We at the Students’ Union work closely with Met Res Life who provide the residential life programme for Halls students. We recommend looking at Res Life’s Twitter and Facebook to see what fantastic events they offer individually and what we collaborate on. Before moving to our halls, check out what you should bring with you to Cyncoed Campus, or Plas Gwyn
If you are living in Private Halls, then Cardiff Met offer some very important information on their website and in this CardiffMetHousing Facebook group which we recommend you join.
There are many students who commute with us here at Cardiff Met. Whilst one way of making friends on your course can be by living in halls with them, there are other ways too. Consider joining a society to find peers with a common interest. There are over 50 to choose from. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, the SU can help you form your very own society.
Spending time between lectures with fellow students is a great way of making connections. On some programmes, second-year students run Peer Assisted Learning Sessions for first years during the day. Whilst all students are welcome to attend, these PAL sessions can be the ideal environment for students who commute to study with others informally. There are also plenty of informal learning spaces around the University, including café spaces, library spaces and seating. This is all here to make you feel as comfortable as possible when you are on campus.
When you are a Cardiff Met Student, you can use i-zone for council tax exemption forms or log into your Student Room page and find the link within.
The Cardiff Met Accommodation Team and the Students’ Union run some events to help you make the best choices. Keep your eye out for the January Accommodation Fayre with their campaign, #don’trushtorent
Cardiff Digs give great information about moving in and keeping your house a happy one. If you are living off campus then here are some important tips to consider.
