A Space to Create

Our £14.7m expansion to our ATRiuM building at our Cardiff campus is now open. 


The building provides students with an increased range of specialist creative facilities, including studio facilities for our design and fashion courses, dance studios, drama rehearsal spaces and substantial photographic studios and labs. This is in addition to the new fabrication workshops for media, performance and design courses, and model making facilities for animation. 

Students also benefit from open study practice areas, offering a base for students from all our creative courses to work independently or in groups, typifying the collaborative way in which the creative industries work. It has never been more exciting to study in Cardiff!
