Students in the lecture theatre.

The School of Mathematics is situated in a modern building, known as the Mathematics Institute, located in a central position within the University campus, yet within five minutes walking time of the main city shopping complex and Cardiff's magnificent Civic Centre. Staff accommodation is excellent, with each member of staff being allocated their own room containing good computing facilities.

The building houses the Mathematics Library and a Senior Common Room for Mathematics staff and postgraduate students. There are three computing laboratories available specifically for Mathematics students, together with a public computing laboratory, which are accessible to Mathematics students within the Institute. In addition there is a postgraduate computing laboratory, and there is access to more specialised equipment such as scanners, colour and laser printers etc. The School has recently established a high-tech Access-Grid Room, enabling staff/postgraduate students to participate in video-conferencing and taught elements of PhD programmes (the MAGIC consortium).
