Meet Sian

Sian Owens – Tell us a little about yourself?
I was born in North Wales, I’m also fluent in the beautiful language and studied Drama in London.  I’ve lived in Cardiff for a couple of years now and I especially love Cardiff because although it’s got the buzz of a capital city, it has a friendly community and a fantastic culture with theatre, arts, music, gigs as well as superb history with walks, bike tours etc.

How would you describe the Neighbourhood to new residents?
The Neighbourhood is very friendly and has a community, I’ve got to know everyone and I think the difference is absolutely our neighbourliness. It’s very close to the city centre, and we’re on the corner of City Road which is lively with restaurants.

What’s your working day like?
I help people with any questions they may have, it’s a very relaxed atmosphere here and I love to have a chat, make sure everyone’s happy, helping the smooth running of the building be the best it can be.

Which is your favourite room/space to hang out in the Neighbourhood and why?
I love the communal kitchen and private dining room, it’s so spacious, well equipped and calm.  The lighting is lovely and it would make a superb venue for a friendly dinner party for pals or family.

Which is your favourite studio and why?
The Penthouses (see picture on the right) of course, and as they only currently priced at £199 per week which is amazing!  If I was a student, I definitely would. The views over the city are expansive, they’re wonderful.

What measures are you taking to ensure the safety of residents regarding coronavirus?
We have sanitisers and lots of disposable facemasks for people, we’re all wearing facemasks which I think is a really good thing and as usual our cleaners do an amazing job.

What is included in the price of the rent for students here?
EVERYTHING – access to all our facilities – gym, cinema, karaoke; we also do breakfasts, have bikes, laundry room, teams at hand 24/7 and strangers can’t come in off the street.

What are you doing for freshers’ week?
We’re going to be as careful as possible during these challenging times and are setting up some amazing virtual initiatives and events to keep everyone safe and happy – watch this space!! Thinking about online masterclasses, yoga, cookery, tea masterclasses, chocolate making, comedy and lots of fun creative ideas.

Sian 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.
