Student Accommodation Is Broken.
Students in Brighton are often forced to pay high rents for low quality housing. Usually these are family homes converted by landlords to make more money.
That’s why we want to convert a bed & breakfast in Kemptown into the first Student Housing Co-operative in the South East. Providing affordable rents, high quality rooms and moving students out of much needed family homes.

Who Are We?
We are a group of students from the University of Sussex and the University of Brighton. Our vision is of a student led initiative for affordable housing, democratic living and long term sustainability.
What Is A Housing Co-operative?
“Hearing more about SEASALT is so inspiring. They are leading the way tackling a really huge problem of exorbitant rents, unresponsive landlords and poor quality student housing at the source. I am really proud that the first student led housing cooperative in the South East will be in Brighton. I hope its profile will increase so more students take the initiative to set up housing co-operatives around the country.”
