Residence Life

Live. Laugh. Learn. 

‌Want to join one of the fastest growing campus communities in the UK? Interested in making friends and memories to last a lifetime? Fancy experiencing‌ new cultures, ideas, and events?  

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then come and join the Aberystwyth Residence Life Community!

Here at Residential Life, it is our mission to help you make the most out of your time at Aberystwyth University. From midnight pancake parties and book groups to dance marathons and gaming tournaments, the Residential Life team of Residence Assistants are here working around the clock to make your time at uni unforgettable.

We are a team composed of students for students. 

Who are we exactly?

Resident Assistant (RA): noun (1) a student leader who works to build a positive living and learning environment (2) an organizer of community building events (3) an undercover superhero    

As a team composed of over 30 students and staff members, we offer both a signposting service and social outlets throughout your time at university.

From creating social, recreational, and educational opportunities for your accommodation block and campus community to offering a nightly on-call support service, we are a service that is operated by students and puts students first.

How do you find us?

It is a big world out there, but we promise we are not hiding.

During Fresher's Week your RA will pop around, introduce him/herself, and see how you are settling in. Throughout the semester your RA will stop by with information about campus led events and at times, even cookies.

However, if at anypoint you are overwhelmed with your new uni life, give us a ring and we will help you to transition.

Want to get involved?

By living in university accommodation, you have access to all of the benefits offered by the Res Life Team. However, if you want to make a difference in your own community we are here to help you make an impact.
