The Hadyn Ellis Building


Cardiff University aims to be one of the 21st Century’s leading international universities. Campus Horizons, a programme of ambitious capital projects, is one step towards that aim. The programme includes major new development projects, including an entirely new campus for the University’s research. The existing campus will be upgraded and transformed, as will the information and communications technology.

Campus Horizons will create a community of staff and students, with the resources to share ideas, make new discoveries and keep Cardiff at the forefront of world-leading scholarship.
