Newport Campus

Right at the heart of the city, overlooking the River Usk, is one of the University’s most iconic buildings and it couldn’t be in a better location to embrace city life in Newport. Plus, the Halls of Residence are just a few minutes’ walk away, so you won’t have to get up too early for your 9am lectures!

Newport Campus is home to a wide range of subject areas, so you’ll benefit from studying in a diverse atmosphere. We’re continually developing facilities - there’s a new cafe with Starbucks coffee. Students’ Union facilities and study space, with more developments to come.

There is so much opportunity in Newport and you’ve probably got lots of questions about becoming a student at the University of South Wales, visit us at an open day for more information.
