This year's House Hunting event has now taken place.
If you still require accommodation for this year, please refer to our main Accommodation pages or contact the Residences Team on (0)29 2087 4849.
We will be holding next year's House Hunting event in August 2014. Please see below for an example of what it involves.
The Postgraduate House Hunting Event is aimed at new and current Cardiff University postgraduate students who are looking for shared rented accommodation for the next academic year.
In just three days, we will guide you through the process of meeting new housemates, finding accommodation to suit your needs and signing along the dotted line. The event will also provide you with the opportunity to get to know your fellow postgraduates and sample Cardiff’s vibrant social scene!
The House Hunting Event 2013 took place on Wednesday 14th - Friday 16th August 2013. We will be holding our next event in August 2014.
The House Hunting Event is organised by the Postgraduate Recruitment Office in conjunction with the Graduate Centre and the Students' Union.
The full event schedule is now published, please refer to the 'Resources' box in the right hand column.
Here's an outline of the activities, but please refer to the event schedule:

The House Hunting 2013 event has now taken place. We will be holding our next event in August 2014. Booking information will be provided nearer the time.
Please remember that teaching placements for PGCE students are in and around Cardiff and, for some students, it may be better to locate outside Cardiff for Part 2 of the course (January until the end of May). It therefore may not be advisable for you to enter into a long-term contract with a landlord in August.
This event is not aimed at students who are seeking short-term lets. Students seeking short-term lets are welcome to attend but you should note that these are usually not released by landlords until end August/beginning of Sept.
The Students' Union Advice & Representation Centre (ARC) maintains a list of private accommodation which is available to rent and which includes those available for short-term let. For further information about short-term letting in Cardiff please contact ARC by email email@example.com, phone 029 2078 1410 or visit their website.
Continuing postgraduate students who are looking for shared rented accommodation for the remaining year/s of their postgraduate study at Cardiff University are welcome to attend this event.
Wednesday 13th - Friday 15th August 2014
A booking form will be made available nearer the time.
