    I don't know much about how accommodation is like, but I'll tell you how I chose accommodation. First of all I looked at all residences available, and then decided what i definitely wanted the hall of residence to have. You might prefer en suite facilities or low cost. After seeing pictures of the rooms and getting an overall idea I read what people had to say about the halls on the student room. I ended up choosing swanborough, northfield and Lewis phase two because I really didn't want to share a bathroom, you might have different priorities though

    Hello

    I have firmed Sussex for biomedical science, I hold a conditional offer, AAB.
    I have already applied for accommodation, my choices are swanborough, northfield and Lewis court in this order.

    Do you know if and when we receive a welcome pack?

    And I'm worried about making friends too, I don't know anyone who is going to Sussex :/

    Haha I guess that starting university is the time to get more confident with talking to people. It kind of makes me feel better knowing that many people will be in the same situation as me, not that it's a pleasant feeling to have, it will just make the friend-making process easier

    Same accommodation as you, in different order. I am almost certain you can get a room in northfield, there are more than 900 rooms
