Y Faenor is a community and electoral ward sharing a boundary with the town of Aberystwyth in Ceredigion, Wales. Faenor has two wards: 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. 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.
