Keeping you updated

We want to be sure that you receive the latest news and guidance from us to help support you throughout your student life.

Your university email

Students tell us that email is the best way to contact them.

Please check your emails daily to ensure that you receive important information relevant to you. This will include:

  • Pro Vice-Chancellor’s messages about our response to the coronavirus and the measures being taken at this quickly changing time.
  • Academic school messages specifically about your school and the changes they are making that will affect you and your studies.
  • Student News is your weekly student newsletter, keeping you up to date with important changes and news.
  • Tywys is our brand-new channel for first year students, with all the key information you need to know every week, in one short video.
  • Specific emails related to different groups of students are being sent to International students, postgraduates and students in university accommodation, providing specific information that relates to their unique circumstances.

No doubt you will receive other emails in your inbox but please look out for those coming from a @cardiff.ac.uk address.
