Halls of residenceWatch
So can anyone recommend the best halls of residence at the university of sussex in terms of value for money and the overall social experience? I want to be with people who are like me and not be stuck in a quiet halls
any advice would be greatly appreciated
I'd say avoid the ensuite accommodation, i've heard they are filled with internationals who are not that social, plus they are expensive unless you are a first generation scholar
just to address the international issue, there's 1 person in my block who's international and they're still very sociable. also, the block opposite me don't have very many internationals either. i'd say the hub of internationals would be in swanborough, brighthelm or even park village/east slope.
East Slope most social, cheapest, most 'fun', but also the worst living conditions, if you are not fussy about that its probably the best experience.
Northfield is probably the second most social, but also ensuite and very expensive. Worth it if you can afford it though
Avoid stammer court in my opinion, its virtually off campus and is not very social at all.
Swanborough is good, but is more expensive and I would consider Northfield nicer and more social
Park village cheap, not very social at all if you have to go for one of the cheaper ones I would opt for East slope
Brighthelm is very nice, middle price range (not ensuite), but also extremely hard to get into, they have their own washing machines and is more like sharing a house. Very nice
