SEASALT is a group of students from the University of Sussex and the University of Brighton working to set up a student housing co-operative in Brighton. We are a student-led initiative for affordable housing, democratic living and long-term sustainability.
SEASALT stands for South EAst Students Autonomously Living Together.
A housing co-op is a property owned, run and managed by its residents! Yes, students. Sounds like a dream? It is happening across the UK with the first student housing co-op in Birmingham established in 2014, Sheffield housing co-operative and Edinburgh student housing co-op has 106 beds. There is now a National Body, Student Co-op Homes, set up in partnership with Co-ops UK to grow the sector.
Join the working group to be part of this! We currently don’t have a property but are working towards being able to move into one as soon as we can.
