Is there accommodation available?

When should I apply for accommodation?

When will I start my course?
For all courses starting in January 2022, your enrolment, welcome and induction activities will take place between Tuesday 4 January 2022 and Monday 17 January 2022.
Teaching for all courses will begin between Monday 10 January and Monday 24 January 2022. Please see the enrolment timetable for more information.
Your enrolment and teaching timetable will be emailed to you a few weeks before your course is due to start.
How do I enrol onto my course?
We'll send you full enrolment instructions via email a few weeks before your course is due to start.
Will I have to quarantine when I arrive in Swansea? How will the University support me during quarantine?
You can find all the latest COVID-19 guidance here.
Will there be a Freshers' week?
Yes, there will! We can’t say exactly what will be happening as we’re not sure what Government guidelines we’ll be following at that point, but we will be running lots of events, either virtually or physically, where you can meet friends, as well as join clubs and societies. We hope to be able to continue to operate our outdoor social spaces on both campuses.
Swansea University welcomes the new guidance from Welsh Government (30 June 2021), which will enable us to continue to provide some face-to-face teaching from September while still putting the safety of staff, students and the wider community at the centre of all we do.
New and returning students will be encouraged to test before they come to university, and regularly for the first 28 days after they arrive. Anyone aged 18 and over who has not been vaccinated will be able to book their vaccine straight away.
We are working through the detail of the guidance and will be giving more details of teaching and learning arrangements when we are able. We will also be working with the Students’ Union to provide a fun, safe arrivals programme to allow new students to get to know each other.
Our aim as ever is to provide a first-class student experience for all and we are looking forward to welcoming both new and returning students to our beautiful campuses with all Swansea and the surrounding area has to offer.
Can I study part-time?
Some of our courses starting in January 2022 can be studied part-time - visit individual course pages for more details. International students are not currently able to study part-time.
Can I study online only?
We will confirm later in the year if some courses can be studied completely online.
What sort of student experience can I expect?
The student experience is different this year and our university community has to comply with government guidelines. Students have formed a household bubble with the people they live with, whether that’s in university halls of residence or in private accommodation. They are also socialising with those people. We have built outdoor social spaces where students have been socialising, with food and drink available. These spaces are also used for film nights, pilates and yoga classes. Students are still playing sport and taking part in the activities of their clubs and societies.
