This accommodation is so warm and community-driven, with endless opportunities to make friends. The location of Nunnery is paradoxical: secluded but bumbling which I like, there are shops, takeaways and buses - plenty of opportunities to enrich yourself.

I came to Nunnery after having a difficult year in uni at Cardiff. The staff were supportive and very welcoming to me, with the Halls manager and RAs saying that they were available to talk whenever they were in the office, being able to offer advice or help with getting support from the uni. The community at nunnery means that everyone is happy to have a conversation with whoever in the courtyard.

As a first year nunnery court was brilliant and was a great way to experience living by myself, as there is a brilliant courtyard and common room where we could meet other students. Staff are brilliant cleaning staff were great and a big shout out to Jo who kept everything running and also ran some awesome hall events especially the open mic nights. Additionally as a gamer the WIFI was more than adequate, on current gen Xbox series X I was pulling speeds of 500mbps and over.

Overall very tight knit, everyone knew everyones buisness, the courtyard was dominated by smokers, the halls were loud and flat mates can be difficult to live with because there is no space to breathe, hall manager and staff there were fab i must say.

Cleaners don't clean unless you've clean before they come but that happens everywhere. Rent is a bit excessive when you don't even get a shelf in the fridge to yourself. Rooms are on the small side & only one half of the flats have been refurbished. Our half will be refurbished after we leave yet we still pay the same and the people in the new, better, refurbished flats.

For a first year student this probably wasn't the best accommodation , its in a good location but I found it to be really quiet and not as much going on as the other halls, as well as this the internet was pretty bad at times and the 'cleaning' was someone hoovering your hallway and wiping down the kitchen sides which we did anyway.

Nunnery court is by far the best halls, I know other people from other halls and they are always complaining about something. At nunnery the RA's and hall manager are so lovely and are approachable and easy to talk to. Even the caretaker, security guards and cleaners are always up for a chat. If you're struggling to decide what halls to go for I would suggest nunnery court as it just feels so homely

Have lived at nunnery for three years of my degree. I love the social aspect of the site, with the fountain in the courtyard where I can go outside and just chat to people and make new friends. Staff are dead nice, especially the RA's they are always up for a chat which made me feel at home

This halls was nice and central for everything, ten minutes into town and five minutes to brit mill. You can expect a bit of noise on student nights if you have a court facing room, mainly when people are leaving and coming back .
