Halls of Residence

Cardiff Metropolitan University aims to provide a safe and secure environment for students living on campus, with friendly Halls staff available to provide support and help throughout your stay with us.

We currently have nearly 1000 study bedrooms located at the Cyncoed and Plas Gwyn campuses. In addition, we also allocate just over 650 private en-suite halls to students through nomination agreements with private halls located near to the campuses.

Please note that from September 2019 Cardiff Metropolitan University campuses will become 'Clean Air' Campuses. This means smoking and vaping will only be permitted in dedicated smoking shelters.

From September 2020 Cardiff Metropolitan campuses will all be 'Smoke Free' and no smoking or vaping will be permitted on any campus.


Please ensure that a 40 or 42 week contract for Halls is suitable for your studies, as if you wish to finish earlier then you will need to find alternative accommodation. Your Cardiff Met Academic School will be able to confirm when your course ends.



If you're aged 16 - 21, you're entitled to make a great saving on the University’s MetRider bus service.  For £180*, you’ll get unlimited access to all MetRider services throughout the full academic year (7 days a week).


Hall​s Manager at Cardiff Met​

C​ardiff Met Halls Managers are present at each of the campuses and are supported by a team of trained student wardens who are usually mature or final year students who have previously lived in halls. Evening and weekend duty rotas ensure that a member of staff and a student warden are always available to deal with queries or emergencies. The private halls providers have their own 24 hour security arrangements in place.
