Centre for Student Life
In brief

Cardiff University


Construction value: 

October 2021

An inspirational new building at the heart of the Cardiff University campus developed alongside, and in partnership with its Student Union. The new Centre for Student Life building will provide a world-leading holistic student experience providing for every facet of student life.

The Centre for Student Life is part of a major investment in the student experience and part of the biggest campus upgrade in a generation at Cardiff University, in response to requests from students for enhanced services and improved spaces for learning and studying.

The new building is a central hub for student support services as well as offering modern, flexible social learning spaces and a technology-rich 550-seat lecture theatre.

Student services are structured around:

  • Futures: careers, employability and global opportunities
  • Wellbeing: mental health and counselling
  • Student life: money, international student support, disability support, student administration
  • Advice bar: students can raise their query either physically within the centre or online 24/7

The co-location of the Centre and the Students’ Union will enable easy access of services, which will benefit students enormously. 

FCBStudios gained planning permission for the Centre for Student Life in December 2016.
