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.

– Professor Colin Riordan, Vice-Chancellor
