Welcome

Welcome

From your first day, we’re here to help you feel at home; from finding lifelong friends, to trying a brand new activity or hanging out with your housemates at one our events, you’ll find lots to keep you busy.

We know this year Freshers’ may be a little different but that doesn’t stop us planning some incredible events, evening entertainment and even virtual activities for you to enjoy. We are at the heart of student activity and we are putting your safety first by abiding by government guidance but also making sure you can have opportunities to meet people in a way that is safe for you. We will have some house rules to help keep you and others safe, and while capacity is limited, we need you to make sure you book beforehand to avoid disappointment.

Our legendary in house pub The Taf will be reopening its door to students from Monday 21st September with delicious food and awesome drinks deals!

You can book a table for The Taf here.

We’re also hosting some great events in Y Plas, our very own night club. Although you won’t be able to dance until the early hours (as everyone has to follow the government guidance) – we promise it will be the only place for you and your housemates to be this Freshers!

While we plan all the fun we do ask that you book a table before you attend and download our app so that you can enjoy your whole evening from the comfort of your designated table.

All events are seated only, please make sure you follow the House Rules when attending our venues

Distanced & Virtual Events

Distanced & Virtual Events

We know that some of you may need to isolate when you arrive at University or you may not be ready to go out and socialise just yet, which we completely understand. That is why we will be hosting a variety of virtual events so you can enjoy Freshers’ from the comfort of your own home (loungewear optional).

Our incredible Give it a Go team have put together a range of events, including virtual drop-ins hosted by our very own sports clubs and societies, giving you the chance to find out more and chat to them. You can also join some of our amazing Cardiff Volunteering projects for virtual and socially distanced events over the next few weeks.
