Residence Life

Welcome to YOUR Residential Community!

‌Joining Aberystwyth University is only the beginning of something very exciting. By choosing to live in University accommodation, you will become part of a much bigger, supportive, fun and vibrant community.

The Residence Life team are here to help you have the best student residential experience possible and truely make the most of your time at Aberystwyth University.

A team of students, for students!

As a fellow student, your Resident Assistant is here to provide support and guidance to create a positive living and learning environment and ensure that the residential community you live in can flourish.

This may include guidance on resolving flat disputes, how to combat exam stress, or simply where to find the best cup of coffee in Aber! If they can’t help or don’t know the answer, they’ll signpost you to someone who can.

They can also put you in touch with a whole host of events, activities, sports and entertainment provided by the Students’ Union and Sport Aber, to enhance your student experience.

In addition to this, throughout the year, they will be arranging small residential events between flats and in the communal spaces around your accommodation, giving you the opportunity to meet new people and perhaps try something new.

Visit our Residence Life Facebook page where you can keep up to date with all the latest events.

How do you find us?

Each Resident Assistant is responsible for their own 'patch' of students and they will be on hand over the Big Welcome Weekend, and the weeks that follow, to help you settle into your accommodation. Throughout the year your RA will call in to see how things are going, check if you have any worries or concerns that they can help with and provide you with up to date information on all the amazing events and activities that are going on around campus and within your residence.
