Sussex Downs College is based over two campuses, Eastbourne and Lewes, resulting in cheaper accommodation than the Brighton area. Both towns are popular for different reasons and there is plenty of housing in the area. There is some limited accommodation on the Lewes site (Caburn House) but the College does not provide halls of residence. Students will need to arrange accommodation themselves and the following information may be helpful.

There are several specialist letting agencies in Eastbourne, Brighton and Hastings but a number are not regulated. Some are registered with professional bodies such as the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) and the National Lettings Scheme (NALS).
