Student accommodation at Bellerbys Brighton
Bellerbys Brighton is more than just a place of learning – it's also your home away from home. Bellerbys’ modern accommodation gives you somewhere to live where you can feel safe and secure, so you can concentrate on your studies. Voyager House Residence is located next to the College – just a few minutes' walk from your classes and right in the centre of Brighton. The railway station is only seconds away from campus, with the shops only a 20 minute walk away, and just 25 minutes to the sea front.
Studying abroad is a new experience, and the best way to experience student life is with other students. You'll be a part of a strong and friendly community of likeminded international students, so you can make the most out of your time with us. You'll meet people studying different programmes, sharing interests outside of your studies. There are many activities available in the Residence to help you get to know one another. When local restrictions are present, the campus is in a bubble – meaning all boarding students are able to socialise together to make new friends in person.
You will have the help of your Residence Supervisor – a friendly face to approach with any queries or problems you may have.

We do, from time to time, accept over 18s in our residence and this will be on a case by case basis. You have the choice of 370 single rooms with an en-suite bathroom, or a shared twin room.

Arranging your own accommodation privately
If you are booking your own accommodation privately it is important that you let us know where you are staying.
Look out for fraud
Scammers may specifically target international students so it is important to be able to recognise common signs of fraudulent activity and know what to do if you come across it. Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any concerns about fraudulent activity when dealing with a private accommodation provider so that we can help to protect you and other international students in case they are targeted in the same way.

"Bellerbys staff are very friendly. In my opinion, the best thing at Bellerbys which I couldn't find in anywhere else is the student service . I don't feel homesick when I am with the welfare team because they take care of me and send me to GP when I am not well.''
