Taking a Year Out

Students taking a year out in Industry or Abroad will still have access to their Aberystwyth University email account and therefore are asked to apply for accommodation in the same way as other current students for the following academic year. Please check your email account regularly.

Further details about these schemes can be found on the Year in Employment Scheme (YES) pages.

What are my options?

Despite any rumours you may hear, don’t rush to arrange accommodation for your second, third (or fourth) year of study. There is no shortage of student accommodation in Aberystwyth!   

Traditionally, the house hunting period starts from November in preparation for the coming September, giving you plenty of time to decide where you want to live and who you want to live with. When it comes to finding accommodation for next year DON'T RUSH – settle in and enjoy University life!

Remember that once you have signed an accommodation contract (and paid deposits where required) it is very difficult, and sometimes impossible, to reverse the decision, so make sure you have thought everything through before deciding.

You have lots of options open to you such as living in university accommodation, living in private sector student housing, using either our Aber Studentpad Accommodation Database or various letting agents in Aberystwyth to find a student house or flat, or renting a room with other large student accommodation providers.
