New for 2020
From September 2020 Pantycelyn, Wales' most famous hall of residence will offer brand new en-suite accommodation for up to 200 students, exciting social spaces, games facilities and fully equipped study rooms.
A five minute walk from the Penglais campus and town, Pantycelyn is the beating heart of Aberystwyth University's vibrant Welsh speaking community.
It is also the home of UMCA – Aberystwyth's Welsh Students Union – Y Geltaidd's sports teams and social activities, and the Pantycelyn choir.
Uniquely, Pantycelyn is a catered hall, offering residents the chance to come together and socialise at meal times, and at £5512 for the 2020/2021 academic year (including food) is excellent value for money.
Be part of it, make Pantycelyn your home from home. We look forward to seeing you there.
