Save on rent by showing your room during Open Days

By volunteering to show your flat, you are enabling prospective students and their families to visit our residences during the academic year on planned Open Days, as you may have had the opportunity to do when you were choosing your University.
Your participation also allows you to save £20 per event for each terms' residence fees.

The role of a Show Flat Resident

You will:

  • Have your accommodation (communal and bedroom areas) open, presentable and ready to be viewed by visitors during the times shown below. This is a contractual obligation as part of your agreement.
  • Welcome visitors to your accommodation on planned Open Days in a friendly manner, offering visitors an opportunity to view your room, en-suite (if applicable) and communal areas.
  • Talk about your positive experiences of living in a Swansea University residence. Prospective students really value the opinions of current students and want to hear what it’s like living in residences from your point of view.

You will need to ensure:

  • That kitchens, communal areas and bedrooms are clean, cleared of rubbish and trip hazards and bedroom doors are left open.
  • You take joint responsibility as a flat for keeping communal areas clean and tidy.
  • You report any repairs/damages as soon as you notice them.

To thank you:

  • Upon completion of all your scheduled viewings, you will be credited £20 per event that your accommodation is open for. This will be discounted from each terms' residence fees.
  • If you fail to open your room or cannot participate in the scheduled viewings, no discount will be applied.
  • Your flat will receive additional cleaning for Open Days by the cleaning teams.

Your availability:

  • We will contact you via email ahead of Open Days to remind you of this commitment.
  • We understand there may be reasons for being away from your accommodation during certain Open Days. It is important to respond to our email communications if you cannot participate for an event.
  • You should not leave your room door unlocked if you are not in the accommodation during the Open Day, and no remuneration will be provided.
  • Please note, if you are consistently unable to commit fully to the scheme, unfortunately, you may be asked to transfer to alternative accommodation which is not part of the Show Flat Scheme.
