I loved starting in halls for my first year of university. We were catered so got breakfast and an evening meal Monday to Friday during term time. Also we got a cleaner twice a week to clean the kitchen and living room. It is in the perfect place for just rolling out of bed and walking over to lectures. One downsaid would be not having a shop that’s close. The SU shop I think is quite expensive and the walk over to Sussex campus for the coop is okay but again it can be quite expensive in there. However there is a train station pretty much on campus which is only a 9 minute train into Brighton. One issue with that is youbthen have to carry all your shopping back and take it on the train. Overall though I loved being at Paddock Field.

The Fat I lived in was a catered one. Having breakfast and an evening meal each day was a nice middle ground between being at home and living away. Also we had a cleaner twice a week which was good as it is rather difficult to get the people you live with to clean sometimes. In terms of location it is very good for being close to the university and that there is a train station no more than a 10 minute walk away. One downside is to do any shopping you have to get a train or bus into Brighton and walk to a supermarket then carry all your shopping home. There is a co-op in Sussex campus but I found that quite expensive as is the SU shop on campus. Despite having a single room the room had enough space including a desk, chair, shelves and a notice board. We also got draws and a wardrobe. My room had an ensuite bathroom which I had never been bothered by before but I actually quite liked having my own bathroom. Overall I loved living in halls and would probably have chosen to spend my 3 years there had I had the choice.

Not the best location for going out as you still need to trek into town but for the campus and my classes it is ideal! 5 min walk to class every moning is the best. Also the security on sight take Care of stuff as quickly as possible making it a lot mor stress free.

The facilities were good, good bus communication. Also good insulation and good food overall. The matress wasnt too good but beareble.

Was okay, there were not many opportunities to meet people from other flats within Paddock Fields, and it was a train ride away from town. However, the rooms were nice and having food provided to us was a very useful thing.

The location in terms of my campus is amazing as it's a short walk away however, the trek into town can be annoying. Although, it does prove for a good social life being surrounded around your peers and they do offer a free bus during term times.

There is not much to do in the local area, but transport into town is easy. Rooms are decently sized, but ensuite could be a little larger

I really liked halls, made a lot of friends and as we were catered we all bonded over meals and stuff, living with people kind of forced you to make friends which really helped with being in the new situation, everyone was in the same boat. Cleaning was great and although the location was good for classes it wasn't so great for shopping or going out, but we had buses.

the location was great, close enought to town with great transport links. Room was of a good size with enough storage space and en suite. It was catered halls which actually was really good for the money, with a 3 course breakfast and dinner Monday to Friday. A downside to the uni was the lack of social areas like common rooms ext, the student bar was small and far from anything In town and the student shop did not have a license for alcohol

Room a good size, with own bathroom! The kitchen is also a good size but could definitely do with my fridge space as we share two small fridges between 8 people. Location on campus and so ideal for socialising with coursemates - and the bus to Brighton comes right onto campus too which runs til the morning (although also so close to the train station which is much quicker).

Lived here for 1st year and loved it! Great atmosphere and maintenance was good. The showers did get a bit mouldy but generally great halls!

Location - Next to well connected train and bus station. However, miles away from nearest supermarket and even further away from brighton town centre. Social experience - Halls have approx 8 people on each floor. Get to know everyone in your flat and surroundings. very sociable Social areas - Pretty dire. Tiny "students union" they called the HIVE where they tried to put on social events like pizza evenings and quizzes. Room - Pretty basic. Bed was tiny not even a single, radiator would only stay on from 30 mins. Otherwise very solid. Nice views, halls were cleaned, good shower and cooking areas. No complaints about internet. Value for money - v.poor in comparison to other university halls of the same price. paid almost £140 a week for not alot. The whole of paddock fields is needing modernisation. Having said that, there is a great gym on campus and great sport facilities.

I love the location as it is right on the falmer campus where all my lectures are, and I have made most of my friends through my halls. My room is great apart from the ugly colour of the carpet and curtains. Having an ensuite is great, so I love it overall!
