Cardiff is a safe city, but like all cities you have to be sensible. The vast majority of international students enjoy a positive and rewarding experience during their stay in Cardiff. The suggestions that follow are intended to advise, not to alarm. Much of the advice is common sense, but it can make a real difference.
If you go out alone at night make sure someone knows where you are going.
Further information and advice is available from the Security Centre which is based on Park Place, opposite 51 Park Place (map ref. 51). Here are some useful guides on staying safe whilst you are studying here in Cardiff:
The University Security Centre provides 24 hour security cover for the University campus and halls of residence. A comprehensive CCTV camera system operates throughout the University campus, including some of the large residential sites. The cameras are used to direct security staff to incidents, and the Centre works in close liaison with the police. If you have any personal safety concerns, require some security advice, or wish to report a crime, telephone the Security Control Centre:
