    So there have been a rash of people posting on the Brighton house-hunting facebook page, saying they've been turned down from halls for this year.

    It's starting to worry me, I have an unconditional offer which I have accepted. and applied a couple days before the deadline (14/07/16 I think) for halls. and still nothing!! Anyone else in a similar boat?

    Hey there, I didn't get into halls either, I'm doing reserved rooms instead like a shared house basically, you should consider it, you don't have to house hunt, it's all done for you.

    Sounds interesting, is it kind of like unihomes?

    And if I may ask, if you applied to brighton halls or a different uni? and if so, when did you finish your application?

    I applied to Brighton halls, I applied for halls a while ago like 2 months ago, because I had an unconditional offer for my course *

    I thought about house hunting, but reserved rooms is lot easier and less hassle, I'd rather not being worrying about not having somewhere to live while studying.*

    Ah thanks for the info

    Starting to get the impression that although halls aren't first-come-first-serve, the responses to those with unconditional offers might be

    Yeah I'm quite anxious about the same. A commute in from london wouldn't be too difficult, but I'd definitely be missing out on alot of freshers week, which would suck

    I'm from London too, but it'll be easier to live there for like social events/freshens, meeting people etc. Hey fellow brightonian!

    Yeah totally. And hey nice to meet you! My name's Kyran. That sounds awesome, I love making things, but I'm terrible with my hands. Hence as a happy middle ground I'll be doing computer science this year

    Will you be house hunting then? It's a shame Brighton doesn't have a lot of space for halls

    Ideally I'd like to be in halls, like you said house-hunting can be a bit arduous. But if it doesn't work out I guess I will try and find my own place, there still seems to be daily posts to the official brighton house-hunting page, and quite a few nice places there for not-too-much, so here's to hoping

    To my understanding there is. Most of the places are only announced in august after everyone has gotten results. The exception being us lucky people with unconditional offers
