Why use Accommodation for Students

Living in Carmarthen as a student

The seat of one of University of Wales Trinity Saint David’s campuses with 1,500 students on site, Carmarthen is according to some sources the oldest Welsh town. With a small population of 14,000, it lies on the beautiful River Tywi, making it a desirable destination for students and visitors alike.

With student body not being immensely populous, Carmarthen cannot boast too many accommodation venues provided by the university, with only two uni-run halls on offer. They offer affordably priced, self-catered, en-suite rooms, in modern as well as period buildings. Private halls are present, yet in small number too.

On offer from private providers are mostly rooms with shared facilities in various buildings, although some en-suite options are available too. This makes Carmarthen a perfect spot for other accommodation options, including individual renting from private providers who operate in the area. Now more than ever renting with a group of friends is a popular option, allowing for lower costs of rent and ability to choose flatmates. The price range and location can be chosen too when renting with one of Carmarthen’s landlords or agents, many of which can boast an excellent reputation in the area. One can expect flats, houses and apartments being on offer be it in the centre of town or on the outskirts. They are indeed a perfect options for those seeking to rent with friends or on one’s own.
