For the entire year I lived at the Old way centre in Swansea and during a world Pandemic, I have nothing bad to say about Oldway. Facilities that were unavailable to a student outside the accommodation were clearly compensated to anyone's best ability when circumstances with Covid improved. I have had nothing but excellent things to say about Oldway Swansea. From all the security staff, admissions team/reception, maintenance staff and cleaning staff, who provided moral support, excellent service and all the facilities a student needs it could offer as much as they could during a world pandemic, I thank you for everything. All the best.
Pros: - Friendly and helpful staff. - Great location. - Decent social spaces. - Excellent gym. Cons: - Automatic lights don't work properly so you spend half the time walking down pitch black hallways, which is unsafe for obvious reasons. - The fridges are rubbish. They're not very cold so things like milk go bad 5-6 days before their use by date. - There was an issue with the windows leaking whenever it rained, and it took them over 6 months to get it sorted. - The firealarm can go off up to 5 times a week, and sometimes as early as 2am. - There is an absolutely horrid smell on the 2nd floor. The carpets should be pulled out and the whole floor deep-cleaned. It honestly smells like the floor is lined with dead animals. - They say we get 24/7 security. However, they have given security extra tasks to do around the building so they have to leave the front desk for hours at a time. I wouldn't mind but they shouldn't advertise as having 24/7 security when that is not the case.
Honestly so happy that i got to stay in this accommodation, the facilities and all the staff are so great. its really an all inclusive accommodation. the building is always clean and the staff are always here to help with anything! Also, its close to both the train station and the bus station so its really easy to transport anywhere!
