Student Accommodation in Swansea

Swansea is the second biggest city in Wales and is the perfect place for any student wanting the city life whilst being close to the beach – who wouldn’t! With some of the best coastline in the UK, you have to visit all or any of the variety of beaches and bays that Swansea has to offer. Swansea Bay itself has 20 miles long worth of cliffs, sea and villages to explore on your time off of studying.

Swansea is well known for its nightlife with its endless assortment of clubs, bars, and music venues. From speakeasy’s, to wine bars, to street performances, there is something for anyone and everyone looking for social evenings out. Don’t miss out on trip to Wind Street too – the hub of not only just places to drink, but a great amount of restaurants to get a bite to eat. There are also many budget-friendly options for food and drinks so your nights out don’t break the bank either.

If you love poetry and history, then you won’t be disappointed with the multiple commemoration sites to the life of the famous poet, Dylan Thomas, who was born and lived in Swansea. Here you cannot just look but you can tour around his home, as well as visit places like Cwmdonkin Park and Dylan Thomas Square where he once walked, and Dylan Thomas Centre to see the full exhibition.
