Accommodation for Clearing students

We will have 200 guaranteed University-managed housing vacancies for Clearing in 2022, that will be allocated on a first-come first- served basis. The vast majority of University-managed accommodation is on campus, with a small amount off campus in the city of Brighton.

Students applying for University-managed accommodation will be informed asap whether their application falls within the guaranteed number of places.

From early July, we aim to inform all International Clearing students of their guarantee of an offer within five working days of them receiving a course offer and joining the housing waiting list. We will then send out room details to these students in late July and early August. 

We will endeavour to allocate the remaining guaranteed Clearing students after A-level results (August 18) within seven working days of their course offer.

In the event that we are unable to allocate University-managed accommodation, our Housing Team are able to provide advice and support to help secure accommodation in Brighton’s extensive private rental accommodation sector.
