    Hi Sophia

    It's hard to advise you on where is best because different people want different things from accommodation. For example, if you'd fancy being close to town Phoenix is your best bet, but if you want a catered package, you'd need to look at Varley and Moulsecoomb.

    You can find out info on all of our halls on our website, click on the name of each site and it will bring up detailed info on each hall & block.

    I hope this helps, but please get in touch with us if need any more info

    I'm going to be studying Psychology. I've already applied for the halls even though I don't have a clue how it works. Does anyone here know what Wilkins, Falmer, Paddock and Phoenix is? Is it the halls? I've already applied for these places but I don't know if they're halls or not. If anyone could help I'd be grateful 😊

    Hi

    If you applied for accommodation online, you should have been able to look at lots of information about each hall here

    The halls are all listed with information about price and contract length, you can click the links and find full information about each block, with photographic tours of rooms, kitchens and common spaces.

    But have I actually applied for the halls? Is the list I've applied for (Phoenix, Falmer etc) all halls that I've applied for?

    No they are not all halls.

    Falmer is the name of a campus, on that campus we have both Paddock Field Halls and Great Wilkins Halls.

    The other names are of halls.

    Did you do an online application? If you did then you applied for halls.

    So far I have applied for
    Preferences 1 Falmer: Great Wilkins Single En SuiteSelf Catered Preferences 2 Falmer: Paddock Field Single En SuiteSelf CateredPreferences 3 Phoenix: Phoenix Single En SuiteSelf CateredPreferences 4 Varley: Woodland/Downland Lodge Single En Suite Catered

    I'm confused because I don't know what this means. I'm hoping to get into the halls but are the choices I've entered actual halls?

    Yes, you are using the accommodation application portal, so your only options are halls or "Unihomes", which is only one option and clearly marked as Unihomes. All of the things you have listed there are halls.

    e.g.
    1 - Falmer (this is the location of the hall) Great Wilkins (This is the name of the hall) Single (a single room) En-suite (Room has it's own shower room) Self Catered (You are not buying a food package)
