Our student accommodation in Cardiff, The Neighbourhood, enjoys an amazingly central Cardiff location, offering easy access to the University, as well instant access to shops should you want to stock up on commodities.

Access to everything

Conveniently located on ‘The Parade’, the same street as Cardiff University’s School of Engineering campus and Cardiff School of Computer Science & Informatics, we’re also on the corner of bustling City Road with its cafes, retail stores and restaurants.  It’s convenient and rurally beautiful – all at the same time.

The Parade

The Parade is a charming, residential, leafy tree lined street right in the heart land of the city centre, and runs parallel to Newport Road, one of the connectors of Cardiff.  It’s a mere 9-minute walk from the St. David Shopping Centre as well as retail brands Pret, M&S and all major stores.  The Neighbourhood is also only a 5-minute cab ride from Cardiff central station – which means your parents and friends can easily access you too.

Food and drink

At our Cardiff Met University accommodation, you’ll enjoy an amazing coffee and sandwich bar (AJ’s) directly in front of The Neighbourhood, plus a ‘little dessert shop’next door as well as an Italian restaurant and take away called Giardino Sorrento over the road, which offers real fresh, delicious Italian food.


The area is officially known to Welsh residents as ‘Roath’, which boasts superb parks, houses a very diverse population including a large number of students and is very close to the main university campuses. Parts of Roath are also amongst the most affluent districts of Cardiff. We’re lucky enough to be near to – but NOT on – Newport Road, which means we’re easily accessible but are able to cycle, walk, shop and have access to all the great perks of Roath.

We’re also very near the Principality stadium which also boasts the Welsh Rugby Grounds and within walking distance of the amazing Cardiff Castle and Cardiff Bay.
