Overall I think I am satisfy with living my first year of university at Swansea University in the Singleton Park campus. I live in a small room in a traditional en-suite style in Preseli. What I like best of my room is it’s view, I live on the top floor, and I could see the sea through my windows. However, having a room that is on the top floor facing the sea also result in extreme heat and Sunday’s during the days, and it could be unbearable during the summer times. The location of the halls is also really convenient, it is really close to the lecture theatres, library, laundrette, Singleton hospital etc.. And you can also travel by foot to the city centre or Uplands. A drawback of living in an old building would be that the facilities may not be as good. For example, the WiFi. I live in a flat of 20 people sharing two kitchens, which is fine and also that we could easily find someone to socialise with. However, there is no common room therefore we rely on our two kitchen to make most of our social interactions. Furthermore, there aren’t a single window in our kitchen and the ventilation is not working that well which makes it not very pleasant to stay in the kitchen during times where it’s really warm and when someone burnt their stuff or cook something really pungent. (We used to all cry when someone is cutting an onion in the kitchen). Overall, I do recommend first year students or exchange students living on the campus.
