University of Sussex AccommodationWatch
I am thinking of firming my choice to study at the University of Sussex and am looking at on-campus accommodation. I really don't like the idea of sharing with 12 others and would prefer one of the halls with 5-6 students in. How likely is it that you receive your first choice of accommodation and how do they allocate it? Thanks!
So, in terms of the actual application procedure, you would normally list about 6 accommodation choices, in order of preference. If you do not want to live with more than 6 people, then selecting just the accommodation types that fit that criteria, would probably be the best option. There are at least 6 different accommodation choices, where the number of people per flat does not exceed 6 people. Here is a link to the Sussex housing options web-page: https://www.sussex.ac.uk/study/accommodation/on-campus. It gives you information about how many people you can expect to live with. Generally if you are told that accommodation has flats of 6-8 people, it is very rare you would have 7 flat mates. Most flats will have the lower number of 6 people.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions
