Student Houses (Colum Road/Place)

Available to: undergraduates and postgraduates

Perfect for the Cathays Park campus and the City Centre.


The University has a number of student houses located along Colum Road and Colum Place. They are conveniently located close to Cardiff Business School, Humanities Building, the Law School and the Cathays Park campus.

The facilities in our student house were great - large rooms, a well equipped kitchen and a comfortable house to live in! You are able to enjoy more independence and freedom and you are a short walk away from the city centre. It is a new experience that allows students to meet new people and enjoy a great place to live.
