    According to the advisers I spoke with there is no specific accommodation for post-grad/mature students, though they try to put them together if they can, usually off-campus. I've requested off-campus accommodation and to be put with mature students if I possible, and I am still awaiting reply.

    Sussex have provided an update:
    I just wanted to update you as quickly as we could. We have been working very hard to process clearing housing applicants and have now allocated accommodation to the first 250 clearing applicants who applied as part of the University’s published commitment to provide housing for 250 clearing applicants. We are working hard to allocate accommodation to additional applicants above the 250 but we cannot guarantee to offer accommodation in view of demand.We will keep you posted as availability occurs and will write back to you early next week an update.
    They have also told me over the phone they hope to allocate additional applicants by the end of Monday, and that in the first few weeks of term additional places usually open up if you live close enough to travel initially.

    I went through clearing for Economics and Management and still haven't heard back from Sussex housing services all now. Anyone else on the same boat and still not got an accommodation? Theres actually loads of property for cheap still available, only thing is it needs the whole group from at least 4-6 to book the accommodation together... worst comes to worst that I still don't hear back from the housing services within 5 days. Would anyone be interested in sharing with me if they still also haven't got accomodation?

    1. Hey

      I've got an offer to do anthropology and for me it's between East Slope and Swanborough.

      I know they are two extremes haha I really like the idea of the party atmosphere at East Slope but it worries me that it'll be just a bit too grotty as I've heard rumours that mould grows in the showers etc.

      Swanborough is in a good location for my buildings and it looks really nice but I'm worried because its en-suite it'll be a little too quiet and also I've heard it is just full of snobby people. I'm fairly liberal but I do come from a rather privileged background therefore I'm used to snobby people haha but I'd rather be with more forward thinking people. ( heard en-suite buildings tend to be less social for some reason.)

      Sorry if these stereotypes are not applied to the accommodation, its just what I've heard.
