I’ll publish this in case it’s useful for anyone else. Congrats, first of all :D
It depends which room you go for. The prices range from £80-130 a week (I believe they’re on the sussex housing site) and the top end of the scale has en-suites and are just generally a lot nicer imo. I live off campus now and it’s 352 a month not inc. bills, and bills generally push it up to btwn 380-90 a month. Which is still sort of lower-range campus price. And also bear in mind that the cheapest of the cheap housing is kind of nasty. My rent obviously doesn’t factor in travel costs though, but buses are quite cheap. Dunno how much they are though, but superhermit will know :D
Personally I MUCH prefer living off campus even without an en-suite, living on campus was not good for me at all and I didn’t realise how much I’d hated it until I moved into shared housing. It’s just very isolating and noisy and stressful and yeah. If you like the sort of party sleepover sharing is caring thing go for it tho. I know it works for a lot of people - I just never felt fully comfortable living on campus.
tl;dr it basically depends on what you want, but there are good/bad points to both options. I don’t know how likely you aer to get a place - I obviously only had to go through it from the first year student perspective :)
