The friendly, experienced and well resourced team at our student accommodation in Cardiff, The Neighbourhood, is here to ensure your needs are met, and have years of experience in the service industry behind them. No task or request is too large or small for them. Just call them The Neighbourhood Watch!

So we’re excited to let you know that Kelly Matthews has joined the team as Residence Manager. With over 9 years experience in student accommodation in Cardiff, we’re excited to have her be a part of the Neighbourhood team here in Wales.

Read on to meet Kelly.

Meet Kelly

Kelly originally comes from Ogmore Vale in Bridgend, which is located between Cardiff and Swansea here in Wales. Bridgend boasts rolling hills to the north, which sweep down to the coastline around the seaside town of Porthcawl.

Kelly originally studied as a Nursery Nurse in Bridgend and has been lucky enough to work in holiday resorts in Spain, the Canary Islands and Tenerife with travel company TUI for many years.

Since returning to the UK, Kelly has worked in the private student accommodation sector in Cardiff for over 9 years. Kelly loves working with students and is looking forward to getting to know you all and helping in any way she can.

She says, “I’m thrilled to be joining The Neighbourhood family and can already see it is such a warm, friendly place to be.  The rooms are beautifully designed yet still very homely and I’m really impressed with the NY style bathrooms, the amazing penthouses and the feeling of spaciousness.  I’m enjoying meeting and working with the team too, who have made me feel so welcome. I especially like the lovely large private dining room where you can cook a meal for you and your friends and I think the breakfasts-to-go are such a generous feature!’

Kelly is really looking forward to meeting you all and making our Cardiff Met University accommodation truly your home away from home while at university in Cardiff.

Kelly and the rest of our concierge service are available 24/7 to help you with anything you need – from calling a late night taxi or locating Cardiff’s best burgers, to advice on tomorrow morning’s presentation or just to chat if you’re feeling homesick.
