Talybont Gate

Available to: undergraduates

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


Talybont Gate is a brand new, modern development with large communal areas in flats and extra facilities included.  It 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 is situated close to large areas of parkland and is a short walk or cycle to most of the academic buildings.

Living in Talybont Gate made the transition from home so much easier. It may be one of the more expensive accommodations, but I really feel like it is great value for money as you get spacious rooms with double beds and en-suites!
