Find your home away from home with our range of accommodation options for international students, from shared to studio apartments.

Due to UKVI regulations, our international students must have an address in South Wales or the South West of England, therefore we encourage you to explore accommodation options in the local area and enjoy the great facilities and standard of living South Wales has to offer.

One way to create unforgettable memories and make life-long friends is choosing to live at our halls of residence - the perfect way to make the most of your student experience in the UK. 

You will receive an invitation to apply for accommodation via email once you have accepted your offer with USW. When applying, you can select your desired room type and other preferences.
