Talybont Court

Available to: undergraduates and postgraduates

Part of the Talybont complex which is the largest of the University's residences.


Talybont Court is part of the Talybont complex which is the largest of the University’s residences and provides a range of social amenities including excellent sports facilities. This purpose-built development is situated close to large areas of parkland and is a short walk or cycle to most of the academic buildings.

I lived in Talybont Court during my first year of University. It’s slightly further away from town than some of the other halls but the standard is worth it! The rooms have plenty of storage, wireless internet access and an en suite bathroom. The living area is great for socialising with your flatmates and the breakfast bar makes for ideal communal meals.
