Make your home in Moulsecoomb and you can walk 20 minutes to University of Brighton Moulsecoomb Campus. Take the train or bus from the station by campus to get into Brighton in 10 minutes, or to the University of Sussex in 20 minutes. If you don’t want to go far to pick up supplies the shops of Lewes Road are around 15 minutes’ walk from your home. Head down the road to Round Hill to spend evenings at the pub, have a meal out or go for coffee with mates.
When it’s time to get on with your work, return home to Barcombe Road and the four-bedroom house you’ll share with friends. There are two bathrooms to share between you so you won’t be queueing for the shower in the morning. Relax in the lounge, study in your room, or take your books and laptops to Aldrich Library, 20 minutes’ walk away, to study at one of the desks or work on a group project.
Stay on top of your fitness with long bike rides through the local parks. Take a path through the woods at Wild Park, or cycle through Stanmer Park, stopping to picnic or get tea in the café. Shop in the superstore at Brighton Marina, 10 minutes’ drive from your home, then enjoy coffee and cake at Laughing Dog, where the gallery’s artworks adorn the walls. Walk along to West Jetty and chat to the fishermen to plan a boat trip to go fishing. Try sea kayaking or canoeing from Brighton Beach or take in the stunning white chalk cliffs with a walk on the beach at Rottingdean.
