We Are Closing in January 2023

USSU Statement on the Closure of Sussex Student Lettings Agency

After nearly 11 years running an ethical and student focused Lettings Agency, we have made the difficult decision to close the service. This is primarily due to the changes in the lettings industry, staffing challenges, and the current financial climate which has made it no longer viable for the Union to run its own agency. As with everything we do at the University of Sussex Students’ Union, it was run with student needs at the forefront and we are proud that we could provide this service for so many. It is with a heavy heart that we have to close the Lettings Agency, it is not a decision that has been taken lightly, but we feel this is the best way forward for us as an organisation. Whilst we will be closing the Lettings Agency, we will be expanding our Advice Service Team so that housing advice and advocacy will become far larger as part of the support we offer students. Further information regarding this will be coming soon on the main Students Union Website.

Whilst we will be moving away from providing a Lettings service, ensuring that all students have affordable, safe and accessible housing remains a priority for the Union. We know that many students are facing terrible difficulties with housing at the moment and the Cost of Living Crisis is disproportionately affecting young people.The Union fully acknowledges and understands the anxiety a lack of affordable and decent housing in Brighton is causing students.
