Where to find last minute student accommodation in Cardiff

Applied through clearing , I want to apply to private accomodation as I am most likely going to have to share a bathroom in uni halls.

I know of Unite Students but does anyone know of any other private accommodations ?

Hi, this website has all of the private student halls in the area: https://www.cardiffstudents.com/advice/housing/finding/privatehallsofresidence/. However, most of the cheaper accomodation is already taken and you will have to join waiting lists to be in with a chance.

I would start looking for private accommodation if you haven’t already. I got an email last Friday saying that they’re unlikely to be able to provide accommodation for non-guaranteed applicants.

Is it still available? How much is it? Does it have an ensuite?

Hi there

Current Cardiff uni student here!

I'm sorry that you're in this situation. I've found flat mates last minute before through student accommodation facebook groups. Good options include Cardiff Students House Hunters or Overheard at Cardiff University. For this, I would just advise you to do your due diligence, triple-check the contract, be very aware of scams and quality of the house/ flat and try to have multiple calls with the other tenants and meet them if possible.

All the best
