Cardiff is the capital and largest city in Wales and the eleventhlargest city in the United Kingdom. The population of the Cardiff Capital Region is estimated to be 1.5 million, and city counts a population of 361,468.
The town grew rapidly from the 1830s onwards, when Cardiff became the main port for exports of coal from the Cynon, Rhondda, and Rhymney valleys. Much of the growth was due to migration from within and outside Wales.
Today, Cardiff is a significant tourist centre and the most popular visitor destination in Wales. The city is the principal finance and business services centre in Wales, and it is combined with strong public administration, education and health sectors.
Many cultural institutions such as Wales Millennium Centre, Motorpoint Arena, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Sherman Theatre, Chapter Arts Centre and the Gate Arts Centre are based in the city and have a well-known reputation throughout the United Kingdom.
In spring and summer, thousands of students from all over the world gather to attend language courses at the many language schools.
Cardiff Self-Storage: At A Glance
With such a large population living in Cardiff, moving in and out, there are numerous self-storages available. Choosing one that suits your needs should not be a seven self-storages different in size with four of them located just near city centre. You can use storages for differently sized items: from books and clothes that overcrowd your home, to robust pieces of furniture that need to be laid aside while moving, as well as for short and long term storing of goods.
Does Cardiff student population affect self-storage prices?
Cardiff is home to four major institutions of higher education: Cardiff University, Cardiff Metropolitan University, University of South Wales and the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, with student population of around 43,900.
Every year, students move in and out of dorm rooms. However, student budget is limited, and it often doesn’t allow moving furniture, books and other belongings all the way back home. Keeping things in local self-storage is more convenient, and many students as well as owners of self-storages know that. That is why in many places with large student population some storage facilities offer discounts specifically for students to help them afford a storage unit.
