There is limited car parking available at Cardiff University and due to expansion and improvements planned throughout the University estate, there will be further impact on the availability of car parking facilities in the future.
Cardiff is well provided for in terms of park and ride services. There are three locations to park your vehicle and hop on a bus to take you into the city centre. This is a cheaper alternative to city centre parking and takes away the stress of looking for a parking space.
