Liberty Fields had amazingly friendly, fun and helpful member of staff but at reception and on the maintenance team. The security team was also lovely. The reception staff (especially Sophie & Alex) made an effort to make the students living here feel welcomed and valued. They organised loads of great events and fun competitions such as Easter Egg hunts, Chinese New Year problem solving & Glitter socials in the common room! You could always go to reception for a natter about the day or any problems you are experiencing with your flat and they would chat through resolutions with you. I had a blast while I was living at Lib Fields!
Very unsociable. Terrible place to be for first year. I hate it here (I’m first year Cardiff Uni). Go to Talybont, you’ll actually make friends there. I felt depressed living here through my first semester, and only got out of it by joining socials and clubs. But every time I come back to my room I feel isolated and down. The WiFi is abysmal. Always needing to reconnect. Also you don’t get service here. I have to go outside of the gates to get phone service (which is extremely inconvienent)! Management is okay. They have their favourites. Kinda blunt people. Cleaniness is great here. Maintenance are always on top of things. They do weekly fire drills and they can get on your nerves at 10am. Bike storage is good. They use key fobs which is annoying. You can only get in and out with the key fob. So if you have friends over you’re constantly needing to go outside to open the bloody gate (which is heavy). Overall it’s okay here but very isolated and unsociable
This hall is really nice and modern to live in, though a tad expensive. There isn't any communal cleaning, but it's not hard to keep things nice and hygienic so long as everyone chips in. The biggest negative, is that the soundproofing is basically non-existent. If you're not on the top floor...good luck, hope you get someone who sleeps through the night. People loitering in the courtyard will keep you up until they move, because shutting the window does nothing (hope you get a room facing the back, or don't have any early mornings or need sleep.) So basically, if you want quiet, I wouldn't go through the lottery here. It's not worth the risk.
Everything is very modern and spacious, with large ensuite bathrooms and double bed. The kitchens are amazing with brand new appliances (better than my kitchen at home). Right in the centre of town ,so great for nights out, and close to the new business campus. About a 15 minute walk to the Parkgate campus but it goes quickly as the walk is through the town centre. Nicer than any of the other accommodations i have seen as it has everything!! mostly second and third year students.
it was the worst experience ever! the people in the reception were rude and not bothered by any complaints we gave them. maintenance men would just barge into your room without waiting for your 'come in' reply. i would highly recommend living in liberty halls because my my friends have loved it there.
Victoria Halls are excellent, situated just outside of Cardiff city centre (10 minute walk or 2 stops on the bus) makes it great for accessing everything Cardiff has on offer! The staff are extremely accommodating and always happy to help with any problems you may encounter! I had a Deluxe room and it was everything I was hoping for; it was very spacious and well maintained. In addition, the extra money for a double bed was completely worth it and would definitely advise it! Overall Victoria Halls was the perfect home for my first year at Cardiff Met!
