Campus investment

Our £300M ambitious development plan for an Innovation Campus on Maindy Road will transform an area of Cardiff from a disused, former industrial space into a range of state-of-the-art facilities.

Already open

The Hadyn Ellis Building was the first development on the site to be completed. It brings together experts in conditions such as schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease and stem cell cancer research for the first time.

It was followed by the new Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC). CUBRIC is one of Europe's flagship facilities in brain research imaging.

Future plans

We are also investing in a further four new buildings, with planning approved by the city council for the Translational Research Facility and Innovation Central.

There will also be a new footbridge over the railway line, linking Cardiff Business School to the Campus. This will not only benefit students and staff but the local community as a whole.
