LGBT+ and allies


We strive to make the University a diverse and welcoming environment for all students.

We are a Stonewall Diversity Champion and are ranked 11th out of 100 employers in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index 2019. We are also recognised by Stonewall as a Top Trans Employer.

We hope students find all of our accommodation welcoming and offer support to help you settle in to life away from home. Our Residence Life team are dedicated to creating an inclusive community and bring students together through a range of activities. You can also access a range of student support and wellbeing services and find societies and groups who are specifically aimed at supporting LGBT+ students.

Accommodation options

We aim to continually improve our services and have been working with LGBT+ students on ideas to enhance their University experience.

Following student feedback some flats at Talybont North and Talybont South have been reserved for LGBT+ students and allies. This accommodation is offered as an option for students who would prefer to live with, or feel most supported living with, other LGBT+ students and/or allies.

If you identify as LGBT+ or as an ally of the community and would like to apply for this accommodation, please select this option on your online application.
