, and Viridian who manage halls on our behalf at Falmer and Eastbourne. The accommodation offices in Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings provide comprehensive housing information, help and advice to all students.
Southcoast Conferences are responsible for letting the university's residential accommodation, seminar rooms, halls and function rooms when not being used for academic purposes. They also manage the Varley Park conference centre.
Hospitality services are responsible for the provision of food and beverages on all campuses. This includes a range of restaurants, cafes, licensed bars and vending machines. The service also provides catering for both internal and external meetings, functions and events.
The community liaison team acts as a bridge between our student population and the local community, and includes our own warranted police officer, who is dedicated to crime prevention as well as assisting any student who is the victim of a crime. The team help with a multitude of issues including housing, legal questions and relations with the community, regularly liaising with residents’ associations and other external agencies to promote and maintain positive relationships between students and other residents.
