Our Apps

We've got two great apps to help make student life a little easier - CUSU Explore and Yoyo Wallet. Whether you want to find out What's On this week, or get access to some great special offers, we've got you covered. Keep scrolling to find out more! 

CUSU Explore

We’ve got everything all in one place. From club nights to Give It A Go, everything you need to know is right here in the app.

How do I download it?

Search ‘CUSU Explore’ in the app store to download the app for free. The app is available on Apple and Android.

CUSU Explore Leaderboard

Get involved with the games and work your way up the leaderboard. Every time you complete a challenge you’ll earn points which will be added to your profile. Throughout the year there will be various prizes up for grabs such as free stuff, food & drink vouchers for the Students’ Union and loads more.


As a city campus uni, Cardiff University is spread out across many parts of the city, so it’s likely that you might sometimes get a bit lost or need a bit of direction. We’ve got a handy map on the CUSU Explore app which will help direct you to anywhere within the university you need to go. Simply click on where you want to go and it’ll open up the map to show you how to get there.

What is Yoyo Wallet?

Yoyo is your new mobile wallet. With Yoyo you will make payments easier, faster and more rewarding. Yoyo wallet means no more cards, no more cash and no more paper loyalty cards or receipts!

How do I get it and use it?

The Yoyo Wallet app is available for Apple and Android mobile phones.

1. Search and download 'Yoyo Wallet' from the Apple or Android stores. 

2. Open the app, link a debit card and select Cardiff University Students' Union as the place that you'll be paying. 

3. When you get to the till at one of our food outlets or bars, open the app and click "Pay Now".
4.  The cashier will then scan your QR code. In one simple scan, you will pay and automatically get rewarded with points on every penny you spend (1 point per 1 penny). Each transaction will be debited directly from the card you have linked to your Yoyo Wallet, and can be found in 'the reciepts' button.
5. Everytime you spend money in the Union using the Yoyo app, you can save up points to treat yourself with a free coffee or free lunch. Plus, you'll get exclusive offers in our food outlets.
