Cardiff University
7.9 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 85 ratings in 2018)
In a few words
"Student accommodations are quite far away from the uni (20 – 30 minutes for Talybont, 45+ minutes for uni halls) and very far away from town. The campus is located within the city which is great, but the Heath campus is very far away and students studying there can feel isolated from the students union opportunities."
