Videoconferencing at Cardiff University

Information about using our videoconferencing facilities is available on the staff and student intranets (login required). 

Please note that our videoconference suites can be booked by other universities to organise events with members of Cardiff University. The suites are also available for meetings relating to learning and teaching, or which highlight the University as a centre of learning.  

The University currently has several videoconference suites across Cathays and Heath Park campuses. The central videoconference suite, located in Ty Dewi Sant on Heath Park, is part of the Welsh Video Network.


Video Conferencing Suites

The video conferencing studios, which are part of the Welsh Video Network (WVN), are located at:

  • Room 1:20, Ty Dewi Sant, Heath Park Campus. (Please note, wheelchair access is available at this facility.)  
  • 10 North Road, Cathays Park campus
  • PTC Room 0.03 (Trading Room)
  • PTC Room 0.04 (Teaching Room)
  • PTC Room 0.16 (Lecture Theatre)
  • PTC Room 1.19 (Lecture Theatre)
  • PTC Room 1.06 (Post graduate hub)
  • PTC Room 3.02 (Executive Education board room)

The PTC rooms have polycom video conferencing capabilities via the JANET network. (We can also offer Skype audio/video capabilities in every CARBS teaching space and all Lecture Theatres) and can be booked by calling CARBS reception on 74674.

There are also several other video conferencing units located at the Dental School, Heath Park and the Hadyn Ellis Building that can be booked upon request. Some individual Schools have their own video conference equipment and are reserved for School use only.

The dedicated video conferencing suites offer improved video quality compared with desktop solutions, and the ability to accommodate larger groups of people through the use of multiple microphones and larger screens.

The Video conferencing suite is furnished with interactive whiteboards, data projectors, document cameras, data-sharing PCs and Video/DVD players.  Video conferences can also be recorded by prior request.

The Cardiff video suite can be booked by anyone who has subscribed to the Janet Video Conference Service (JVCS) and Cardiff users can book suites at other participating venues by requesting a booking through our conferencing team.
