Equipment and facilities
Our world-class facilities attract leading academics from across the globe and enables them to pursue their research ambitions.
We invest significantly in our estate each year to provide modern and well-equipped facilities. Our campus development programme includes work being undertaken at the new Maindy Park campus. Maindy Park is being developed specifically to house our Research Institutes and Centres and to offer outstanding facilities for interdisciplinary research.
The first building on the new campus, the £30m Hadyn Ellis Building, was completed in 2013. It offers highly-advanced facilities for some of our world-leading research teams.
The programme also includes the new Cochrane Building at the Heath Park Campus, providing improved facilities for all five healthcare Schools, and a £4m extension to the School of Biosciences.
As part of the GW4 partnership we are working with the University of Bath, University of Bristol and the University of Exeter to make our research equipment more visible and easier to share.
The GW4 Equipment website allows academic and technical staff to search for larger pieces of research equipment owned by the GW4 universities.
In addition to this, we have our own cross-University research equipment database for smaller equipment.
