hey,
I'll be studying graphic design at the uni of brighton this september and I just found out I didn't get into halls. I'm scared I'll miss out on something even though there's nothing I can really do about it... what are your opinions ? Can it be just as fun in a unihome or in private rental ?

Hey there, I applied for halls too, but didn't get in, I'm doing reserved rooms like a shared house basically, you should consider it. I'll be studying 3D design and craft in September there.

Hi, I'm going to Grand Parade September. I applied for halls too, but didn't get in. Do you have any contacts for house shares etc? The uni ones have massive deposits..

How did you find out about the shared houses?
They sent me an email explaining I didn't get into halls, but I can get a place for a reserved room that is basically like a shared house with other Brighton students. What are you planning to do?*

Hi, same thing happened with me. I applied for halls and they have offered a house share close to the Phoenix Brewery, but the contract is so long being 48 weeks, which I dont want. I kinda want to find another cheaper place but need to find other students. Any ideas?

Hi Guys,

I find that spareroom.com isn't too bad when looking for rooms! However i'm going to be in the Eastbourne campus so probably considerably cheaper But its worth a look if any thing

Don't panic! Private rented housing is just as fun as halls of residence - in fact some people even prefer it!
There is an official Brighton Students' Union house hunting group on Facebook, just head to Facebook.com/brightonsufreshers2016 and all the groups will be posted on there.

Don't be fooled into copycat or imitation groups/ pages!
