In a bid to provide competitive facilities, Aberystwyth University has invested £16.5m to transform one of its halls.

The new halls will accommodate 200 students in en-suite accommodation. Resources will include computer facilities, four common rooms, quiet study rooms and two meeting rooms. The aim is to provide accommodation that allows students to relax, socialise, study and perform in one space.

A university representative said: "Opening this opportunity now to make an application for a place in Pantycelyn Halls for the next academic year is an important development.

Without a doubt, these are Wales' best-known student halls of residence. It has great facilities and a unique community atmosphere. Despite the difficult circumstances at the moment, the renovation work is being delivered on time and it's important that prospective students book their place as promptly as possible.

Pantycelyn will be home to the Welsh language students' union, Undeb Myfyrwyr Cymraeg Aberystwyth, and all the other Welsh language societies. There will be nowhere better to be if you want to be part of a close-knit Welsh language community, enjoying brand-new facilities and a wide range of opportunities to socialise."
