The Beginning

SEASALT (South EAst Students Autonomously Living Together) was founded in spring 2018 to create affordable, high quality housing for students run by students.

A core working group was formed made up of students from both the University of Brighton and the University of Sussex. Members come from a variety of  different courses including International Development, Law, Neuroscience and Cyber Security.
