During the campus tours and course talks you may get the opportunity to see some of the facilities you'll use on your course.

Our Cardiff campus has outstanding facilities for our creative students from radio and film equipment to fashion and music studios.

Liberty Bridge Accommodation

Go on campus and accommodation tours

Where you live is just as important as where you learn, and we want USW to be your home away from home so make sure you attend an accommodation tour. 

We recommend you go to the accommodation talk and take a look at the show flat located in Liberty Bridge, which is just across the road!

If you need any help during the day, simply ask a student ambassador - they're here to help you!

Ask questions about your course or about student life to get an insight from a current student.
