3.

Are short-term stays an available option in Swansea student accommodations?


Some providers offer short-term stays in Swansea student homes. Checking the availability of your student accommodation of choice during your desired period is recommended. You can also refer to a Casita accommodation expert to help you find accommodation that accepts short-term stays.

This mainly depends on your accommodation provider or landlord; many Swansea student accommodation options offer essential utilities such as electricity, water, and gas in the rent, while some also offer Wi-Fi and insurance at no extra cost.
