Our location

In September 2018 we will move from Bute Building to a new state-of-the-art home in Cardiff’s Central Square development.

Our current address

School of Journalism, Media and Culture
Cardiff University
Bute Building, King Edward VII Avenue
Cardiff
CF10 3NB

The Bute Building is based at the University's Cathays Park campus and is one of the Portland stone buildings situated on the tree lined avenues that form Cardiff's civic centre.

No. 2 Central Square

Our move to No. 2 Central Square will place us alongside local and national media companies including broadcaster BBC Cymru/Wales.

The relocation will build stronger industry links, boosting our students’ employability by providing direct access to major media organisations within journalism as well as the creative and cultural industries.

“This is an exciting opportunity, and the School is striving to make the most of it for the benefit of our University and its students as well as for Cardiff as the creative capital of Wales.”
