As wonderful as the staff are, they do sometimes take a while to respond (but they do always respond). Knowing who to go to when you need help isn't always obvious. The night Scene in Lampeter isn't the greatest, the only club in the area is the SU.×

There is a local tesco not far by the university, food can also be brought in places like pound land, or even order and get asda delivered to the university itself. i would recommend that you go and visit the money people in student services, who there can set out a budget for any extra costs of living you need. Money runs out quickly especially if living on campus, as some student loans dont cover the costs of accommodation and leisure. there are limited jobs around Carmarthen due to locals as well as second and third years getting jobs in the summer. Before i attended university i wish i had been advised on the overall estimated cost for living and leisure as i feel i struggled a little at the beginning. I also recommend saving at least 200 for freshers, for lunch's pre-drink and all the activities. (They aren't free) If you aren't doing a sports degree there is a gym membership fee however not many people know but there is a swimming pool on campus which is free to all students.×

The accommodation here is very cheap compared to a lot of unis in big towns and cities. My first year accommadation was very cheap. There are extremly close to where the lectures are, so there are no worries about having to go far for a lecture. The rooms themselves are quite basic. Desk and chair, bed, sink, wardrobe, bookshelf, lamp, internet access and mains. A lot of things have broken in this dorm. I do not know anyone who has not experienced a problem with accommadation. The door frames are soo weak that many people have had to have the doors repaired. Window handles have broken off, some people have problems with the radiators and ALL THE BEDS SQUEEK. Repairs are for the most part speedy though. Another problem is that the heating is either on full blast or not at all. This means that you have the choice of blistering heat or arctic temperatures. Even despite these problems, I love my accommatadion. Everyone in the dorms are very close due to our close proximity, and generally no one is ever too bothered about the hundreds of problems (for the most part!).×

Being a small village meants that there a large amount of seasonal fresh food that is available - sometimes cheaper than the supermarkets, sometimes not. However there is a large amount of high quality take aways - the Indians are particularity good. The Union is the centre fo part time work, but costs of transport, if you don't own a car, can be very high - its now 6.50 for a return to either Carmarthen (25 miles south) or Aberyswth (20 miles North West)×

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
We’ve pinpointed the key sites where teaching takes place. Check in the smallprint of the course you’re interested in to see where exactly you’d be based, especially if there are multiple locations spread across a wide area.
