Any more opinions from Cardiff students on residences?
I'm not a Cardiff Student yet, but it sounds as though this is tailored more towards international students who need items such as these because it would be hard to bring it on a plane from their home country.
Yeah I didn't think it sounded worth it for the £300 extra.
Anyone know if there's anywhere to keep a bike at Talybont South and Talybont Court?
Both have bike sheds. You can get a key for a fiver for the year from the residence office once you are here. Otherwise, there are bike racks outside houses you can chain your bike up to- not as secure but loads of people do it.
when i went to visit cardiff, talybont seemed to be quite a way from the main uni buildings. is this an inconvenience at all for people?
Not really. The walk gives you a chance to catch up with your friends, and wakes you up in the mornings!! Its only 15 mins or so. You can always take a bike, or if you are reeeeaaally lazy take the bus. But thats so not worth it. If you want a residence right on the doorstep, try Aberdare Hall. Its right across the road from the Law building.
