'Our vision is of a student led initiative for affordable housing, democratic living and long term sustainability'
Founded in 2018, we are a student housing co-operative based in Brighton. As a housing co-operative, property is owned and managed by its residents, putting an end to unresponsive landlords, poor quality housing and spiraling rents. We have a wide variety of interests but principally, we focus on:
We have raised over £336,000 to buy our first house through a share offer with Brighton and Hove Community Land Trust (BHCLT). We hope to move our first students in by September 2021 so if you are interested in living or volunteering with us then please see our get involved/live with us page! Overall, we are working towards creating the first Student housing co-operative in the South East.
31/05/2021 we’re now taking applicants for tenants in the 2021/2022 academic year!
Having completed our share offer, we now have an offer on our first house. This means that we are looking to move in students for the 2021/2022 academic year ad we are currently taking applications.
31/12/2020 – Share offer complete, £336,350 raised. 129% of our minimum goal!
That’s it! Our share offer is now closed but we’ve raised a total of £336,350 which is well above our minimum target. What this means is that we’ll be able to look at purchasing a bigger house, raising more revenue and funding more local, suitable projects across Brighton and Hove. we can’t thank everyone enough for their support and we’re over the moon to not only have reached our target but smashed it by a large margin! Once again thank you for your continued support and don’t forget to keep following us because we’ve got some exciting plans for 2021.
