East Slope

East Slope is one of several accommodation blocks at the University of Sussex.

East Slope was constructed in the early 1970s. It is located on the side of a hill near the back of the eastern side of the campus. A series of stone steps connect paths which run horizontally along the slope.

East Slope has 100 terraced single-storey flats, housing 504 undergraduates and 68 postgraduates. Lower-numbered flats are generally towards the bottom of the hill. Most flats have either six or twelve bedrooms, with kitchen/dining rooms, shower and toilet facilities. There are also ten family flats on the site.

Towards the bottom of the blocks of accommodation there is the porter's office, and as you walk down through the car park in front of the office, East Slope Bar is to the right. This bar is probably the most "pub-like" of the bars on campus and is generally very lively in the evenings. On many weekday and weekend nights there is live music or a DJ set.

2011 single room "guideline" rent is £80 a week, which means most students agreeing to a tenancy agreement of 39 weeks pay £3,120 for the academic year. For students willing to share a room, a small number of these are available, with the rent set at £57-69 per person a week depending on the size of the room.

Famous quotes containing the word east:

    Before I finally went into winter quarters in November, I used to resort to the north- east side of Walden, which the sun, reflected from the pitch pine woods and the stony shore, made the fireside of the pond; it is so much pleasanter and wholesomer to be warmed by the sun while you can be, than by an artificial fire. I thus warmed myself by the still glowing embers which the summer, like a departed hunter, had left.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
