2016

"It's right by the beach and also just a stones throw away from the Gower Peninsula, which is a wonderful place. The town is not too big, which is nice, but also there is a lot to do. The library is great as there are many books and plenty of quiet spaces to work."
"The student accommodation is pretty decent if you can get in early. Campuses are just above average with the new campus being aesthetically pleasing but not quite as practical as the old one."
"A city location that's by the beach. Good student accommodation and excellent sports facilities."
"The city is boring but accommodation is on campus and good."
"The new Bay Campus is out of town, which isn't great. The campus is getting better as it has not been around long so there are still some teething issues. The extracurricular facilities are not great but the curricular ones are and the student accommodation on campus is excellent but expensive."
"The location is right on the beach with all the facilities needed to live on campus so it's not ever necessary to leave. The city centre is also only a small distance away. The facilities on campus are of the highest standard and anything you require can be found. Student accommodation is excellent in quality and reasonably priced."
"It's kind of in the middle of nowhere and there's no parking for students."
"The main campus is very close to the town and all facilities. Bay Campus is quite far but there's fairly good public transport."
"It's a 20-minute walk to the city centre and a one-minute walk to the beach. The uni gym is brilliant and the library has everything you need. The student village is a 15-minute bus ride from the campus but living there was one of my favourite uni experiences! So much fun."
"The location of Singleton campus is incredible and the accommodation there is lovely. However, the village is a 45-minute walk away or a 15-minute (quite expensive) bus journey."
