Postgraduate House Hunting Event 2018

• Wed 15 Aug 2018 14:30 - Fri 17 Aug 2018 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 are a letting agency who are owned and run by Cardiff University Students’ Union. Their service is completely free of charge and they do NOT charge any agency or admin fees.

This event is an excellent 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 accommodation for the new academic year with the help of Cardiff Student Letting and our Student Advice team.

The event, taking place between Wednesday 15th August and Friday 17th 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
  • Check into accommodation
  • Evening meal and social activity in a local pub

Thursday

  • Facilitated house 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

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