City Campus but with all the buildings being close gives you the best of both worlds. New Student for life centre attached to the SU is really nice and fits in with the universities 'theme' . In person and online lectures have hit the sweet spot in 3rd term (I personally enjoy having a few online lectures that keep you from travelling in.) Cardiff is a great compact city with lots of potential for further expansion through towards the bay.

I love cardiff as a city and the university buildings are in a great location, there’s also a really good student life in cardiff. Although the university it’s self can be good in certain aspects I feel like student support is not their strong point. There are some good facilities around the university and these definitely seem to be improving with the new student life building.

The University has some new high-tech facilities which are great for students, and investing in the student experience through the new centre of the student life. The students union is friendly, supportive, and offers a variety of events to keep students engaged and to enrich their academic experience.

It is in a great location with great facilities. The 24/7 opening hours of the library is very useful. The doctoral academy training sessions have made my PhD experience much smoother and made me feel less on the dark.

Cardiff is an amazing city to study in. It's fairly cheap and extremely accessible by foot in the city centre. However, studying at Cardiff University has been a huge eye-opener for me; the staff and institution do not care about the well-being or safety of their students. This year my tution fees have covered various strikes, online university, lazy pre-recorded lectures AND an awful graduation ceremony where I and my fellow graduate will not recieve indivdual recognition. I will not get reimbursed for this. I would not reccommend this university to anyone.

Best aspects: Cardiff Uni has got 24/7 library facilities, Eduroam internet service across the campus, multi-faith prayer rooms and a dedicated SU. Room for improvement: More COVID-safety
