All our accommodation is self-catering. Click on the hall names below for more details, including videos and virtual tours of the facilities, contract length and price.

En-suite halls (newer style)

The halls below are of a similar design to each other. They’re all ensuite rooms with kitchens shared between 8 students. There is typically one large room per flat which is available at an additional cost. These blocks were built in 2007/2008 and are our most recently renovated on the Ffriddoedd Village.

En-suite halls (original style)

The halls below also contain ensuite rooms with kitchens shared between 8 students and are centrally located in our Ffriddoedd Village. These blocks were built in the late 1990s and are therefore slightly cheaper than the above halls.
