When it all started in 2007 there were only a handful of students and landlords on the books, but as the student population has grown, so has the business. Today UniGaff is one of the best student letting businesses in Swansea. And do you know why? Because it’s family based.
In 2007 Mike and Pat scoured the celebrity world on their journey to find the perfect brand ambassador to lead the way forward in creating the perfect image and assembling the best team to steer their new company UniGaff into the future.
After considering stars such as George Clooney, Angelina Jolie, Elton John and Cyril the Swan, to mention just a few..., one character repeatedly headed the list. With his striking good looks, contagious personality and unrivalled knowledge of student property there could only be one...The Gaffer.
And so "The Gaffer", became the face of UniGaff.
The Gaffers fame has spread throughout Swansea as students applaud his tireless work.
Today it can be heard from the mouths of students far and near that when it comes to student property in Swansea
