The Vision

Campus Horizons aims to ensure Cardiff University has the world-leading facilities it needs for the 20th Century. The two existing campuses, Cathays Park and Heath Park, will be transformed with new buildings and refurbishments of existing facilities. A third campus, Maindy Park, will nurture and expand new research initiatives. The Modern Working Environment will provide a high-quality electronic architecture which matches the built architecture.

Many projects are now under way, some at the early planning stages, others nearing final completion.
