Project Description


Computer Science and Mathematics Facility, Cardiff University

Cardiff University is consulting on its plans to develop a new purpose-built computer science and mathematics building.

The 10,000m2 building will bring together the School of Computer Science and Informatics (COMSC) and the School of Mathematics (MATHS) into one world-leading facility.

The building on Senghennydd Road will support the growth of both departments and provide opportunities for greater collaboration and research.

The site, currently used as a University car park, is on the Cathays campus next to the Cardiff Business Technology Centre, Students’ Union and Cathays railway station.

It was selected following a feasibility study in summer 2016 that took into account criteria such as location, availability, size and public transport links.

The project forms part of the University’s biggest campus upgrade for a generation, including an investment of £260m in its teaching, learning and student experience.

Other current projects include the Centre for Student Life – a new home for student support services including social study spaces, consultation rooms and a 550-seat auditorium.
