The multi award-winning student accommodation brand – true student – will open its doors to in Swansea this September. Owned by The Bricks Group, who currently operate across student, co-living and hotel sectors, the experience-led true student brand already manages more than 4,500 beds across the UK. 

true Swansea will offer an unrivalled, all-inclusive living experience that’s set to shake up the way students have been living in the city. The £90m landmark purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) development will include 706 luxury bedrooms across four unique blocks – which are securely interlinked with outdoor and courtyard spaces totaling a prime 2.85-acre site. The sheer size and scale of true Swansea ensures no comparison when it comes to students finding a home and lifestyle to create lifelong memories, relationships and opportunities.  

The PBSA development is on Morfa Road – overlooking the River Tawe in the heart of the Hafod Copperworks area. The scheme is conveniently located North East of the city centre, providing easy access to both of Swansea’s universities, transport, leisure and retail facilities with a new dedicated bus stop constructed at the entrance. Swansea Bay, the Maritime Quarter and marina are a short walk away – making it the ultimate base for all with regular connections across the city and stunning Gower coastline. 

Swansea University’s waterfront campuses make it one of the country’s most desirable locations for students from around the world, yet the supply of high-quality PBSA in the city to date remains relatively low with little choice to meet the surging demand of record growing student numbers.

true Swansea residents will benefit from all-inclusive, on site amenities – which include a festival zone, legendary slide, cwtchy picture house, multiple themed sky lounges, dedicated library and quiet study areas, pantry and café, come dine with me kitchens, welcome hub, managed laundry, secure parking and cycle storage. There is also a 24/7 wellbeing centre – packed with state of the art equipment and latest trend purposed fitness zones and studios for 1:1, small and large group classes supported by personal training partners.
