Halls of residence are provided by both the University of Brighton and the University of Sussex, and BSMS students are allocated evenly between the two universities.
As a first-year medical student, you will be guaranteed accommodation at Falmer, where the medical school is based. However, you must make BSMS your first choice when confirming places with UCAS, and submit your application for university residences by the deadline in June/July 2019.
At the University of Brighton, you will normally be placed in Paddock Field residences, where all rooms are en suite. Self-catered and catered options are available, and there is free off-peak gym membership. For more information click here.
At the University of Sussex, you will normally be placed in Lewes Court residences, where you can choose an en suite room or shared bathroom. For more information click here.
Whichever residence you live in, at Falmer you will be part of a lively, stimulating and cosmopolitan student community, living alongside people from all over the world who are studying a wide range of subjects. Most accommodation is in single study bedrooms, and there are a few shared rooms and family flats (University of Sussex only), as well as housing designed for students with disabilities. All halls have internet access and contents insurance.
You should apply for halls via the University of Brighton Accommodation Office, whichever campus you prefer. They will send you information on how to apply during the academic year before you arrive at BSMS, including all relevant deadlines. The office can also help you find accommodation off-campus, if you would prefer.

In years 3, 4 and 5, hospital accommodation is provided for on-call duties, where required.
During the fifth year of study, you will undertake attachments at different regional hospitals. Accommodation is provided at those centres not easily reached from your Brighton base.
