    Hi I'm thinking about applying for a position at Swansea University starting next year. I was wondering if anyone has and recommendations on housing in the area?

    One site I've looked at the I heard recommended to me was Swanseastudentlandlord.co.uk their properties don;t look bad, butit's kinda hard to tell from pictures, was wondering if anyone has ever used these guys or any others they've had a good experience with.

    Thank you.

    There are many letting agencies in Swansea. Fresh, Student Digz and a whole host on Mansel Street/ Walter Road.
    You say you are coming for a position do you mean as a lecturer or student and which subject are you doing. Basically there are 2 campuses about 5 miles apart. The main campus covers most things and students have traditionally lived in Sketty, Uplands and Brynmill as well as the marina. The new campus covers business and engineering and has no defined student area yet as most are travelling over from the traditional student areas. If you are going to the Bay campus Jersey Marine is a lovely small village close to the campus worth looking at.
    The areas generally considered nice areas in Swansea tend to be the Marina, Uplands, Sketty, Killay, Dunvant and the Mumbles area.http://r.search.yahoo.com/_ylt=A9mSs...dWuZ_FACtZeSM-

    Hi there,

    If you're thinking of living in a shared student house in surrounding areas of the university campuses, SAS Lettings (Student Accommodation Services) should be your first port of call. They are a joint venture between Residential Services and the Students' Union and will be able to help you find accommodation in the private sector.
