Newman Hall is our Catholic Halls of Residence, based on Colum Rd, six minutes walk North from 62 Park Place and located behind Nazareth House, on the junction between North Road and Colum Road. It is accessed through the Nazareth House staff car park.

We have 20 ensuite bedrooms in two separate sections of the house; 16 Undergraduate and 4 Postgraduate. We benefit from having a large Refectory and separate Common room & residents’ bar, with further study space and a relaxation area for Post-graduate students. We also have a house chapel where the Blessed Sacrament is reserved for prayer and community Mass.

Although you don’t have to be a Catholic to live here, Newman Hall is part of the Catholic University Chaplaincy in Cardiff, which is entirely owned and funded by the Archdiocese of Cardiff. This means that we benefit from a particular ethos; we seek to build up a caring, nurturing community; a safe environment where students look after each other and are provided with opportunities for faith formation and well as to build up confidence and solid social skills. We are currently full for the Autumn Semester 2022

If you wish to enquire about a term time space or summer accommodation at Newman Hall for next year, please email our Chaplain at We may potentially have limited spaces for Spring 2023 and we are already receiving interest for September 2023.
