Postgraduate House Hunting Event

Students' Union • Wed 16 Aug 2017 13:00 - Fri 18 Aug 2017 12:00

Cardiff University Students’ Union has teamed up with our very own letting agency to deliver this specific house hunting event for Postgraduates coming to Cardiff to study. Cardiff Student Letting is an ideal starting point for your house hunt. They charge no agency fees as standard, and are owned and run by Cardiff University Students’ Union. This event seeks to provide you with an opportunity to come to Cardiff, explore the city, and meet other postgraduates about to start their studies. The main focus of the event is for everyone to meet each other and secure your accommodation for the new academic year with the help of Cardiff Student Letting and our Advice team on hand for additional support with any letting contracts. 

The event, taking place between Wednesday 16th August and Friday 18th August will include:

Wednesday
•    Refreshments on arrival
•    Welcome and introduction talks 
•    Information from the Student Advice Service, Cardiff Student Letting and the elected Vice President for Postgraduate Students
•    Social and mixer activities to meet other students and welcome you to Cardiff
•    Evening meal and social activity in The Taf

Thursday
•    Facilitated viewings and support provided by Cardiff Student Letting.
•    Full support to sign up to tenancy agreements

By this point you will have found a few new friends and have formed your housing groups. We want you to see as much of Cardiff as possible so there is no evening meal planned on Thursday. We encourage you to take advantage of some of the great places in and around the city to explore and find something to eat. 

Friday
•    Further facilitated viewings and support provided by Cardiff Student Letting
•    Full support to sign up to tenancy agreements
