Moving somewhere new is exciting, but it can also be a little daunting as you find your bearings, so be assured that there is a full support network for students living in University accommodation. Our dedicated team are here to support you.
Our Residence Life Co-ordinator and Residence Life Assistants are on hand to help you with all of your accommodation queries.
If you require any further support, please don’t hesitate to contact Residential Services.
The Residents’ Network (ResNet) is a joint venture between Residential Services and the Students’ Union. Its aim is to ensure that each student living in Residences can benefit from the best student experience possible at Swansea University.
ResNet is active throughout the academic year and the Residential Officers (ROs) will provide you with all the information you need about the Students’ Union events, Student Resident news and any up and coming campaigns for both the Union and the residential areas.
Money@CampusLife provides advice and guidance on all student money-related issues. For many students, starting university will be the first time they will have managed their own finances. Meeting this challenge successfully will help ensure students achieve their maximum potential whilst studying and will contribute to a positive student experience.
We assist Money@CampusLife in supporting students who come from a care background and work closely to ensure that the required support with regards to their accommodation needs is met, such as year-round accommodation.
We can also offer, where possible, a full choice from Residential Services' extensive range of room categories such as good value accommodation or a convenient location, whatever is the most suitable accommodation for their individual requirements.
International@CampusLife provides information and advice on non-academic matters, including immigration advice and services, to all international (non-UK) students and their dependents.
Welfare@CampusLife provides advice and guidance to students on a range of welfare issues including homesickness, culture shock, bereavement, bullying, harassment, relationship breakdowns and much more. Everyone has a different student experience when they start University. Be assured that we are just as concerned about students' welfare as we are about their academic studies and performance.
The Wellbeing team can help students experiencing difficulties and needing support. They can help you access the correct services to support you and your wellbeing when you need it most.
If you have a disability, medical condition or specific learning difficulty, contact the Disability team to find out more about the support that is available to ensure you have the same opportunities as everyone else. Learn more about the accommodation options and adaptations available for students with disabilities.
Student Hall Reps
The Student Hall Rep system is a partnership between the Students’ Union and Residential Services. We are keen to work with our students, hear our students voice and support our students with peer support to make change within residences.
The Student Hall Reps will work closely with key RS and SU members of staff and be supported in their roles to listen to their peers, voice change, improve engagement and support with events. If you are interested in making a change, supporting your student community within residences and learning new skills then apply today.
