The team always want to ensure our residents feel welcome and safe - whether that is through running the wellbeing events, having a cuppa and a chatta or ensuring the building is clean. We are sorry to hear the things picked up regarding Block D. We will feed this back to the team and will take them on board. Thanks again - The Arofan House Team :)

It’s been super hard over lockdown but the team here have made it so much better! Lovely sociable accommodation, I’ve met the best people! A suggestion would be to add more study spaces and plan more socially distanced events!

Hello, thank you for leaving us a review! Yes, this year has been difficult, but as a team we have tried to ensure that as residents you still have the best experience so we are glad to see we helped. We definitely want to run more socially distanced events, so now the restrictions have eased a little more, this is definitely in the pipeline so keep an eye out for our wellbeing event calendars around the building to see what is coming up soon. Thanks again - The Arofan House Team :)

I have lived at Arofan House for 4 years now and it has been the greatest experience ever. It truly feels like my home away from home. The staff are lovely, especially Lewis and Stewart - they are my favourite staff of all time - legends!

Hello, thank you for leaving us a review! Being just a 10 minute walk away, Cardiff City Centre really is just on our doorstep, which is amazing. Yes, we are in such a good place for bus routes - whether it is to grab a bus to uni and pop down to Cardiff Bay everything is a short bus journey away. We're so glad you chose to live with us for the duration of your university degree, we wish you all the best in the future! Thanks again - The Arofan House Team :)

Arofan House is an amazing student accommodation. The location is perfect, it is only 10 minutes away from town. The on-site staff, especially the facilities assistants are amazing! They are so helpful, especially Lewis, Stewart and Joe. If there is anything that needs fixing or if you just want a chat, they provide a very comfortable family feel. I have loved living here! I would highly recommend it.

Fantastic university experience, all staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and would regularly go above and beyond to ensure that each and every resident received the maximum experience and enjoyment for their time here. The location is both safe and close to Cardiff City Centre, with the facilities being of the highest quality. The atmosphere is the perfect mix for enjoying uni life, whilst also being able to study for exams. Would recommend to anybody interested in coming to Cardiff for their further education.
