    So I've made Sussex my firm choice but now I'm struggling to know which accommodation to choose.
    I think it's between Brighthelm, Northfield and Park Houses.
    Can someone please advice on which they think are best?

    I like the fact that Northfield has ensuite rooms, however is it true that it is less social/ full of snobs? While I come from a relatively privileged background I didn't go to private school or anything, I don't want to be suck with people that I can't relate with.

    I like the sound of Park Houses, social but not as grotty as East Slope, plus ya get a sink. How many bathrooms are there between how many people? And are they gendered? People that have lived here do you find yourself waiting to use the bathroom a lot/ or is it often left in a grim state?

    And then Brighthelm, same questions. How many bathrooms etc etc. Isn't Brighthelm only 5 people? Is this too small? it sounds small


    sorry 4 overload of questions lol

    room looks a good size. So one place I forgot about: Park village. What's the difference between Park houses and Park Village?

    Park Village is absolutely vile (IMO) when i went to visit it stunk of week old cooking and stairs were falling apart. Was incredibly cramped and i couldn't wait to get out and were there there for a max of 5 minutes.
    :zomg:

    That bedside table looks like it's actually from the desk. You get a lamp and a bed but no bedding

    Park Houses Yes.
    Park Village No!!!
    East Slope Ugh
    Lewes Court Phase 1 (not en suite, not much more per week than Park Houses, smaller rooms, but more modern)
