Accommodation and moving here
Once you have a firm offer to study with us, you can then apply for a place in University residences.
To book your accommodation, you'll need your SIMS username and password, which we will email to you after we have made you an offer to study.
Undergraduate students who selected Cardiff University as either their firm or insurance choice are guaranteed University accommodation in their first year.
International and Exchange students
As a full degree international student you are guaranteed a place in University residences for the duration of your studies.
As an Erasmus+ student you are guaranteed a place in University residences if you are studying with us for a full academic year. If you are with us for less than an academic year you may still apply for a room in University residences but you are not guaranteed a place. If you are an Erasmus+ student coming to Cardiff for the autumn semester only and would like advice about finding accommodation in the private sector, please contact the Erasmus+ team: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are a full session International Exchange or Study Abroad student, you are also guaranteed a place in University residences. For further advice, please contact email@example.com.
Please visit the accommodation web pages for details of the residences guarantee deadlines.
