Halls of residence: Falmer campus

Falmer is one of our main campuses and is set in the hills of the Sussex Downs, five miles from the Brighton seafront.

There are two halls of residence on the Falmer campus, both offering a similarly high standard of accommodation. Paddock Field halls have been in operation for several years. Great Wilkins offers a longer tenancy period of 50 weeks, making it convenient for European and international postgraduate students.

Facilities on Falmer campus include a sport centre, restaurant, cafe/bar, cash machine and shop. You can also use the facilities on the University of Sussex campus.
