One high inconvenience factor was lack of on site parking facility's. After spending 6hrs driving to the location, having to park the car 3/4 of a mile away was not good.

(Comentarios de Caswell, Langland & Oxwich Residence, Swansea)

I have enjoyed the last 8 weeks immensely. I am sorry this facility is not available at Christmas or Easter. If I am still commuting to Swansea next Summer, I will certainly rebook. Thank you.

(Comentarios de Horton Hall, Swansea)

The only slight problem I had was the corner of the metal bed frame was quite sharp and I cut my leg on it twice. It could perhaps filed to make it smoother. Otherwise the room was fine.

(Comentarios de Horton Hall, Swansea)

The reception and catering staff were very helpful and welcoming. I didn't expect a TV in the room but did think there would be somewhere on site to watch the news in the evening (there was TV in the Fusion Cafe during breakfast).

(Comentarios de Cefn Bryn & Kilvey Residence, Swansea)

I do not know if it was from outside or from inside the building but there was a constant unrelenting loud humb which did keep me awake and must be ennoying for student living there.

(Comentarios de Caswell, Langland & Oxwich Residence, Swansea)

Excellent facilities, great staff. Only issue I had was the mattress was a little lumpy and the pillow and quilt seemed to be synthetic rather feathered. That's just me being picky! Thanks for the great service. The reception staff were really nice.

It wasn't clear on the booking reservation where to get the keys from! Found it eventually though. Overall, very happy with the experience and look forward to staying again next year. Thank you to Karen and team for helping with the organisation.

Swansea información para los huéspedes

Swansea University Accommodation

Swansea University Campus is surrounded on 3 sides by parkland and on the fourth by the sea. It is located just over 2 miles from the city and the same from Mumbles which marks the start of the Gower Peninsula, the first area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Britain. It should be understood that the University halls are designed primarily for students, not for children or adults expecting a high level of luxury. However, the residences have achieved a Visit Wales 3 star and 4 star campus grading and they meet a level of comfort that we expect most visitors to be happy with. We will welcome any feedback where this is not the case.

Swansea: the city

Birthplace of Dylan Thomas, Swansea is Wales' second largest city, and is within walking distance of the five-mile sweep of Swansea Bay. During its 19th century industrial heyday, Swansea was one of the key centres of the world copper industry, earning the nickname 'Copperopolis'.

From state-of-the-art museum exhibits, sports facilities, galleries and theatres, to medieval castles, nature reserves and exotic gardens, Swansea combines the best of old and new: a modern, energetic city with strong historic roots.

Home and inspiration to Dylan Thomas, Swansea and Mumbles are essential destinations for learning about Wales' most famous literary figure. And sitting on the five-mile sandy stretch of Swansea Bay, just minutes from the Gower Peninsula, Swansea is also a perfect base for exploring some of the UK's most celebrated coastline.

Travel beyond Gower to the National Botanic Gardens of Wales and Aberglasney one of the finest gardens in Wales or stay closer to the campus and visit Clyne Gardens with its sweeping lawns and mysterious woods.

Swansea’s award winning Marina and Maritime Quarter are home to the National Waterfront Museum and the LC leisure complex & water park, both popular visitor attractions. In the city centre, you'll find the largest indoor market in Wales, where you can sample and buy many local delicacies such as cockles, laverbread and traditional Welshcakes.

Swansea visitor attractions

The National Waterfront Museum tells the story of Wales' industrial and maritime heritage. Swansea Museum is the oldest museum in Wales, opened in 1841. It contains a variety of exhibitions connected to Swansea and its people. The Dylan Thomas Centre celebrates the life and works of the poet and writer Dylan Thomas (1914-1953). The Glynn Vivian Art Gallery contains a mixture of traditional and modern art as well as a collection of porcelain and Swansea china.

Historical attractions include Swansea and Oystermouth Castles, dating from the 14th and early 12th centuries respectively. The 1930s Guildhall is a fine display of classical architecture with its white Portland stone façade and the 19th century Patti Pavilion is a Grade II listed building situated within Victoria Park, staging many shows, plays and musicals throughout the year.

Historia de Swansea

Swansea: the history

The history of Swansea includes a continuous period of human occupation stretching back one thousand years, and there is evidence for consistent occupation of the surrounding area for thousands of years before that into prehistory.

Swansea was the main town of the region for much of the medieval period. In the 18th century, the beauty of its surroundings led local dignitaries to attempt to establish it as a tourist resort. It achieved far greater prominence with the onset of the Industrial Revolution. Mirroring the similar population explosions in the South Wales Valleys, the town's population rose from 6000 to 17,000 between the 1801 and 1851 Censuses. Industry grew throughout the 19th century, drastically changing the shape and even geography of the town and its surroundings. In the 20th century, industry declined but the town continued to grow in population.

Swansea officially gained city status in 1969.

Swansea: the university

The University is located in Swansea, Wales. It was chartered as University College of Swansea in 1920. The new title of Swansea University was formally adopted on 1 September 2007. It is the third largest university in Wales in terms of number of students. The university campus is located next to the coast at the north of Swansea Bay, east of the Gower peninsula, in the grounds of Singleton Park, just outside Swansea city centre.
Swansea and Cardiff University compete in an annual varsity match, known as the Welsh version of the Oxbridge event, termed the Welsh Varsity.
