Rent expensive, library ok, Tesco too small, but no need to travel to lectures great experience nonetheless.

22 January 2019

Right on the beach, for walks or chilling out when it's nice weather, very close to lectures and everyone is within a 5 min walk of each other which is great for social life and meeting friends. Bar, shop and restaurants on site so plenty of resources and options for food and drink, halls are spacious and new with a large bed and ensuite. Up to 11 people per kitchen but extremely large kitchen with 8 hobs, 1 oven and 2 sinks.

I had a lovely en-suite room with a small double bed, the room was spacious and came with everything you need. The location was great for me as my courses were located on campus, but the campus itself is a bit out the way from the main city and is a long bus journey if courses are on Singleton.

The residence is obviously conveniently located. We have a tesco on campus and 24*7 security. The facilities in each flat ave been well planned in accordanc to the requirements of the students such as kitchen cleaning, gaarbage disposal, fire drills etc.

The rooms on campus are obviously conveniently located. Our in flat facilities are well planned accordinging to the needs of the students such as an oven, kitchen cleaning, waste disposal etc. The walls are a little thin so often you might be able to hear what the person in the other room is doing/saying. The beds are big (slightly smaller than a full size bed). A bulletin board has also been provided. Though the university could help us by attaching more hooks to the wall. All in all, I LOVE living on bay campus since everything is so convenient! It's safe and secure too.

Location has minimal shops and bars, not many events happen, room good size and nice kitchen/ on Suite

The halls of residence are on a very modern campus, and you are provided with all the necessary facilities on campus including a great student bar. Unfortunately the campus is not very close to the main city, but there are two excellent bus services to get you across the city. The Pen-Y-Bryn halls are in great condition with a large shared kitchen between 9 people. The rooms are spacious, clean and well decorated. The en-suite is a good size and has a good shower.

Very nice facilities and room, however location is a bit far out from anything, and the social aspect really isn't there I feel like apart from your flat it's difficult to find other people?

Very nice newly built halls of residence, good cleaning service and right on beach so during summer months feels like a hotel. Only gripe is that the location is very far from town and a bus pass is expensive.

The halls are in an ideal location for lectures on bay campus and there are regular, 24 hour buses into town and singleton campus. The accommodation is right on the beach and flats are big enough that even though there are not many places to go on campus, there is moee than enough space for parties/ pre drinks in the flat for large numbers.

Absolutely amaIng location! The beach is literally on your doorstep!! big flats of 6-10 so made loads of friends straight away!! The rooms were a decent size with a good layout and a perfect ensuit!! There was a good security system so I knew my things would be safe!!

The rooms themselves were very spacious and comfortable to live in. The kitchen also had a lot of space with facilities that catered for the needs of the flat and accommodated the whole flat. The en suite was great and I didn't have any problems with it. I loved my room on bay and would happily stay there for another year. There were also many places to socialise like the on campus bar/cafe 52 degrees and the on campus Tesco express made shopping easy.

Excellent accommodation new and modern! Brilliant lifestyle being 2 minutes from the beach ! Wish I could of lived in halls for my whole degree

The campus is very new and you can tell. The rooms and kitchens are very up to date with induction ovens. The rooms are spacious enough with a comfortable 3/4 bed. Some extra storage space in kitchens is needed. The cafe and bar is stylish and comfy and with a Tesco extra on campus you can always pop in and get the necessities.

Very expensive, however location is great for getting to lectures etc. There are not many social areas at the bay and the bars here are awful. Room size is good

24 April 2018

Room is lush! Biggest downside is the kitchen has very little cupboard/fridge/freezer space! Also you have to deal with people nicking your stuff. Comfy sofas and right next to all your lectures, so pretty tidy tbf. Flat parties are great if you like going out, not so much if you don't. Awful wifi though, eduroam doesn't stretch far enough and keysurf is always not working, especially in the kitchen.

Really nice modern accommodation. However the staff who enforce cleaning in communal areas only issue empty threats which is quickly learnt by students so they don't have any incentive to clean. Furthermore the kitchen is designed more for aesthetic than practicality as i was in a flat of 10 where there was only enough for half a small cupboard each. Clearly not enough. There was plenty of space for more cupboards in the room.Could do with more student bars and clubs in campus. But way too expensive.

20 March 2018

Really like how the buildings are brand new and the cafe is really good price wise. Good internet and the social areas are decent. The value for money is okay, however the halls are extremely expensive.

18 March 2018

The location is a little less than ideal being about a ten minute drive from town longer by bus. The facilities are great with its own gym, cafe and bar. It could be better with a club as well to improve the social experience. The standard rooms have plenty of space and a large desk. The kitchen has not plenty of cupboard space and lovely leather sofas!

Bay campus is a great way to find new friends and a great place to love near the beach. The only thing I did not like is that it’s quite isolated and isn’t very close to town. However the buses make it easy to navigate around.

Great location, especially if you are studying on this campus. The beach is literally a 2 min walk away and the main part of town is a ten min bus ride. There is an on site gym. The rooms are excellent, great double beds and en-suites, the rooms are always warm. The kitchen facilities are also great, being very spacious with 2 fridge freezers 2 hobs, large breakfast bar and 2 couches, with the only downside being limited cupboard space. The WiFi can be a bit slow at times, however I haven’t had a major problem with it. However the price for the room is quite expensive.

As me and all my other students say on Bay Campus, it’s an amazing place with brand new state of the art accommodation, shopping facilities and nightlife however it’s so far away from anything of interest unless you take the bus which still often takes a long time and a lot of organisation.
