Which Sussex University accommodation is the most social?Watch
I would say park houses but again it really does depend on who you live with. There are people who I know who live in east slope and their flat isn’t particularly sociable, whereas I currently live in northfield and all my flatmates are really great friends and we’re also friends with a lot of people in our block. There isn’t a particularly ‘antisocial’ place to live but park houses share between 12 so I’d say there’s a higher chance of them being sociable.
I applied for mixed sex and ended up with 2 boys and 3 other girls. Sorry I don’t understand what you mean by quiet housing but noise isn’t really an issue in northfield. It’s a pretty quiet place and obviously it depends on the type of people you live with but I haven’t had any issues
RIP East Slope
- I live in Brighthelm currently. The rooms are huge, the house atmosphere is really chill and if you get a good flat you can have a really nice time. It's very dated, so beware of **** breaking. You will save hundreds having a washing machine and dryer in your house. If you don't end up Brighthelm, make friends with someone who is so you can use their machine (a wash and a dry in the laundromat is 4.50 a go!!!!). There are occasional house parties, nothing too hectic, if you're up the hill though it can be a bit of a trek.
- Northfield is really nice, but very far away from everything. The block parties are hilarious when they happen. Facilities are super nice and new, walk into rest of campus can be quite long.
-Lewes Court is also nice, slightly older than Northfield but still modern. In between Northfield and Brighthelm. Lots of good parties, really nice social atmosphere, nice rooms, nice kitchens and living areas. Where I would have liked to live probably.
-Park Village is depressing. No communal area bar the kitchens. Can be very divided, paper thin walls, old worn out place, bugs occasionally, i'd avoid unless you're trying to save money. For the budget option, it's not that bad.
-Swanborough is really central, really friendly people and good atmosphere.
