FAQs about student accommodation in Hove

Is Hove a student area?

Just a short commute away from the University of Brighton, Hove student houses are popular. The area attracts a lot of students every year.

Where is Hove?

Hove is located along the coast to the west of the city centre.

Is Hove a nice place to live?

Hove is a quiet but picturesque area. A good choice for those who prefer to live away from the buzzing student areas, Hove still benefits from a lot of restaurants, pubs, and shops as well as extremely convenient transport links.

Is Hove safe?

How far is Hove from London?

It takes just over an hour on the train to get to London from student accommodation in Hove.

Is Hove affordable for students?

Brighton is one of the more expensive cities for students to live in, so you may have to budget carefully when renting student houses in Hove.

Are bills included in the cost?

Many student houses in Hove are now advertised with bills included in the price. Where this is the case, your rental price could include electricity, gas, internet, TV licence and water bills and this is clearly stated on the listing. Properties without bills included are also available, giving you the flexibility to choose your own energy and water suppliers and internet service provider.

Do I need to pay a deposit?

It is normal for property managers to require you to pay a security deposit at the time of booking or before you move in. Where a deposit is required and you are signing a tenancy agreement, your property manager must protect your deposit in a legally recognised tenancy deposit scheme. As long as you look after the property and have no deductions for damage or unpaid rent, your deposit will be returned to you after your tenancy agreement ends. Whilst tenancy deposits are legally capped at five weeks' rent per person, it is more common for student deposits to be in the lower £100-250 range.

How long does a tenancy agreement last for?

The majority of student accommodation in Hove can be rented for fixed contract lengths. For purpose built student accommodation, 43 and 51-week fixed-term contracts are the most common. For shared houses, 52-week contracts are the most common and generally start in July to September.

Do you offer student accommodation for short-term stays?

Short-term student rentals in Hove are becoming more popular every year. As a result, property managers are increasingly offering shorter tenancy lengths, whether for the summer period or for individual semesters and terms. This is more common in the purpose-built student accommodation sector than in shared student rental houses across Brighton.
