Aberystwyth University

The original university building in 1872, now used for administration. The purpose built campus and arts centre, along with student village is a little further from the town centre next to the National library of Wales, but not more than a mile away. Also the last few buildings seen on the left are also student accomodation, not bad to have a flat overlooking the sea. My son did his degree in computer science here.

A fine light John.
John Prior: Thanks Les
I applied to go there in 1967. They rejected me....which was probably a wise decision on their part
John Prior: Thanks Bill, when we were looking at universities with my son, Aberystwyth came as a complete revelation to us all even though we had visited the town previously while on holiday, one rainy day and found it dismal.
