Cathays Park

Main building 500x280The Cathays Park campus is centred on Main Building

The Cathays Park campus is where most of our academic schools are based. With wide tree-lined avenues and elegant Portland stone buildings, it's an inspiring place to study.

The palpable feeling of history is contrasted by state-of-the-art facilities including new labs, lecture theatres and IT suites.

The main Students’ Union building, located at the heart of the campus on Park Place, is one of the biggest and most active in Britain. Events, clubs and information services are provided, and on-site facilities include a café, general shop, bookshop, student letting agency, large games room, nightclub and pub.
