Live With Us Love Life!

At Aberystwyth, we're proud of the vibrant community that our students experience within our residences. We offer a variety of styles, budgets and locations to find the space that works for you, with the majority of our residences being only a short walk away from campus plus FREE Sports Centre Platinum Membership for your health and wellbeing.
