Faenor is a community and electoral ward sharing a boundary with the town of Aberystwyth in Ceredigion, Wales.[2]

Faenor also has two community wards which elect 12 councillors to Faenor Community Council: One covers Waunfawr and most of the student village Pentre Jane Morgan of Aberystwyth University, while the other covers Comins Coch, Capel Dewi and Lovesgrove. [3]

Most of the houses in Faenor were built from the 1960s onwards to house the expanding population of Aberystwyth and its University. Pentre Jane Morgan is purpose-built student accommodation on land which used to be part of the University farm until the 1990s.
