You’ve decided on Swansea University– we’re thrilled you’ve decided to come to us.
If you’ve been wrapped up in exam preparations and summer busy-ness until now, then you may need to follow this brief guide to sort your accommodation.
It may sound basic but it’s easily overlooked. Follow the guide and apply for accommodation online.
When it comes to making preferences and choices you can have a look at Our Residences pages to have an idea of what’s where. Considerations include where your course is taught, (Bay: Computer Science, Engineering, School of Management, Sports Science, Singleton: Human and Health, Medical School, College of Arts and Humanities, College of Science and the College of Law). Consider also what you can afford and if you would like to stay in a designated area such as single sex, alcohol free, quieter area, Welsh speakers, Mature and Postgrad. Once offered – you will have 7 days to pay a deposit of £350 which will be taken out of your final term of payment.
2) Get chatting
Once you’ve got your accommodation, find and start chatting to your flatmates online by joining our social Media accounts: twitter and facebook are the main ones that we have. Join your site group and then create your own groups for your floor or flat, that way you can start chatting to find out who’s bringing what.
