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!

Great size and space for socializing. Kitchen was too small to cater for 8 to 12 people. Great rooms with double beds but shared showers. Brand new accommodation but has a cheap feel too it.

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

Weird people come to your windows because they require assistance having been in fights with knives. Be wary.

I wanted to move out at first but honestly, if you have good friends, I can't complain at all. Love our cleaning lady!
