 Private Accommodation

  • If you do not want to live in university accommodation, you will need to find private accommodation. Click here for a list of accommodation. There are a few things to think about if you would like to do this:
  • You will need to book a bed and breakfast hotel for a couple of nights while you look at rooms.
  • Landlords who provide this type of accommodation will also ask you for payment in advance for part or all of the rent


Residential Services is only able to recommend university regulated accommodation: if you are interested in living with a local family, we suggest searching the Internet using keywords for Swansea homestay or similar.
