        Pocket Guide: Cardiff University Cardiff University Hotels

        Cardiff University is located right in the centre of the city, close to Bute Park, the River Taff, the Millennium Stadium and many other famous Cardiff landmarks. A stay in a hotel nearby in Cardiff will put visitors near to not only the university but a host of other attractions.

        The university can trace its history back to 1883, when it was then known as the University College of South Wales and Monmouthshire. It moved to its present home in Cathays Park, when the main building was completed in 1909. Expansion on the site led to the addition of the Bute, Glamorgan and Redwood buildings. These are respectively home to the Welsh School of Architecture and the Cardiff School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies, the Cardiff Schools of Planning, Geography and Social Sciences, and the School of Pharmacy.

        Today, the university is home to more than 30,000 students from more than 100 countries. Of these, 21,000 are undergraduates and 8,685 are postgraduates. There are more than 6,000 international students studying at the university. Graduates from Cardiff University do well on leaving the campus, with more of them sought after than those from most other of the country’s universities and 95% entering employment or professional study upon graduating.

        Cardiff University is renowned around the world for its research into, among other things, curing cancer and combating Alzheimer’s disease. The university also works with NASA in exploring space. Research carried out by staff at the university is widely acknowledged for the positive impact that it has had on society, in a diverse range of areas.

        Students at the university can take advantage of many extracurricular activities, thanks in large part to its Students Union, one of the best in the country according to the 2014 National Student Survey. Nightlife is an important part of any university course, and Cardiff has plenty of it on offer. The main venue is the Great Hall. This 1,600 capacity venue holds concerts, shows films and holds many other special events. It is a fixture on the UK touring circuit, with 25 concerts being held every year. Artists including Ellie Goulding, Tinie Tempah and Ocean Colour Scene have all appeared in the hall. The campus also has its own nightclub, the Solus, which hosts more intimate concerts as well as comedy nights. There is also the Taf Bar, which is described as a “proper pub” as well as The Lounge, a social meeting place aimed at overseas students, from where they can use Skype to keep in touch with relatives at home.

        With so much to see around the university, a stay in a hotel in the centre of Cardiff will bring visitors within easy reach of all that the city centre has to offer, from high culture and architecture to shopping and nightlife, eating, drinking and soaking up the atmosphere.
