    Hey guys, Im looking for accommodation that is 4800 per year or below and not too far away from where the engineering course will take place, which would be the best choice for me? (im going through clearing so might not get it anyway but might as well put it as my first choice)

    It is not really going to happen as most of the accommodation is more than that. Your best option if available is the accommodation on the Bay Campus. Anything else will involve bussing and a £300 per year ticket. The only alternative would be Hendrefoilan Student Village which is 6 miles away. You could also try getting into a student house which would be cheaper if you can find someone to share with and would be within the budget set. There are numerous letting agencies in Swansea who specialise in Student letting and it might be worth trying them. Alternatively try the university's accommodation offices. Major agencies are based in Mansel Street and Walter Road and include Fresh Student Letting, Swansea Let, One Stop Letting Shop, My Pad, Student Digz and Students4Swansea.

    A major problem you will face is the lack of housing around the Bay Campus. You could live in Port Tennant a 20 minute walk away but that really isn't at the moment a student area. Alternatively you could look at the traditional areas of Brynmill, Uplands and bus across which is probably the best affordable option.
