Step outside your student accommodation and stroll to the seafront. Breathe in the fresh sea air on Brighton’s pebble beach, then head to the pier for fish and chips or a ride on the rollercoaster. Explore the bohemian North Laine and pick up a new outfit from Nola Boutique, then hunt for hidden gems in vintage market Snooper’s Paradise. Grab a takeaway from Burger Brothers and picnic on the grass in the pretty Pavilion Gardens, or meet friends for spicy burritos at La Choza. As the sun sets, sip cocktails by the sea at Lucky Beach, then hit the dance floor at popular student haunt, Coalition.
Your central location means that you can walk to the University of Brighton’s Grand Parade campus in 25 minutes. If you’re based in Moulsecoomb or Falmer, or studying at the University of Sussex, catch a bus outside your door and get to class in less than 30 minutes. Alternatively, walk 15 minutes to Brighton Station, and ride to campus in nine minutes.
Your new home is next door to a Sainsbury’s supermarket, so it’s easy to pick up something for dinner on your way back home. Carry your bags upstairs up to your bedroom, then whip up your favourite meals in the fully equipped kitchen. Eat in comfort in the lounge area as you chat to your friends about your day, or simply relax and watch TV together. If you’re not a confident cook, cross the street and pick up healthy vegetarian food from Iydea, or get gourmet pizza and ice cream delivered from Pizzaface instead.
When you need to hit the books, retreat to your room and take a seat at your desk. Connect to the high-speed internet and make a start on your next assignment.
With work out of the way, freshen up with a hot shower in your ensuite bathroom, then head out to meet friends at Brighton Beer Dispensary, followed by a movie at Duke’s at Komedia. Back home at Britannia, there’s 24-hour reception and security, as well as key card entry, so you’ll rest easy in your comfy double bed.
