Over 2,000 quality bedrooms available throughout July, August and until mid-September at budget friendly rates. All year-round meeting and event facilities for up to 450 delegates. Clever use of indoor and outdoor public and social meeting space and access to The Cardiff Collection of heritage venues (including Cardiff Castle, Cardiff City Hall and The Mansion House) for social programme and gala dinner options.

Their largest campus upgrade in a generation will deliver the Centre for Student Life, a service-led project delivered in partnership with the Students’ Union. This will result in new meeting facilities for 550 delegates.
