Aberdare Hall

Available to: undergraduates and postgraduates

Our only all-female residence, ideally located right next to the Cathays Park campus.

Overview

Aberdare Hall was built in 1893 and retains many interesting period features. It is adjacent to the Cathays Park campus and offers both catered and self catered accommodation. During term-time, the catered option provides breakfast and evening meals Monday to Friday and breakfast at weekends.

Please note: although Aberdare Hall is a female-only hall of residence, male visitors are permitted to visit and stay overnight. Aberdare Hall also has male personnel who work within the Hall on a daily basis.

I really enjoyed the communal living with fellow students and the variety of people you live with. It is very easy to meet new people, and the fact that Aberdare Hall is catered is particularly helpful in this way. It is in a great location - only 5 minutes from the Students’ Union and 10 minutes from the city centre.
