|International Accommodation Award
We are delighted to provide new international students* with the International Accommodation Award, giving you the option of your on-campus housing either included in your tuition fee or discounted by £2,000. This housing scholarship is applicable for the duration of the taught element of your studies if you are studying a Bachelors degree, Masters degree or a Foundation course. In some cases PhD students may also be eligible.
The University has several different accommodation buildings. The housing scholarship is different depending on which building you choose. Places in Cwrt Mawr, the inclusive accommodation building, are limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, so be sure to pay your deposit as soon as possible and apply for housing. All other options include the £2,000 discount.
All on-campus rooms are single occupancy, meaning you will need to find alternative private accommodation in town if you plan to live in Aberystwyth with family members or dependants.
All on-campus rooms are inclusive of utility bills and Wi-Fi, with residents also benefitting from Platinum gym membership at the University’s Sports Centre.
The International Accommodation Award is only applicable if you choose to live in University-managed accommodation.
The number of weeks in your accommodation Occupation Contract is important, so always make sure you check it is for the duration while you study.
Bachelor’s students (UG): your accommodation will be available to you for 39 or 40 weeks. This means you will need to find alternative housing over the summer months before term starts again in September. This could be in town in private accommodation, or on-campus if there is space available – the accommodation office will be able to help advise.
Master’s students (PG): your accommodation will ordinarily be available to you for 50 weeks. If you wish to stay longer in Aberystwyth you will need to find alternative accommodation. This could be in town in private accommodation, or on-campus if there is space available.
PhD students (PG): if you are eligible for this housing scholarship, the license pack will be for 50 weeks. This means there will be two weeks in September where you will need to find alternative accommodation before the next term starts.
