Wales’ seaside city is home to students from both Swansea University and Swansea Metropolitan University, boasting a busy and vibrant student community with high-quality Swansea student houses. In addition to waterfront escapes such as beach walks, windsurfing, swimming and sun-bathing, Swansea offers everything students need to make the most of their time at university. The city’s streets are full of both high-street brands and boutique retailers, and there is no shortage of pubs to suit every taste. Popworld proves a favourite to end the night for Swansea students, followed the next morning (if you make it out of your Swansea student house!) by the famous Mega Beast Breakfast found only at Uplands Diner. We highly recommend booking viewings in November as the most popular Swansea student houses typically book before the Christmas break.
