What do our students think?

Moving into halls of residence is the best possible thing a new student in a new city can do. I can’t really put into words what a good time I had in halls - all I can say is that I strongly recommend it!

Freya, staying at Talybont South


You meet the most amazing people doing all sorts of different courses. Uni Hall was a beautiful location, with big kitchens on each floor, en-suite bedrooms available, laundry room on the bottom floor, security, and car parking was cool!
