Current Undergraduate Students

Accommodation Applications for 2021/22 are now open!

Places are offered first come, first served in line with our Priorities Policy.  However, if you change your mind you are not tied in by simply applying.

How to apply


Next Year Accommodation 

Despite any rumours you may hear, don't rush to arrange accommodation for your second, third (or fourth) year of study. There is no shortage of student accommodation in Aberystwyth!

Traditionally, the house hunting period starts from November in preparation for the coming September, giving you plenty of time to decide where you want to live and who you want to live with. When it comes to finding accommodation for next year DON'T RUSH - settle in and enjoy university life!

Remember that once you have signed an accommodation contract (and paid deposits where required) it is very difficult, and sometimes impossible, to reverse the decision, so make sure you have thought everything through before deciding, make sure you’re making the decision that is right for you and not for anyone else. 

To find out what accommodation is available to you why not see our accommodation options and compare our residences.

Taking a year out

Students embarking on a Sandwich placement which is an integral part of their degree will be eligible to apply for University accommodation in the same way as other current students.

Students participating in the Year in Employment Scheme (YES) are not registered students at Aberystwyth University so are therefore not eligible to apply for University accommodation during their year in employment. Please refer to our Alternative Accommodation section below.

Alternative Accommodation

You have lots of options open to you such as living in university accommodation, living in private sector student housing, using various letting agents in Aberystwyth to find a student house or flat, or renting a room with other large accommodation providers.
