Postgraduate students may wish to opt for accommodation in Residences or to opt for Private Sector accommodation. Students choosing Private Sector Accommodation or who are coming to Aberystwyth with dependents are advised to consult the Private Accomm Database and/or contact the Accommodation Office.
Students applying for Residences should note that wherever possible postgraduates are allocated accommodation together within Residences.
The Accommodation Office administers a central online system for applications to the Residences and University Managed Properties.
1st year postgraduates The accommodation office will automatically send out a letter inviting applicants to apply online for university accommodation as soon as the Admissions Office informs us that your application is fully complete i.e. when all academic and financial checks are found to be satisfactory. Guaranteed first year accommodation if you apply before the 1st September.
Returning postgraduates The online application system will be available in late November/ early December for returning postgraduates to apply for Residences. Notification of the exact time and date that the applications open will be posted on the weekly email to students. See also arrangements for students taking a year out.
All students are asked to respond immediately to any offer of accommodation; this ensures all student applications are processed as speedily and efficiently as possible. Every effort will be made to house students in their first choices of Residence but obviously it will not be possible to meet these preferences in every case.
All students wishing to remain in residence during the Summer vacation will be required to relocate to the Summer Residence.
