East Slope (University of Sussex)

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

East Slope was constructed in the early 1970s.Fact|date=June 2007 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 [http://www.sussex.ac.uk/residentialservices/1-2-1-3.html East Slope : Residential Services : University of Sussex ] ] , housing 482 undergraduates and 93 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.

2007 single room "guideline" rent is £68 a week, which means most students agreeing to a tenancy agreement of 39 weeks pay £2,652 for the academic year. This is the cheapest on campus.Fact|date=June 2007

East Slope generally tends to be the liveliest accommodation on campusFact|date=June 2007, with many student parties being hosted there, particularly at the beginning and end of terms. Many students are attracted to the accommodation by the relatively cheap rents and the communal feel of the accommodation.
