The university has unveiled new plans for a student village on its Falmer campus which will triple the amount of student housing and accommodate an additional 2,100 students.
The plans are the first stage of a £500m programme of investment to modernise the campus which the university estimates will generate 2,400 new jobs.
The plans unveiled are part of the university’s campus masterplan which was successfully taken to appeal last year after Brighton & Hove City Council initially rejected the proposal.
If these new plans are granted planning permission, work could begin in January next year with the first phase ready for the start of the 2018/19 academic year and with all work completed by 2020.
