Talybont South

Available to: undergraduates and postgraduates

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


Talybont South 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.

These halls are so big and have their own amenities on site so the social and study spaces and the university sports facilities are right on your doorstep. It is easy to walk to lectures and with so many people you cannot fail to find someone living there on your course.
