East Slope bar offers fantastic on campus nightlife in a casual setting and falmer bar offers a space for alternative events. The University of Sussex has two gym facilities - one is not so great, the other is much more modern and better equipped. The sports classes offered by the Sport Centre are out of this world and the instructors go the extra mile to make sure you have a varied and rewarding workout. Sussex makes the most of the outdoors by providing plenty of space to enjoy but could do with some extra outdoor tables or benches througout campus.×

There are plenty of places to eat or buy food on campus, the two bars are awesome and have their own themed nights of various kinds, like pub quizzes. The student's union building is full of bookable rooms for societies to hold meetings, and a couple of larger spaces for union events/parties and to meet friends. Plenty of nice outdoor space for when the weather is nice and a few indoor spaces for when the weather is nice. However, most of the larger spaces are dedicated to study, such as the library (with the exception of the cafe/social space within the library) and the IT rooms/areas all over campus.×

There are lots of open spaces and meeting rooms where students can go. Most lecture theaters are open so students can go and hold group project meetings etc. there are 3 cafe's/restaurants that I know of on campus that are reasonable. there are 2 bars that open till late. During my time here the students union has had a very visible presence on campus and is always easy to find. There is a big sports complex on campus (however no swimming facilities but the Students union can point you to many cheap ones around town)×

Sussex has two great bars run by the student union - East Slope and Falmer - both of which have their own character and are great to relax in at the end of the day, or pop in for lunch and a chat with friends. The union also runs a convenience shop which is well priced - whether you forgot your lunch or pencil case! There are a number of cafes located around the campus - particularly useful is the one in the library; its situation on campus is perfect for when you have breaks between seminars/lectures, or at the beginning of the day for a hot drink. There is a lot of outdoor grassy area, particularly around the library and Arts A building, which on a sunny day you will often find will be packed with students enjoying their lunch, reading and socialising.×

I'd say definitely don't live in east slope, and park village is a bit dodgy in places. Brighthelm is probably the best accommodation for being social and still nice, but lewes court, north field, stanmer and swanborough are all nice but expensive and a bit antisocial. The phone signal in northfield and lewes court is practically none existent too.×

I applied for Swanborough, but was instead given Lancaster House, at the time I was really disappointed because I wanted the 'luxuries' that came with the former (ensuite, lounge area etc). Looking back, I couldn't be happier that I ended up in Lancaster House, I've met some of the best friends I've ever made there, yes we only had one working shower and toilet between 12, but it all added to the fun. The atmosphere in the building was great, and above all - it made my university experience infinitely better than I had managed possible.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
