Cardiff Council has granted planning permission for Cardiff University to begin construction on a £50m building at its Cathays Campus.
The Centre for Student Life is said to be part of the biggest campus upgrade in a generation.
The University says the new building will create a central hub for student support services as well as offering social learning spaces and a 550-seat lecture theatre.
This is a major investment in our students and their learning experience. Our students expect world-leading facilities and the Centre for Student Life will meet those high expectations. Our students and staff are not the only beneficiaries because this will be a landmark building for the people and city of Cardiff.

Education Secretary Kirsty Williams says the Welsh Government recognises there is more to do to raise standards here.
Ms Williams, who took on the education portfolio in May this year. said that while it would be the easy thing to 'rip up the plan and start again,' the government will continue to deliver its education reforms.
We can all agree we are not yet where we want to be. While we have seen a 10 point lift in our maths score, the results for science are disappointing.
Last month I invited the OECD to look at how we are doing in Wales; their advice to me was unambiguous: Stay the course, be brave, you are doing the right things.
The hard work is underway. We have plans in place to develop an excellent professional workforce, a new curriculum and we are introducing robust qualifications that will be nationally and internationally respected. But we recognise that there is more to do...
The easy thing to do would be rip up the plan and start again. But we owe it to our pupils, parents and the profession to do what is right. The OECD has identified Portugal as a country that has much improved. It has taken them 14 years, pursuing reforms that work and holding steady to the course. They took the much needed tough decisions and now they reap the rewards. Wales will have the courage to do likewise to ensure that we deliver our national mission of education reform.
