The 2015 House Hunting event will take place 12th - 14th August.
If you'd like to learn more about last year's event, take a look at the information below.
The Postgraduate House Hunting Event is aimed at new and current Cardiff University postgraduate students who are looking for shared rented accommodation for the next academic year.
The event is specifically aimed at UK/EU students as International students are guaranteed a place in University Halls of Residence.
In just three days, we will guide you through getting to know new housemates whose interests and lifestyles will complement yours, finding accommodation to suit your needs and signing along the dotted line.
The event will also provide you with the opportunity to make new friends among your fellow postgraduates and sample Cardiff’s vibrant social scene!
The 2014 House Hunting Event took place Wednesday 13th - Friday 15th August. The 2015 event will take place Wednesday 12th - Friday 14th August.
The House Hunting Event is organised by the Postgraduate Recruitment Office in conjunction with the Graduate Centre and the Students' Union.
Here's a typical schedule for the event:
Please note if you have only booked two nights' accommodation, you will need to vacate your room by 10am. A secure room in the Graduate Centre will be available for you to store your bags after checking out.
We asked last year's House Hunters if they would recommend the event to others. The result? 100% of respondents said 'YES'!
Please remember that teaching placements for PGCE students are in and around Cardiff and, for some students, it may be better to locate outside Cardiff for Part 2 of the course (January until the end of May). It therefore may not be advisable for you to enter into a long-term contract with a landlord in August.
This event is not aimed at students who are seeking short-term lets. Students seeking short-term lets are welcome to attend but you should note that these are usually not released by landlords until end August/beginning of Sept.
The Students' Union Advice & Representation Centre (ARC) maintains a list of private accommodation which is available to rent and which includes those available for short-term let. For further information about short-term letting in Cardiff please contact ARC by email firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 029 2078 1410 or visit their website.
Continuing postgraduate students who are looking for shared rented accommodation for the remaining year/s of their postgraduate study at Cardiff University are welcome to attend this event.
Wednesday 13th - Friday 15th August 2014.
