Good location right next to the train station however you have the noise of the trains on one side and the constant drone of the A27 on the other that makes it impossible to think unless you have earphones in. The hot water and heating frequently goes out and takes ages to fix, not something you want to find when you wake up and jump in the shower 15 minutes before a lecture! Beds are small, if you are over 5'10 your feet will stick off the end. Rooms are generally quite tatty, worn carpets, marked walls, screws loose in furniture. Overall would not recommend!
Honestly do not pick this accomodation. The porters and cleaners enter your room at any time they like (i was naked and hungover in bed and they just walked in and my flatmate had it happen whilst they were in the shower). They are also extremely rude. The accomodation is right next to a main road and its almost impossible to get to sleep. Its very hot in the halls, made worse by the fact you cant open the window without a f***** up amount of noise. The porters are useless about dealing with issues, youll report a problem and it takes them 2 weeks to even get back to you, if at all.
Over priced for what it is - rooms/kitchen stink not been cleaned properly ever. Mould in shower and bugs. Meant to have 24 hour porter but it is closed about 16 hours of the day. Crap laundry service as well with people leaving their s*** in the machine for hours on it. Full of internationals and anti social people. Fire alarm faulty. Single glazed windows so you can listen to the orchestra of the motorway at night for your convenience. Rooms are very dark. Internet patchy and sometimes just not working. Heating been turned off since March. Cleaner cleans bathroom and kitchen once a month which is okay
When I found out I was originally going to be at Stanmer Court I was upset but I honestly love Stanmer court now. The social aspect isn't great. We did have a GBBO socials where 40 people turned up with food to watch, and on halloween the RA's did some face painting and stuff like that. Location wise - it's got its pros and cons. Pros: It is super close to the station and has a bus stop right outside the accomodation so travelling off campus is super easy, also the distance from campus is honestly not a big deal it's maybe 10 minutes to get to the center of campus. The cons: stanmer is the opposite end of the campus for other fflats so it is quite isolated and antisocial. However, I feel the pros outweigh the cons. Ensuites are good and rooms are pretty big with big desks! There are rats but i've never seen them indoors (and all halls have them). The porters are the only 24 hour ones, so you feel safe and the laundry room being so close is hugely convenient! Would live here again tbh
I enjoyed living at Stanmer court until, it got invaded by rats, I was terrified to walk around or in the complex, it was very disgusting. Couldn't wait to leave by the end. Also there were too many issues with the water and electric and all kinds of people needed access to our rooms for whatever reason, couldn't ever feel comfortable in my own space.
