Just wondering if anyone's got anything back from Brighton about where their living next year or is it too early to have heard?

I think people only hear back in mid-late August, when places have been confirmed.

I emailed them to find out when offers for halls were made and they said mid-August, which for me is great because I haven't sorted the £540 deposit yet

Woah, forgot about the deposit! Now I've got to find that kind of money too!

I'm glad you guys mentioned this, I was totally unaware there would be a £540 deposit :/. After looking into it, of course you're right.

Talk about added pressure.

Yep, it's a huge deposit compared to other uni's, my sisters Uni only wanted £120!

Hi everyone,

You will hear back about accommodation by mid-August, although they usually contact those unlucky few who didn't get a place first (to make it easier for them to find a house).

With regards to 'deposits', we don't take a deposit from you. The payment you've heard about is a first installment of rent, equivalent to slightly more than a month. You will then have a schedule of payments for the rest of the year, unless you decide to pay your accommodation in full.

I hope this helps.

Thanks Brighton Uni! Nice to have a representitive on here! I can confirm the unlucky ones hear earlier! I heard today that I was allocated my second choice but it was wrongly advertised as self-catered instead of catered by both the university website and the application system which was pretty annoying - although Woodland and Downland halls do look very nice! I was looking forward to the independence but then, I can still cook for myself on weekends and stuff and be lazy in the week when I'm bogged down with exams and work!

Just a question, UoB, how do catered halls work in Brighton with regards to times and everything?

So we should all start to hear if we have or have not got our first choice accommodation offers around now? If that is the case of course.

I think you'll hear around now if you haven't got any accomodation. They said that I received the email because I was allocated to my (second) choice but it was wrong in its description, so we could look for private accomodation if we wanted to. I came to terms to it pretty quickly though! The rooms look amazing!

Hi Josh,

The standard catering times are 7.30-9.30 in the morning and 5.30-7.30 in the evening, although these do sometimes change slightly from year to year. If for any reason you, or anyone else, has a course which does not allow you to attend during those hours, it can sometimes be arranged for food to be kept behind for you. Catering is only Monday to Friday during term time though.

For anyone waiting to hear back from the Accommodation Office, you'll have to be patient for a little while longer, but they will get round to you (whether successful or unsuccessful).

Hey Joshalos,

I received an email saying I got into Woodland & Downland as well, although it was my first choice. What course will you be studying at Brighton?

Oh and Brighton Uni, any idea what time students usually get to move in?

That's cool, how are you feeling about it being catered instead of self catered now though? And I'll be doing biomedical sciences, you?

I don't mind too much, the only reason most of my choices were self catered was for the experience of being more individual. I think it will be nice to have some meals made for me, as the second year we'll be out of halls and making everything ourselves.

I'll be studying Computer Science (Games).

I wanted the independence too but justified it by the fact that we still have to make lunch and cook all our weekend meals anyway. Being catered for in the week will be a godsend when we're tired and bogged down with work! Just hope I live with some nice, unique people!
