J-Soc Size: 20
Cardiff is a very safe city and fairly cheap for students. When it comes to nightlife we have a huge Student Union with our own club called SOLUS as well as our pub called the TAF. In town there are many clubs and pubs if you fancy a drink and a bit of a dance. Not only is there a good night life but during the day you can roam the numerous shopping centres and shops for a bargain then rest in one of the many coffee shops or cafes. If history takes your fancy you can always visit the castle in the middle of town or the museum, which is a short walk from the university.
Kosher Food & Accommodation
Hillel House is available to Jewish students at a very reasonable rent. Each room contains a cooking area and shower. Furthermore if you join J-Soc for £3 you will even get a discount on your rent. Once a week a Kosher food van is open outside the orthodox synagogue. Furthermore most of the main shopping centres have a small kosher section. However, if this proves difficult, J-Soc is always at hand to help find it for you.

Local Community Information
The local community both from the Reform and Orthodox synagogues is friendly and willing to help in any way. If a place is needed for one of the festivals, a home can always be found for our students. Events take place with both communities and we are always welcome as a society to attend.
