The university has two main campuses.
From listed buildings to new, modern structures, The Pontypridd campus reflects the university’s history and its ambitions. The campus is divided into two sites: USW Treforest and USW Glyntaff and students will find everything they need - halls of residence, the library and sport centre, cafes and bars to eat and drink, and friends to spend time with.
USW Cardiff is in the city centre, putting student life at the heart of the capital of Wales, great for students in creative industries courses with specialist facilities across campus for students to perfect and learn creative skills in a professional environment. Cardiff is a major centre for media production in the UK, and the city centre will soon to be home to the BBC in addition to the established Pinewood Studios.
USW Sport Park
The USW Sport Park is one of the best university sports coaching and training venues in the country. Many professional teams use the USW Sport Park for training, such as the Wales football team, Cardiff City Football Club, as well as touring rugby squads, including the New Zealand All Blacks, South African Springboks and Australian Wallabies.
Facilities include a new full-size indoor 3G pitch, built to the FIFA Pro and World Rugby 22 standard and a specialist centre for strength and conditioning. Along with a notational analysis suite, more than 30 acres of playing fields with five floodlit pitches, as well as a full-size FIFA-approved outdoor 3G pitch.
For students studying at Cardiff, USW work with a private provider to offer rooms in their Halls of Residence. These en suite rooms are right in the city centre directly opposite the USW Cardiff campus. For students studying at City Campus, Newport, the university has teamed up with a private provider to offer modern halls of residence overlooking the River Usk and a five-minute walk from the university, local supermarkets and the city centre nightlife.
