September saw the start of a new academic year for universities and colleges throughout Cardiff. Cardiff University alone are expecting in excess of 6,000 new students - commonly known as 'Freshers' - this autumn, and have organised two weeks of events to introduce and settle them into life in Cardiff.
'Freshers Fornight' began on 21st September 2011 and featured an array of entertainment, with two Radio One DJs - Annie Mac and Zane Low - being the headline attractions.
As a rule, students tend to live in Halls of Residence owned by the universities during their first year, however from as early as November the majority will begin to look at letting private residential houses for the following academic year. The same is true for students already residing in private houses and fancy a change for the following year.
At CPS Homes we aim to meet this demand and will be contacting all of our student tenants in October to find out whether they wish to remain at their property the following year. As such, our list of available properties will be released earlier than ever this year; from 1st November. This will mean that viewings commence immediately and carry on throughout the winter months.
If you have a student property that is managed by us already, don't worry; we will do all of this for you. If you currently use our 'Let Only' service or have/will be purchasing property available to let between July - September 2012, please contact our Lettings Team on 02920 668585 or e-mail us on email@example.com to ensure you don't miss out on the rush!
