Adjusting to life in Cardiff

Living abroad is a big step, and it does take time to adjust, but we are here to support and offer help should you need it.

Self-isolating in University accommodation

When you arrive in the UK, you will need to self-isolate in your University accommodation for the first 14 days unless you're arriving from an exempt country.

This is because it can take up to 14 days for coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms to appear.

If you’re travelling from an exempt country you will not need to self-isolate. You should check the list of exempt countries before you travel.

Supporting you during self-isolation

Os ydych chi'n fyfyriwr rhyngwladol neu fyfyriwr o'r UE, byddwch yn cael eich stafell eich hunain pan fyddwch yn cyrraedd. Bydd wedi'i hawyru'n dda, yn cynnwys ffenestr y gellir ei hagor, a bydd ar wahân i'r mannau byw eraill yn y fflat neu’r tŷ rydych yn byw ynddo.

Os bydd angen i chi hunanynysu ar ôl cyrraedd, byddwn hefyd yn rhoi pecyn o hanfodion i chi, gan gynnwys bwyd, dillad gwely ac eitemau cegin.

Self-isolating guidelines

Self-isolating means you will need to follow these guidelines within your University accommodation:

  • You will need to avoid contact with the other students you are staying with (unless they travelled with you) and minimise the time you spend in shared spaces like the kitchen/dining room and shared bathroom. Avoiding contact in this way, for the first 14 days of your stay, will reduce the risk of transmitting coronavirus (COVID-19).
  • If you have selected or are allocated shared shower/toilet facilities, then you and the other students you are staying with will need to thoroughly clean the facilities after each person has used them.
  • You will also need to make sure you keep your towels/linens separate from the other students you are sharing with, both for drying yourself after bathing or showering and for hand-hygiene purposes.

If you do not have any coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms after 14 days, you will be able to stop self-isolating and then continue to follow the same rules as people who live in the UK and specifically Wales.

Stay updated on requirements for self-isolating when entering the UK.
