We are very excited about the upcoming grand opening of our new Halls of Residence at the Bay Campus - the Rod Jones Complex, which will be dedicated to students studying with The College, Swansea University.

Located directly next door to 2000 Swansea University study bedrooms already built on the Bay Campus this will be a welcomed addition, increasing the size and diversity of the student resident population.  There will be 411 en suite study bedrooms arranged into 49 flats, varying in size from 6 to 11 rooms and each flat will have a large kitchen/living space.  The new residence mirrors the successful design and features of the other University Halls.

Although the living quarters are almost identical, the addition of a dedicated Reception, together with a large common room and shower facilities, available for all Bay Campus residents, enhances the offering further.

Our students arriving this September will be staying in the Swansea University Halls built only last year, and therefore located directly next door to the new site.  In the second half of January 2019, after all exams are finished, residents will have the privilege of being the very first to live in the Rod Jones Complex by moving next door, into identical flats with their flatmates, to ensure that friendships made in the first semester will continue.

To ensure that the move will be as quick and easy as possible, The College will be providing practical assistance to residents, including “helping hands”, packing boxes and organising the move dates and times to avoid any disruption to studies. Students will move out of one block and into the new block on the same day.

If you have any questions about the move, please do get in touch by sending an email to The College Accommodation department, the-college-accommodation@swansea.ac.uk or call us on +44 (0) 1792 602 888.
