There’s not really anything they can improve upon. All the staff are so lovely, and run events for us. In particular Ellie and Lauren. The night staff are great too!! Love this place so much I stayed 2 years in a row. Would definitely recommend :)

Q&A


Q
What mattresses do you use? And is there an option to swap the mattress for one I bring with me if I can't cope with it? (I have a very bad back). How far is the nearest swimming pool to Swanston House? Do you get many post grad students living here?

Q
Do you cater for students that may have a child ?
By member446865 On 20th March 20
Hi, thank you for your question. We don't cater for children under the age of 18 by regulation, I'm sorry. All the best

Q
Do you have accommodation for families?
By member946680 On 11th March 20
Hi, thanks for your question. We have the potential for dual occupancy in our studio rooms, if the main tenant is a registered student and both individuals are over 18. We don't have family accommodation, however. I hope this helps.

Student Review: 4.7 /5
By member1168090 On 12th April 22

Swanston House was the perfect choice for my first year in Uni in Belfast. Its in the city centre and so you've got everything around you. Queens is a 20min walk or a 5min bus ride which isnt too bad. Ensuite bronze rooms are a decent size. The kitchen is better than Elms BT9 as you only have the share with 5 others. Everything is modern in the building and the staff are great. They do movie nights roughly 3 times a month so you can make friends and other social events, eg a hot chocolate station or tote bag decorating once to twice a month. You feel very safe with there always being someone at reception and the key card system. The only reason im not staying on is that now Ive been in Belfast for a year I found a house closer to Queens to share with friends for much cheaper. If you're looking for the convience of all your bills in one, being in the city and the safety of being in an apartment complex and youve got the money to spend, Swanston is perfect.

Our flat unfortunately had no hot water and was not fixed until 17 weeks after first communicating the issue to reception. There was a severe lack of communication during this period. We were offered very little compensation compared to the price we paid for the year when the issue was eventually resolved. Furthermore 2 staff members entered our flat without notice or permission and gave no explanation of why they came in. Again, little was done to investigate this matter which was disappointing.

I have loved living at Swanston House this year, the staff have made it a really welcoming place to live and I have enjoyed taking part in the events such as the bauble decorating today and chatting to Ellie who has made it really fun and easygoing :)

Swanston House is amazing. It has been my second home for two years. The staff are so friendly especially 'Nina'. She helped me a lot to choose the best room for me which helps me to settle faster and never felt homesick. It has been really a good experience with Swanston house as it has the best location in the city centre and awesome staff.

It's a beautiful building and I felt like it was a lot better than the new queens elms accommodation which I stayed in last year as that accommodation was all white and it felt a little bit prison like. The staff here are wonderful and always ready to help and the common room was great. My room was great, I had a big wardrobe which was a huge upgrade from my queens room. However, I stayed in a studio room, which was great, on the ground floor but if I had the choice I would have never stayed on that floor. Almost every night people would be coming home from nights out and they were so loud. I would frequently have people banging on my door and screaming at all times of the night and I was very thankful that I could lock my door from the inside. So I would recommend a studio room, but absolutely not on the ground floor!

Swanston House is brilliant for the location and is the closest accommodation to the city centre, you really can’t get any closer. This makes having a job in the city centre/Victoria sq. so much more accessible and easier. I couldn’t commend the staff of Swanston House anymore! Each member brings their own personality to the table and every one of the is committed to ensuring this student accommodation is home. The events at Swanston are brilliant and make is easier to socialise with a variety of students outside your flat which is perfect if you live alone in a studio, like I do. I really couldn’t recommend this place anymore for any of your years of undergrad or postgrad studies. Thank you SH.
