This paper examines the rising concern about the negative impacts of students on ‘host communities’ through the example of a purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) in Brighton. It shows that the location of this development in a densely populated neighbourhood has engendered adverse student/community relations, conflict, feelings of dispossession and displacement of established local residents. It is asserted that future developments of PBSA should be mindful of these issues and their implications for questions of community cohesion, quality-of-life and belonging in established residential communities
