Roy Jenkins Hall

Available to: undergraduates and postgraduates

A small hall of residence with car parking, close to local shops.


Roy Jenkins Hall is a small hall of residence less than a mile from the Cathays Park campus. It is close to a good local shopping area which includes two supermarkets.

One of the best things about Roy Jenkins Hall is that shops and public transport are close by which means everything you need is easy to get to. I found it fantastically easy to meet new people and make friends and the facilities were great.
