The accommodation at Sussex is largely very pleasant, modern and spacious. The halls to avoid I'd say are Stanmer Court as it is so far away from all the other halls, and Northfield as (a) it is just so expensive and you can get equally nice accommodation for so much less! and (b) it's at the back end of campus far from lecture theatres, the train station, co-op and other halls. If you're looking for a party place then East Slope is definitely the best option! But probably not the best if you need quiet time to study or want lots of space to yourself. Lewes Court offers affordable accommodation, with relatively modern facilities and a nice atmosphere from what I've experienced. It's placed in the middle of other halls, making it sociable but also quiet when you need the time to study. You get the choice of en-suite or without. I would definitely choose without en-suite as you save money every week just by sharing two toilets between five - which is never ever as bad as people think! If you're lazy and don't like walking much, or often late getting up in time for lectures then Swanborough is very central, opposite the co-op and adjacent to several main lecture theatres and is closest to the library. Brighthelm is nice though has a reputation for being fairly unsociable, as people like remaining within their five-bedroom houses. Many would argue going to Brighthelm doesn't feel like the proper uni-experience - it's like a house rather than traditional uni halls.
