Postgraduate Residences

We recognise that some Postgraduate courses run for 52 weeks and so we offer a variety of licence lengths to suit you, but please be aware that the longest length of stay we can offer is 50 weeks.

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).

Alternative Accommodation Options

As a Postgraduate student you may prefer to live in Private Sector accommodation and we offer advice and assistance on this too. We maintain a database of privately owned rented properties which you can conveniently search through online; if you need any help with your search simply get in touch with us.

If you are coming to Aberystwyth with dependents you may wish to take a look at our section on Family & Couples Accommodation.
