I love living here. Been here for 3 years and wouldn’t change it for the world. In fact I wish I could live here for the rest of my life. Literally. I love the building, facilities, cleanliness and property team too. Always go above and beyond for us.

Howard Gardens is a great place to live with a gym, study area, cinema room and games space (also a washer/dryer in each kitchen so no additional spend for laundry). It is right next to the city centre and Queen Street train station but not very close to Cardiff Uni Campus. Before Mezzino took over, I would have rated all areas a 5/5 however since Mezzino took over, the rent for the next academic year has skyrocketed and the current social events have dwindled. In a few months, we will be paying significantly more for less events and social activities. If you have the money to afford the rent prices and/or you are not bothered about the lack of quality social events, I would recommend it.

This year and last year things are breaking down, we have had 2-3 water cuts and 2-3 electricity being cut on sunday. Electric cooker fires due to boiling eggs, and bathroom and reception water leakage. Been a mess. However, great drinks, socials, and free supplies provided, decent gym (just needs ventilation), decent study and chill places and lovely residence and security team. Very safe = secure

Overall I have a good experience in terms of the cleanliness and property management. One thing I would say is that I’d have preferred if I could have been assigned a flat with people of a similar age to me, as my flatmates are mostly postgrads and don’t want to talk, therefore making me feel like I missed out on some of the social aspects of living away from home.

The building is a lovely area with many facilities. I have brought my friends over many times and they are both impressed and very jealous. Beyond that, the building is well-managed, safe and the staff are all exceptionally friendly.

Amazing place to live. Beginning to get slightly unaffordable with price increases, but cannot complain about value for money.

perfect place to live as a student however the social spaces have multiple machines such as arcade machines, or air hockey that aren’t functional. same with the karaoke room, it just doesn’t work. on top of this, the wifi has a monetary block stopping you from adding more than 5 devices to it unless you pay an annual subscription, which i think is too harsh, with all the devices you need to stay on top of studies it’s easy to fill these five slots and it’s not acceptable i have to pay more for that. If these were fixed however, this would be the best place to live as a student in cardiff for the building and management is amazing.

Was better under prime Student Living as there was lots of social events. Needs better maintenance of the gym as stairmaster has been broken for many months.

Living in Howard gardens have overall been a great first year experience which is very accessible socially as well as educationally, only being a short walk from my university campus.
