    Hello.

    I live outisde the EU, but I am looking for a flat in
    Cardiff, because I will start Univesity in September.

    I looked through flat-search websites, and agents' websites
    and found the properties I need online. But what's next?

    When I called the agents I was
    told that I must be available for flat-viewing
    on dates when i cant be available in the UK.
    Some agents said that the flats advertised are
    no longer available. and Some agents did not
    respond to neither my calls nor my emails.

    What can I do?

    Do you know of good agents in cardiff that i should contact?
    any good flat-search websites recommended?
    What should a person in my situation do? given that I am abroad and will be in the UK on the 15/Sep. Any advise greatly appreciated! thanks.

    So, I assume you didn't apply for any University hall?

    I don't really recommend you try to organise private accomodation from a distance. Even if you do manage to get some viewings, the lack of time will force you to make a decision quickly and you might get ripped off.

    Why not get a room in private halls for the first year, or apply for Cardiff University Halls?

    For private halls, I recommend this company, it's good value and much better quality than Cardiff accomodation:
