About Swansea

Sitting on the sound coast of Wales on the mouth of the River Tawe, Swansea is the second largest city in Wales and 25th largest in the UK. Known historically for its Copper industry, Swansea is now a commercial and business hub. Swansea is home to 20,000 students and offers a great nightlife, good transport links and access to the beautiful South Wales countryside.

Popular Student Areas of Swansea


Uplands is a very popular student area for both Swansea University and Swansea Metropolitan students. Walter Road is a particular popular road with a number of properties available to students.


Brynmill is known for its hills but the area also offers a great range of house share options and is therefore popular with students, especially those looking for larger houses.


Sketty offers great value for money with slightly less quality than some other areas. Slightly further outside the city but perfectly located for the Swansea University campus so it’s great for those who are looking to roll out of bed and straight into lectures.
