Once you have been accepted to study at Swansea, the Go Global Team will send you information that includes your student number, which you can then use to complete your online accommodation application. You cannot complete your application without the information from the Go Global Team.
Although we do not guarantee accommodation for visiting and exchange students, you are still able to apply. To stand the best chance of securing accommodation, you should apply before:
Full year (September - June): 30 June
Semester 1 (September - January): 30 June
Semester 2 (January - June): 30 November
When will I know if I have secured my accommodation?
Full year: Rooms are normally offered to visiting and exchange students once we have allocated rooms to our full-time students who are under our guarantee. This happens after the majority of students receive their exam results in late August. Offers are then sent out almost daily.
Single semester: You should receive a room offer within 2 weeks of applying but at least 2 weeks prior to arrival. Check your email and accommodation account weekly for updates regarding allocation of accommodation.
It’s not normally possible to end your contract early once the contract is signed. You are bound by the conditions of your contract and you may need to go through an appeals process to be released.
Paying your Accommodation Fees
- You will have to pay a reservation deposit online within 7 days of getting your offer – this is deducted from your final rent payment.
- Please note that this reservation deposit is non-refundable if you later choose to cancel the accommodation allocated to you.
- Full information about when and how to pay for the accommodation can be found here: Finance & Fees
- Single semester: You will need to pay your full semester’s accommodation by the date shown on your tenancy agreement.
USA Fee Paying Visiting Students Only
If your accommodation costs are paid directly to Swansea University by your home university in the USA, you are still responsible for booking your own accommodation, but you will not need to pay us anything more than your reservation deposit when you make your online booking. Please check with the Study Abroad office at your home university to see if this applies to you.
