APPLICATIONS FOR THE ROD JONES HALL

This is the Rod Jones Hall accommodation for students. You will be provided with safe, secure and convenient accommodation during your studies at Swansea University. Every room is a high quality en suite study bedroom, on Bay Campus, very near to The College academic building.

The way our students apply for accommodation has changed, and we are no longer using the Swansea University accommodation application Portal for our student intakes arriving from September 2019. Instead you will apply directly to The College, where you will receive a very personal service from the friendly College Accommodation Team.

You will still need to complete an application, tell us about your accommodation preferences (if you have any), and then, when you receive your formal Accommodation Offer and contract from us, you will pay a deposit to confirm your place.

SECURE YOUR COLLEGE ACCOMMODATION HERE*

*Please note that this application form is only for Rod Jones Halls at Bay Campus, which primarily houses students studying with The College, including students on the 4 year (with a Foundation year) School of Management programme.  If you are studying a 3 year undergraduate programme, then only use this form if you are directed to by Residential Services, Singleton Campus.  The link to Residential Services is here: University Residential Services.
If you are not sure which form to use, contact us at the-college-accommodation@swansea.ac.uk or contact Residential Services, Singleton Campus at accommodation@swansea.ac.uk
