place to live

by rubenpurcell

Hi I'm going to th e university of Swansea ...were are the best places to live for a student, were should i look?

Re: place to live

You should contact the University accommodation office as soon as possible. They will be able to advise you on what student accommodation is available (I assume you are doing a postgraduate course?) and what parts of Swansea will give you the best access to the university, if you need privately-rented accommodation. They will also have a list of approved landlords/rented flats etc. I am sure they will be very helpful.

All their contact details are on this page:

www.swan.ac.uk/accommodation

The Swansea Students' Union (you will automatically be a member) can also offer helpful advice and guidance on housing, as well as all sorts of other issues. They run their own letting (rental) agency: see button bottom left of this page:

I agree with Leics. Contact the accomodation office asap. Best places, which will be the first to go are in Brynmill and Sketty. Both are within walking distance.
Further out from the campus is the city centre itself (in the heart of the night life), Mumbles (middle class area with great bars), West Cross (close to the campus and a short bus ride into the centre) and Townhill (cheap last resort accomodation - and that's being kind to the area).

Travel Tips for Swansea

Crymlyn Burrows

by halikowski

Off for a walk on Crymlyn Burrows, some impromptu artists have been at work.
Swansea University wants to develop this site, though seems to have run out of money for the moment to pursue its dreams.

Visit the Norwegian Church

by Myfanwe

The Norwegian Church at Swansea is a grade II listed building which was originally located near the bridge crossing the River Tawe into the City and was dismantled before being moved to its new location alongside the Prince of wales Dock. It is now home to a very exclusive Gallery which showcases Welsh designer jewellery and silverware at very exclusive prices. It's a lovely place to have a wander around and would be an ideal place to buy jewellery for a special occasion. A great feature in the Church are the lovely arched windows which give great views over the docks.

Shop till you drop

by Myfanwe

Swansea has a great shopping centre with indoor shopping arcades, pedestrianised streets and the largest Indoor Market in Wales.

The Quadrant Centre is the main indoor arcade which has all the usual high street shops, banks and cafe's. From the Quadrant is an entrance to The Indoor Market. This is a great place to shop, there are stalls selling pratically everything under the sun - Locally produced meats, fish, vegetables, Clothing, gifts, walking sticks - you name it they've got it. In the centre of the Market is a great stall selling Cockles and Lava bread from the Gower coast just down the road. The Lava bread here is said to be the best in Wales! There are a number of small cafe's in the market aswell... you'll probably need a sit down and a cuppa after shopping in Swansea!

"Swansea City"

The centre of Swansea is brilliant for shopping, drinking, eating and thats about it. The main city centre offers lots of shops and some nice little resteraunts in the day and some awesome hotspots in the night. The one resteraunt I really recommend if you like chinese food is the Rendezvous just down the road from the McDonalds in castle gardens. Also Mumbles is worth a visit a nice little seaside town with a path that runs alongside the the beach and the road which leads you back into Swansea. At the mumbles end of the path is a resteraunt/ice cream parlour called Verdi's which is worth a visit. There are a few beaches in Swansea my favourite nearest the city is Caswell which I find to have quite clean water.

"Gower"

The place you've probably really come to see if you've visited Swansea. It's a type of countryside bliss with rolling hills and green fields which eventually lead out to the sea, with plenty of pubs in between. A nice pub is the King Arthur in Reynoldston, it has a very old-fashioned feel. Then you come to the beaches my personal favourite being Llangennith as it is very big, rarely gets crowded and has some of the best surf in Swansea and Gower. There are also two islands(?) one being Worms' Head and the other Burry Holmes, I think both are worth a walk as there are plenty of pools and rockpools to have a play in and the views are lovely. The only problem with this beach is the water is not particulary clean though that never puts me off. If you are looking for food after a day on the beach there are some small resteraunts in Rhossili which is the village near Worms' Head, but my favourite is a resteraunt/cafe called Eddy's which is on the Hillend Caravan Site. You can get to the Caravan Site from the beach via most of the paths leading through the dunes.

"Brecon Beacons"

Not exactly Swansea but still worth a visit if you're in the area. Basically a lot of mountains and lakes with stunning views and plenty of walks and mountain bike trails. My favourite mountain to climb is Pen-Y-Fan the highest mountain in the Beacons.

Have Fun Exploring Swansea and Wales
