Cardiff Campus - ATRiuM

Cardiff Campus

USW Cardiff is in the city centre, putting you at the heart of the capital of Wales. It's the perfect home for our creative industries courses and students.

The last decade has seen specialist facilities develop across campus for you to hone and learn creative skills in a professional environment.

Cardiff is a major centre for media production in the UK, with the city centre soon to be home to the BBC in addition to the established Pinewood Studios.

There is so much opportunity in Cardiff; visit us on an Open Day to see for yourself.


Student life

Cardiff is for students, with its plethora of galleries, museums, sporting events, bars, restaurants and shopping among much more to be discovered beyond the boundaries of the city. With USW Cardiff's central location our students are never far from the thick of the action.
