Our residences

If you're looking for student accommodation in Cardiff city centre, Arofan House is the place to be. With events all year round and common areas to help you socialise, you'll be able to make friends for life. We have sociable en suite flats if you'd like to live with a group of like-minded students, or studios if you'd prefer a quieter option. Either way, you’ll get a much more luxurious experience than in standard halls of residence or at some of the other student housing in Cardiff.

Did we mention the residence is only a 10 to 20-minute stroll from Cardiff University and the University of South Wales? Plus, the Cardiff Metropolitan University is only a short bus ride away and the bus stop is right outside our door. Everything else you need is just a short walk away: supermarkets, shops, restaurants, entertainment and train stations (Cardiff Queen Street and Cathays).

The vibrant Welsh capital

Is Cardiff a good place for students to live? With more than 40,000 of them calling the city home, you bet it is. Choosing us for your student accommodation in Cardiff means you’ll be able to enjoy the city to the fullest whether you’re an avid sports fan, culture junkie or culinary explorer. As a global city, the Welsh capital offers just the mix of shops, restaurants, arts venues, pubs and clubs you’d expect, all wrapped up in a friendly, easygoing South Wales bubble.

From the high street to the vintage stores of Cardiff’s Victorian arcades, shoppers can snap up bargains to their heart’s content, before hitting the city centre for drinks. Sports fans can check out the action at Wales’ national stadium, The Principality Stadium (previously known as the Millennium Stadium) or follow the exploits of Cardiff City. And a trip to the iconic National Museum, where you can also pick up a bit of the Welsh language, should be on the list for anyone who loves culture and the arts. Cardiff is a place driven by creativity and curiosity, quite capable of captivating students during stays of any length in the city.

Living with us

Our En Suite rooms come in a range of sizes to suit your budget, but whichever you choose, you’ll enjoy your own private space complete with a double bed and a swanky en suite bathroom. There is also plenty of secure storage. The en suite rooms link onto a communal kitchen/diner area, where you can spend time with your friends or get to know new people in the course of moving in. It’s truly the best of both worlds and the best option for quality student accommodation in Cardiff.

We also have Studio options, ranging in size up to a massive 27m2. These are big enough for two people to live in, so they’re perfect for couples or best friends - dual-occupancy is available as an option. The social spaces at this residence are second to none, with a spacious common room available all day round, plus a TV room with a widescreen television and pool table. Outside, there’s a lovely courtyard, where in the summer months we get together for barbecues and good times. This is much more than your average university halls!
