Where you live is just as important as what you learn.
Halls are a big part of your student experience and there’s accommodation at all three of our locations. There are great transport links to keep you connected to each of our campuses and surrounding locations.
Guarantee of Accommodation
The university offers a guarantee of accommodation in the halls of residence for all full-time undergraduate applicants applying from within the UK who meet our eligibility criteria.
Halls at Pontypridd are on campus and they’re a big part of the community atmosphere that our students love. Framed by green hills and with over 1,200 rooms and students from all over the UK and the world, you’ll make friends for life.
Many students choose to live in Cardiff, especially those studying a creative course.
Newport is an exciting, independent and multicultural city.
Why Student Accommodation?
Friendly Student Community
Settling in and making new friends are important first steps in university life. Living in student accommodation provides the perfect opportunity to meet different people studying a range of subjects.
All of our accommodation options are perfectly located, not only close to campus, but also to the local shops, pubs, and transport links. Each of our campuses are within short train journeys from each other.
Gain Some Independence
Taking the plunge and moving away from home is the first step to gaining some independence. Learn how to manage your finances, cook and of course work the washing machine.
Visit us at an open day to see the accommodation for yourself and to join in on an accommodation tour.
Guided by a student ambassador, they will tell you all about life at USW and what to expect whilst living in halls.
