Using Student Pad is the most direct way to advertise your property to students at the University of Sussex who are searching for private sector accommodation within the Brighton, Hove, and Lewes area. Sussex Student Pad provides students with a website to search for high quality student accommodation that has been fully inspected by a University Housing Officer and complies with our Code of Standards. We ask that all landlords read our Code of Standards before accessing the site and ensure that your property meets the required standard for advertising. The code of standards lays out our requirements for repairs and maintenance, health and safety, certification, equality of opportunity, security, deposits, and a complaints process. Once you have registered, we will be in touch with you to organise an inspection of your property.

Sussex Student Pad uses intuitive and user-friendly software, allowing you to advertise your properties with ease. The website includes embedded video guidance to help guide you in creating and maintaining your property adverts.
If you have them, please also upload photographs of the inside of your property in a clean and tidy condition. The more photographs, the more attractive your property will be to students. Ensure you give as many useful details about the property as possible – ie does it have a tumble dryer? Is there bicycle storage? Is it in a quiet street? Is it near to useful shops, bus stops or amenities?
Landlords whose properties meet the requirements set out in our Code of Standards can advertise their properties on Sussex Student Pad free of charge to Sussex students. This is subject to an initial inspection upon signing up, and property inspections every three years thereafter. Landlords will also have to make sure their certification is kept up to date, as per the Code of Standards.
Properties that have more than three people from separate households living in them and are over 2 floors, will need a HMO license. Properties with residents from 5 different households will always need a license. There is more information about HMO licensing within Brighton & Hove here.
