The perfect choice for you!

Swansea University is keen to support its strong community of Welsh speakers. As a result, the University has created a home for Welsh students on allocated floors for students who speak Welsh or who are learning the language and who wish to live together. Aelwyd Penmaen is located on the Singleton Campus and Aelwyd Emlyn on the Bay Campus. 

Why should you choose accommodation with other Welsh speakers?

  • A homely atmosphere
  • Opportunity to be part of a close and supportive community
  • Live and socialise through the medium of Welsh
  • Opportunity to take full advantage of a wide range of educational and social activities through the medium of Welsh.

By choosing Aelwyd Penmaen or Aelwyd Emlyn you will be at the heart of university life, and part of a close community with other Welsh speakers - the perfect choice to help you settle in quickly. Aelwyd Penmaen and Aelwyd Emlyn offer en-suite and self-catering accommodation with social spaces. All returning students to years 2, 3 and 4 are also eligible to apply for this accommodation.

If you don't want to live with other Welsh speakers, there are plenty of other options available to you. Visit the accommodation pages to see the choices available.
