Stayed here after moving out of paddock fields (same campus) as I had a couple problems. I couldn’t fault any of the staff here, maintenance corrections were made within 24 hours, day team were so welcoming and the security staff on out of hours couldn’t be faulted. Sad to have to leave to move somewhere else st the end of the year and would recommend to anyone that would want to have the halls experience at university.

Matt Clinick and the members of his team are just a wonderful and humane group. They make the students comfortable and respond to issues in a timely manner. Thank you so much guys!

Absolutely awful experience living here. With paper thin walls, and flooding bathrooms, dirty kitchens and bedrooms. Whatever you do, save your money! Don’t go here!

Really great place to live, on campus so you can roll out of bed and still be on time for lectures. Good social crowd with nice outdoor areas and good social space in reception with a pool table. The staff are massively helpful be that with moving in and out, fixing any issues, or just up for a chat if there is a problem. Overall great place to live

Absolute scam! SAVE YOUR MONEY AND FIND SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!!! I have lived here for my university experience and am so wholeheartedly disappointed in the experience and would go as far to say that it has actually ruined my university experience with the ongoing knock on effects occurring. Complaints that were not easy fixes were still logged as 'fixed' and all they would say is "someone needs to come out to look at it" (a contractor) and they never ever came! So the accommodation team doesn't believe me when I say it was flooding! We went the whole winter WITHOUT ANY HEAT in our hallway!!! My BATHROOM FLOODED EVERY DAY without fail! Honestly grab some arm bands because once you step into your bathroom you're in a paddling pool which constantly spills into the bedroom leaving a wet and smelly carpet for days... Many many other students living here have also expressed their stress in the bathrooms flooding frequently as well.

By Justin On 16th June 21 verified Verified student

As a mature student I was concerned who I might be sharing with but I was put with other, older students. I was very pleasantly surprised by the room as I had no idea what to expect. The bed was decent and a good size, the wardrobe a double. There’s a long bench/desk and 2 sets of drawers. I was particularly pleased to have the en-suite shower room and toilet. It was a light clean room with enough space. The kitchen was shared with the other 5 tenants and all cupboard spaces and fridge and freezer are designated. There was enough room to eat in the kitchen and spare seats for lounging. Kettle, microwave and toaster were also supplied. The best bit was the 24 hour reception with security patrolling at night. There was always someone you could get hold of and all post is delivered there too. I enjoyed hanging out in the reception area where free tea and coffee was provided. It was a good place to meet people. Having a laundry in the reception building was excellent.

Is a nice space, with access to a free gym a few minutes away. The campus is beautiful, and there are frequent buses and train links right into the center of town (Brighton). There isnt much in the way of food at the student shop, so you need to go into town for that stuff, or order it in. So long as you are okay with that then its great! The only real issue seems to be the shower heads, which are a little close to the walls! :)
