Welcome to Colony Living. Our mission is to help breathe a new lease of life into the shared accommodation market in Swansea, offering affordable modern rooms to ensure a better, more comfortable life when studying or working in this amazing city.
What is shared accommodation?
Shared accommodation, or shared housing is where a number of individuals live within the same property but have their own personal, private bedroom, but have use of shared spaces within the accommodation which will include communal areas, bathrooms and kitchens.
What's the benefit of sharing a house?
Furnished - Being able to move straight in to a property as a student or young professional without having to buy your own bed or bedroom furniture is an advantage that our tenants love.
Bills included - with the cost of living crisis escalating it's reassuring for our tenants to know each month exactly what their outgoings will be.
Co-living is ideal for students attending Swansea University or young professionals having recently graduated and taking the first step from leaving home with their parents.
