From flat shares to student digs.

We've got it covered.

WaterBear does not offer student housing. However, we make sure to keep our finger on the pulse with all that Brighton has to offer so you can find the best possible accommodation for you. Brighton is a busy student town, so we recommend anyone needing accommodation to start the search as soon as possible. 

Although Brighton and Hove is a city, it's geographically small and public transport links are very good. Consider looking for accommodation away from the city centre in one of the outlying areas. This approach will save money and you'll still be close to our central Brighton campus. 

Check out some of our accommodation suggestions below.

Rent and share with others

If you are a Facebook user, we have setup a 'WaterBear Accomodation' group which can be a very helpful way of gaining advice and information on accommodation from other members. It is also a great way to network with other WaterBear students, both current and incoming, who are looking for likeminded musicians to live with. You can join the group, here.
