Travelling to Cathays/Maindy Park Campuses


Cardiff is served by the M4 and is easily accessible from all parts of Britain.

From the south west, take the M5 and from the south of England, follow major A roads to the M4.

From Scotland, the north of England and the Midlands, travel via the M50 to the M4.

Travelling east on the M4. Leave the motorway at Junction 32, follow the A470, signposted City Centre, into the Cathays area of the city.

Travelling west on the M4. Leave the motorway at Junction 29, follow the A48(M)/A48, signposted Cardiff East and South, to the A470. Follow the A470, signposted City Centre, into the Cathays area of the city.


Parking

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.


Park and Ride

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.
