Your guide to Brighton student accommodation

Posted on February 12, 2024

It’s a stressful experience, deciding between student accommodation. Trust us, we get it. There are so many new questions you have never even had to consider. Especially if you are living in a totally new city. Where do I live? Where does everyone else live? How do I travel? These are all totally normal, and important, questions to be asking. But where do you get the answers?  

Well, at WaterBear, we’ve put together this handy blog to explain what Brighton’s student accommodation is like, where you should be looking, and where it’s all located. That way, you get an idea at just exactly where is best for you to live!  

Now, WaterBear itself does not provide student accommodation directly. We do, however, work closely with a number of local agencies in Brighton to help source the best possible student accommodation for you. The following is a look at the agencies we work with, the accommodation they provide, and where they are based. 


Eightfold Property 

WaterBear has been working with Eightfold Property ever since we first opened. That should show you how much we trust them to be providing our students with quality accommodation! With a mixture of houses and flats available to rent, all of which are within a convenient distance of Brighton’s city centre, Eightfold is one of the best options for any student in Brighton looking for somewhere to live. Eightfold even have a dedicated team of customer support professionals available to help you with any queries and issues.

Hollingbury House 

The best value-for-money ensuite rooms that any Brighton accommodation has to offer (at least, according to their website), Hollingbury House is a contemporary living space in the heart of Brighton. Within 10 minutes reach of both the city centre and the seafront, Hollingbury House features a wide range of important amenities, including high-speed WiFi, and a large communal area, which includes both an Xbox, kitchenette, and a study space. All the room feature ¾ beds and large en-suites. What more could you want ?!

Student Castle 

Student Castle consists of studios and twin rooms designed in a contemporary, fresh style that focuses what students really need. They offer various facilities, including a mezzanine-style common area, large study space, landscaped courtyard, and two large roof terraces providing breath-taking views across the city. Located very close to Brighton city centre, Student Castle’s Brighton residence is one of the best available. The accommodation even feature free gym membership!

Pavillion Point even has a multimedia room! All bills, contents insurance and high-speed Wi-Fi are also included in the price, and you can share the studios with a partner at no extra cost.

Generating a sustainable Income as an independent DIY musician in 2023

May 24, 2023
Musicians today can leverage many income streams to support a career as an independent musician. We have explored several areas below and further discuss how a music degree can help to build that DIY career. Live Performances Live performances can be a significant source of income for independent musicians. This includes gigs, concerts, festivals, and other live events. Musicians can earn money from ticket sales, merchandise sales, and performance fees. Digital Music Sales Independent musicians can sell their music digitally through online music stores such as iTunes, Amazon Music, and Google Play. This can provide a steady stream of income through album and single sales. Streaming Royalties With the rise of music streaming platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal, streaming royalties have become an important income stream for independent musicians. While the royalty rates for streams are relatively low, the volume of streams can add up and provide a sustainable income.
