Rugby fans get ready! For six weeks, between mid-September and the end of October, Collegiate residents will be treated to some of the best rugby matches in the world, as the Rugby World Cup returns to England.
Rugby is one of England’s most famous sporting exports, having originally been developed at Rugby School in Rugby, Warwickshire in the 19th century. Nowadays, rugby’s popularity has spread around the globe, but the best of the best will be back in England this autumn, competing for the Webb Ellis Cup and for the pride of their nation.
A total of six of the stadia in which matches will be played are in cities where our fabulous student accommodation is present:
- Elland Road, Leeds
- Millennium Stadium, Cardiff
- Olympic Stadium and Wembley Stadium, London
- Sandy Park, Exeter
- Villa Park, Birmingham
It shows just how well we have chosen our locations and how many opportunities Collegiate residents have to learn about the world beyond academia while at university. We think about sporting events and a whole host of other cultural activities when we look at sites for our buildings. Each one has to be perfectly located to enjoy the best of city living, wherever that city may be.
Take Northgate House in Cardiff, for example. Not only is it a stone’s throw from Cardiff University, it also has the city centre on the doorstep and is just 1.5 km from the Millennium Stadium. That means residents have easy access to world-class sporting and music events, as well as the shops, restaurants and other amenities of the city centre.
We aim to make your experience at university a pleasurable one. From high spec interiors to carefully selected locations, we consider every detail of your university experience so you don’t have to. All you need do is enjoy your uni days to the max, whether hitting the books or catching a live show of the infamous All Blacks Haka!
