Hi everyone, I've been placed into off-campus housing (Kings Road on Brighton seafront) however I desperately don't want to live off-campus as the main reason I applied for Sussex was because it was a campus uni with on-site accommodation. Also, my only friend is staying on-campus (East Slope) and would feel very lonely off-campus.
Is there anyone going to Sussex who has been allocated a room on-campus who would prefer to stay on Brighton seafront and would like to swap?

Hello Lucykitto,

I've been placed to East Slope and I would prefer to stay in King's road campus.
I am happy to swap with you. What should we do for swapping room? Should we contact the uni accommodation office for that? Thanks!

Hello, if you want to swap rooms within University-managed accommodation, you'll need to complete a swap form at the Housing Office. The option to swap rooms will begin at the start of autumn term (at least a week after you have moved in, to give you a chance to get to know your flat mates, etc., and hence make a more informed decision about swapping). The fee for room swaps is 26 pounds per person, and you are responsible for finding a person willing to swap with you. You can use the online swap list search open to Sussex University Students on Sussex Direct Website to find someone willing to swap with you. You will receive those login details at the start of the term.

Both persons need to sign the agreement, and pay the room swap fee, and any outstanding fee for their previous housing agreement for the duration of time spent in that accommodation. I hope this gives you some clarification on the matter.

Best Wishes,
