For academic year 2020/21, we are delighted to offer all incoming Erasmus and Exchange students on a University Study Abroad programme with one of Aberystwyth’s University partners, with guaranteed University owned or managed accommodation for the duration of their taught studies at Aberystwyth University.
To qualify for guaranteed University accommodation you must apply by the 01st August in the year of entry and also respond to your offer of accommodation by the deadline date detailed in the Accommodation Offer.
If you will be commencing your studies in the second semester, then you are still guaranteed a place in University accommodation, and you will be in a position to apply for accommodation from around November prior to your studies.
A place in University owned or managed accommodation is guaranteed, but not a specific type of room or location.
Full terms and conditions about guaranteed accommodation can be found in the Priorities Policy.
