Brighton & Hove is a popular place to live and has lots of characterful neighbourhoods

We've put together information about the main residential zones of Brighton & Hove, including travel times and routes to key locations. Just click on the pin in our map below to find out more about each area.

The pins show you the typical information for broad areas of the city. We haven't included boundaries as they are hard to define so you can use pins near the area(s) you're interested in to gauge what they are like and how long it takes to get to key places.

We've added train stations and major supermarkets (though there are lots of other places to buy food including independent shops) to help you make an informed decision about the location you are considering.

You can zoom in on the map to see details of bus stops or take a look at www.buses.co.uk for details of bus journeys. The 25 is the most common route between Brighton and the University.

You can click on features in the map below or open the map in a new window to search for particular places.

The University's Housing Office have information about finding somewhere to live and is the best place to start looking for your options.

If you want someone to check over your housing contract for you please ask in Students' Union Advice Team or the University housing office.
