Coming to Cardiff

Which bank should I choose?

The University does not recommend any banks, but these banks are close to the Cathays Campus. There is a Natwest bank in the Heath Hospital.

Make sure you go to the right branch of your chosen bank!

There are several branches of each bank in Cardiff, but if you go to the wrong place, the bank staff won’t be able to open an account for you.

  • Santander - Ground floor, Students' Union, Cardiff University
  • Barclays - 1 - 5 St David's Way, 28 Working Street, Cardiff CF10 2DJ
  • HSBC - 56 Queen Street Cardiff, CF10 2PX
  • Natwest - 96 Queen Street, Cardiff, CF10 2GR
  • Lloyds - 31 Queen Street, Cardiff, CF10 2AG
  • TSB - 2-3 Working Street, Cardiff, South Glamorgan, CF10 1GN
