Renting to Students in Swansea

Swansea University is an ever-growing, world class University. Over the two campuses, Singleton Park & Bay Campus, 20,000 + students are enrolled. The addition of the Bay Campus has not only boosted the popularity of the University but also created 2000 + rooms. New accommodation blocks are being added to the campus in order for University to cease using the Hendrefoelan Student Village site located in Sketty. Student Properties around the central Swansea areas have been increasing to keep up with the demand of 2nd & 3rd year students who are not housed on campus. In recent years, there have also been a number of privately owned student blocks popping up.

Area’s that are popular with students for the Singleton Campus are Brynmill, Uplands & Sandfields. For Bay Campus, The Port Tennant & St Thomas areas as well as the City Centre are closer. Sketty & The Marina are often more catered to Postgraduate students.


If you are looking to purchase a house in Swansea for students, you must adhere to Swansea Council rules on HMO properties. Information on this can be found here.

You must also ensure you are registered as a landlord on Rent Smart Wales here.

Swansea University would also appreciate if potential landlords took fellow residence issues into consideration. Highly populated student area’s are a concern of local residents and the University are actively trying to build on community relationships.
