Welcome to Cardiff University and your Residence Life Site

Hello new student! No matter which university accommodation you are in, the Residence Life Team aim to build a sense of community amongst new students. We are here to help you with your transition to University life, find your place at Cardiff University and to help you with any concerns you might have about living here. We have so many opportunities to kick-start your engagement with the social side of living in halls, and our Residence Life Assistants can advise you on how to make the most of living here and how to feel part of the Cardiff University Halls Community.
