Nice location as far as being near sport centre and a few minutes walk from main uni is concerned but the noise from the train could be disturbing if you go to bed early and the rats are never nice

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 shit 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

Stanmer court is fab!! You meet so many people within your block and get to know them really well! The 5 min walk to campus is good exercise and there's a bus stop right outside for going in to town.

I'm at Stanmer now, I love the Uni but this accommodation was never a choice I just got put there. Very unsociable but uni's what you make it, if you make yourself active you'll find some cool people.

Stanmer court is full of international students, many who do not want to socialize so it can get really boring and lonely. There is either s***ty or no service.

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.
