The best part living in this hall of residence is that you never feel lonely. You find your group of friends from the first days living there. It is a hall that you have to share a bathroom with someone else, but as long as I lived there no-one had a problem sharing. Usually your bathroom-mate becomes your New Best Friend! On the other side, this hall is a bit overpriced for what it is.
It is actually really good if you get it through clearing, I was so worried when I got it but the rooms are really big and you only have to share a bathroom with one other person. There's only like 100 people in House A and House b so you get to know everyone really which is good. It is really social and an uber to the SU or town is like £4-6 that's not that bad. The walk to the uni is like 15 minutes. Met my best ones here so love it live it xoxo gossip girl
Many people haven't heard of Cartwright Court - but I always tell people that it's good value for money. The rooms are large (certainly bigger than at somewhere like Talybont), the reception staff are lovely, and it's a quieter area than other halls (but still very sociable if that's what you prefer). If you choose to share a bathroom with only one other person, it's almost like having an ensuite. There is no lounge area/tv, but the kitchen is very spacious with a large dining table and chairs. Hall management is generally very effective and the staff are kind. Occassionally the cleaner can come sporadically, and my flatmate and I have found mould on our bathroom ceiling which hasn't been dealt with. However, reception communicates effectively. The area itself is quite decent; location is halfway between cathays and heath campuses (around 20 mins walking to either), and cardiff centre is about 30 minutes. There are shops nearby on Albany road, or a cornershop 3 mins away
Cartwright Court is way too far out. It takes 20/30 minutes to walk to uni and the same distance to walk to the Heath campus. It is a 35 minute walk from talybont making it very difficult ( but not impossible) to participate in sports clubs, go to the gym and meet up with friends there. Honestly if you end up at Cartwright I would suggest thinking about requesting to move because you will have a better uni social life elsewhere as it is such a small halls and is far away from everything
Love it! Very social halls (we all go into each other's flats for pre drinks and so everyone knows everyone) but you're still able to sleep at night as it's not too loud. I live in a house yet my room is massive and the bathroom is big with a nice shower, however the kitchen is a little small. It's only a 15/20 minute walk from the uni, and it's right next to all of the good shops and some great bars. Highly recommend it!
