    Hi there. Currently havn't a clue where or how I am supposed to apply for halls. I'm not even sure if 2012 students can apply now. I'm a bit confused. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    I hope so, I keep checking the Brighton university website to check to see if the online application is up and running yet, but doesn't seem like it. I just don't want it to become a last minute thing where I don't get accommodation - DREAD THE THOUGHT D:

    What course are you going to study?

    If your at moulsecoombe campus go for Phoenix Halls of Residence. If your at Falmer Campus go for Paddock Field or Great Wilkins.

    Phoenix Halls are closest to town but Falmer halls are furthest away, but most conveniant if you study there. Buses every like 15 mins to town until like 4am

    I've emailed them and the emails are supposed to be going out from the 10th of April onwards. I dont think we should worry too much. If you are really concerned send the accommmodation office your details (name DOB and UCAS NO#) for more information.

    Just to let you guys know I'm studying and possilby living at falmer anyone else moving to falmer?

    I called them up last week about it, and they said emails or letters should be coming through in the next couple of weeks.

    Received my accommodation application email today, really hoping I get into Paddock Field as the 50 week accommodation at Great Wilkins is so much more expensive and I'll probably be home for holidays anyway! x

    I think we have to if applying for accommodation in Brighton. I'm definitely putting Paddock Field first and then probably ones at Varley for the other three or maybe I might put Phoenix Brewery as one. What about you?

    What are people putting where it says would you like to live with international students/mature students? x

    I think it means would you MIND living with international/mature students so I just put yes, because it can't mean do you want to ONLY live with them x

    Yea I've only put 4 down on my application. Paddock Field being my first, but I'm going non-catered. It works out at about £1000 cheaper.
