If you live with good people, Brighthelm is the best! Best for parties, each house has a balcony and it's the only accommodation with a washing machine and dryer!

Really good accomodation for those who can afford it. Comfortable 5-person terrace homes, with Tumble Driers and Washing Machines. A little far up from Co-op and the rest of campus, but easily makes up for it in being great for parties, or just comfortable living.

The maintenance of this place was terrible. I had disgustingly messy housemates, who eventually got so bad it led to us getting mice in the kitchen. I reported this problem every week to the porter, and no one did anything. Eventually rats replaced the mice, and still nothing happened! It was a health hazard, especially as most of the lights didn't work either in the stairwells. However, it did have a great patio for barbecues, the rooms were big and the washing machine and dryer were a big plus. Still overpriced in my opinion though.

Great facilities however social aspect isn't great because you're only sharing with 4 other people the social aspect isn't so good. Also your facilities manager is based in swanborough so you have to walk a bit further to sort out any issues but it's not too bad. I have enjoyed my time there

The hall I'm staying in is near perfect completely equipped with everything (washing machine & dryer) and with only 5 people per house it's quite convenient and comfortable to manage and socialise. Moreover the room is quite spacious and with a lot of spaces to store things compared to other halls in the uni. The bathroom and toilet is also better than other houses ( in my opinion ) and I would say the rent is value for money compared to the rest of the halls here.

Love having a washing machine and the size of the rooms are great.. Just wish there were more sofas in the kitchen!

Really good space and balcony is amazing. Cleaner is negligent and tried to fine us for dirty social space when he wasn't bothered to clean properly

Very expensive, but only accommodation with washing machine. Lots of noise which campus security refuse to do anything about. Good luck doing well in a morning exam when you've had 2 hours sleep!

I've loved living in Brighthelm, the washing machine is a definite bonus and the kitchen/social area is great. Best value for money at Sussex in my opinion, the 2 bathrooms between 5 people is fine and makes an ensuite seem unnessecary. However, management of the accommodation is quite poor- when we report something i.e. broken hob, cold shower, or worst of all, MICE, nothing is done for weeks if not months, even if we report several times!

I loved living in Brighthelm!!! Having a washing machine was literally the best thing ever. The house was beautiful and in a great location right next to everything.
