Are any of the halls in Cardiff Haunted? We went to find to find out

Should you be worrying about things going bump in the night?


Recently there seems to have been a rising trend of apps and cameras capturing 'ghosts', whether it be via scary Snapchat filters, or actual 'photo evidence'. So naturally we decided to figure out if any of Cardiff University's student accommodation are haunted.

Armed with a very scientific and definitely reliable ghost-finder app, we took to the halls and hunted some ghosts.

Taly North – House T

Talybont North and South

We started at the largest of the accommodation sites; Taly, where unfortunately there was rather a lot of ghostly activity, especially in houses T, V and C in Talybont North, where there seemed to be a ghost around every corner – the same goes for Talybont South (so sorry guys but it seems like the majority of freshers are gonna be dealing with ghosts at some point).

Talybont Court

There seemed to be less activity in Talybont Court (perhaps the ghosts aren't a fan of the slightly increased rent?) However we did manage to snap a few 'ghosts', and one student who lived there did report hearing strange bumping noises around the halls – although we're not really sure if we can take that as conclusive proof of ghostly entities.

Aberconway, Senghennydd, Aberdare and Liberty

Other Cardiff Uni halls that you might have to worry about outside Talybont include Aberconway Hall, Senghennydd Court, Aberdare Hall and Liberty House (especially in the laundry room, so if you're not doing your washing in pairs to save money, do it to avoid possession).

Aberconway Hall

Though this investigation may not indeed be full proof, there does seem to be spooky vibe around town. However, if you do start hearing things go bump in the night, chances are it's a drunken housemate staggering into their room, or someone throwing their laptop across the room because Eduroam has disconnected AGAIN, so I wouldn't worry too much.

Happy Halloween…
