What are the costs?

Fees vary from year to year and from campus to campus depending on the type of room allocated to you. However, all Cardiff Met contracts cover a 40 week period (coinciding with the academic year), which means that students can stay in halls and leave their belongings in their room during the Christmas and Easter holidays.

Students must sign up for the whole 40 week period and cannot be released from their contract unless a replacement is found or they leave Cardiff Metropolitan University. Students are still liable for rent until the end of the term in which they leave, provided that they notify the Halls Manager, return their access card / keys and we receive confirmation of their withdrawal from University by the first day of the next new term.

Students living in any of the private halls must sign up for the whole 42 week period and cannot be released from their contract unless a replacement is found.If they leave Cardiff Metropolitan University then they will still be held to the terms of their contract. Students in Private Halls will also require a UK based guarantor before they can move into their room.

Cardiff Met Hall fees are paid in three instalments - Autumn, Winter and Spring. Liberty Living fees are paid in either two or three installments. Further details on halls fees and payment methods can be obtained by contacting the Accommodation Services.
