The University campus is situated in the heart of Cardiff's attractive civic centre, Cathays Park.
In common with most city centres it can be very difficult to park and visitors are encouraged to use public transport.
Visitors should travel to Cardiff Central Station (rail and coach stations are adjacent to one another). Local rail services run regularly from platform 6 of Cardiff Central Station calling at Cathays Station, which is next to Cardiff Students' Union and directly opposite the University's Main Building.
For coach information, please visit the National Express website. It is worth noting that selected coach services stop at Cardiff University as well as the main bus station.
Several inter-regional and international air services operate from Cardiff Airport. The airport is located approximately 12 miles from the city centre. Visitors arriving here should take the X90 bus to Cardiff Central Station or a free bus to Rhoose (Cardiff International Airport) Railway Station. All rail services from Rhoose travel to Cardiff Central Station, and many also travel to Cathays Station.
Cardiff Council operates Park & Ride services from Cardiff East and West every fifteen minutes. Cardiff East Park & Ride offer an 'Early Bird £1 all-day offer' providing you park before 8.30am on Open Day. Buses run every 15 minutes and stop outside the University's Main Building. Please follow the signs on the A48. For further information, please visit the Cardiff Council website.
Visitors not using public transport to travel to Open Day are advised to use public car parks in central Cardiff. Car parking within the University is extremely limited, and for this reason, reserved for visitors who have mobility difficulties.
There are a number of public car parks within easy walking distance of the University - those in Dumfries Place (accessed via St Andrew's Place) and North Road may be the most convenient. Additionally, an on-street pay and display parking system operates in some streets surrounding the University campus. This typically costs around £3.50 for five hours. Payment is by coin or debit/credit card. Parking in the North Road car park is £5.00 per day (charges for city centre multi-storey car parks vary considerably, up to £18 per day).
The Postgraduate Open Day 2012 will take place 11.00-16.30 Wednesday 28th November, in the Main Building and the Students' Union
