Take a fresh look at fresher’s week

On Monday come and say hello to at Cardiff’s fresher’s fair. We will be showcasing our new updates and have some information and giveaways.

Last week was represented at UWIC’s fresher’s fair now the attention turns to Cardiff University. We will be bringing along copies of the ‘You’re in. Now what?’ poster to support students in the private rented sector. The poster provides advice and assistance on the four main issues that concern students: Neighbour relations, Rubbish and Recycling responsibilities, Security and Health and Safety. Please come and take a copy, display and distribute to your new flatmates to help make the transition into the private sector a smooth transition; safer, greener, healthier and more socially aware.

We will be working with waste management helping people understand their waste and recycling responsibilities with some freebies on offer and the chance to sign up for tidy text.

We have offers for the OYBike hire scheme – a voucher that entitles you to annual membership for £10 instead of the usual £18.
