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 Erasmus+ students
As an international student you are guaranteed a place in University residences for the duration of your studies as long as you apply in time.
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.
