    Go private, there are loads in Cardiff!
    How does that work as an international student? When i studied in London I was warned not to rent private first year as I could not go and see the places for myself and there are lots off fraud going on. Or is it worth checking into a hostel for a week or two while flat hunting?

    Hey They are all very good accommodation choices however it depends on what quality you were after, like liberty is the best for quality!

    Hi, I'm soooo stuck between Colum Hall and Talybont South.

    Which one would you recommend and why??

    I'll need to travel to Newport whenever I have lectures, if that is important in any way .

    Hi Daisy

    I have been offered a place at Cambrian point and have been trying to find out a bit more information regarding the mix of students etc and the social. I'm a first year student and from what I can see there seems to be a lot of post grad and international students there, I want to make sure I'm going to be do where there is a bit of social going on. Do the uni put first years together? Would they put me in a flat with all international students? Also as some of friends have hit a place in tally will they be able to visit me - as I've read security is high? I'm a but of a worrier as you can tell!!! Thanks Clare

    Im afraid this is not uncommon, as cardiff allocate accomodation based on when your offer came through as unconditional and when you applied people often get lower choices, you should be really lucky though because some people dont even get one of their 12 choices...

    Asking to be relocated usually means you will forfeight your first accomodation offer and then there is no gaurantee they will relocate you or offer you any accomodation at all. I would advise you to just stick it out where you are, if you ask for relocation they are not going to be able to allocate you to one of your top 3 choices or else they would have done that in the first place, your top 3 choices must be full sadly.

    where is it you have been allocated?

    Can't believe I got put into my 4th choice! I'm not accepting it. No way am I staying at Talybont North. It's far from the Uni, the rooms are tiny.. I'm going to contact them to ask to reallocate me. I thought they'd at least put me in my 3rd choice. I would have preferred Aberdare or even Gordon hall if I'd know they were gonna put me in North.

    What were your third, second and first choices? North was my third and after some consideration I'm perfectly fine with it, the buses run quite often and I've been doing 20 minute walks to school for ages now. The rooms aren't any bigger in South and Court costs £500 more.
