The Location

The University of Brighton's campus right in the city, Phoenix is just moments from Brighton city centre, a short distance to the beach and has great links to City, Moulsecoomb and Falmer campus. 

The Laundry

The onsite laundry makes those very necessary jobs just that little bit easier.

The Reception

The hub for all your support, pop-in here to ask questions and report maintenance requests. You can also do that here.

Our Residential Life team at Phoenix are here to support you during your time with us, and to create a friendly positive and inclusive environment for you to live in. We know that it may be easier to talk to a fellow student than a member of staff, so each flat is assigned an upper-year Student Residential Advisor (SRA), who will live and work in the accommodation and check in with you regularly throughout the year to say hello. Flat and individual meetings will take place virtually using Microsoft Teams. 

The SRAs organise and deliver social events where there’s an opportunity for you to build genuine friendships and have fun. We hope that you will experience a real sense of belonging and that you will quickly feel at home. 

You can contact an SRA about any concerns you might have, no matter how big or small. It could be a general question about university, or perhaps a flatmate dispute. You might be concerned about someone you live with, or maybe you are feeling homesick and just want someone to talk to. If an SRA is unable to help you, they will know someone who can. 

A guide to residential life will be waiting in your room when you arrive.
