Residence Life

By choosing to live in Aberystwyth University accommodation, you will become part of an exceptionally inclusive and supportive community that welcomes all! The Residence Life team are here to help you have the best student experience possible and inspire you to make the most of your time here at Aberystwyth University.

A Team of Students, For Students!

Your Residence Assistants (RAs) are fellow students who are here to provide you with support and guidance, while aiming to create a positive living and learning environment and to foster a sense of community across the university. This may include guidance on resolving flat disputes, how to combat exam stress, information on events, activities and sports around the area, or simply where to find the best cup of coffee in Aber! If they can't help, they will signpost you to someone who can.

Throughout the year, your RA team will be arranging small-scale events in the communal spaces around your accommodation, giving you the opportunity to meet new people and perhaps try something new. They will also stop by your flat or house regularly to see how things are going, provide you with up-to-date information on all the events and activities that are going on around campus and within your residence, and check if you have any worries or concerns that they can help with.

The RA team will be holding drop-in sessions every weeknight between 9pm-11pm at Campus Reception (pictured above). Simply pop in to see them or alternatively, you can speak to an RA via our live chat service (accessible through the Accommodation Office webpage between 9pm-11pm Monday to Friday).
