Hi,
I was wondering if anyone could tell me what it’s like for a first year to not live in student accommodation such as freshers week, social life.
Background: Brighton would be my first choice I love the uni and the course and have had offers back from there. However due to living close I’m not eligible for accommodation. I live around 30/40 mins away by train. I worried I’ll miss out on the social aspects of uni by living at home in a different town or having to private rent in Brighton.
Any help will be much appreciated.
Thanks

Hi!

Make sure you contact the accommodation office to let us know you would like halls if they become available. Just because you are not covered by the halls guarantee does not mean you definitely can't have halls. It just means you aren't guaranteed and so can't apply online. Email [email protected] to let us know you want halls if they are available. Every student who got in touch with your circumstances was housed within the first few weeks of term this year.
