Finding your new home in Swansea

Moving into your University accommodation is a big part of your student journey. It may be your first time living away from home. This is incredibly exciting, but we understand that it is a huge step, so we guarantee accommodation for undergraduate students during your first year of study, provided you apply by the 30 June deadline. This guarantee provides you with a  safety net and one less thing to think of. 

Finding the right accommodation can make a real difference when it comes to settling in and feeling at home and we know we have something that will suit everyone. We have several accommodation options available, and our dedicated Residential Services team are on hand to assist you, every step of the way.

Which option is best for me?

Choosing your accommodation depends on a number of factors, such as the location you would like to live in, and your preference of cooking and living arrangements.

Our designated accommodation areas provide single sex and alcohol-free accommodation, and we also cater for mature students, Welsh speakers and those who are studying subjects with non-standard course lengths. We understand that everyone is looking for a different living experience and we aim to support you with this. A number of our rooms are adapted and accessible. Please specify if you would like to live in one of these areas on your application and we can consider this and work with you while allocating your accommodation.

Take a look at our residences to find out more about the different accommodation available during your first year of study.

Living Off-Campus

Some students decide that they would prefer to live off-campus in private sector student houses and flats in Swansea. The University’s letting agency, Student Accommodation Services (SAS) manages over 145 quality properties close to both campuses, as well as local facilities such as shops, bars and restaurants.

Our online, searchable database, Studentpad, allows you to locate available private housing in the area and takes the effort out of house-hunting.

The SAS team are happy to help and can provide you with support in finding the perfect off campus living experience.
