2016

"It's quiet and peaceful."
"We're in a very nice location in the valleys with the atmosphere of a student town but also close to the life of Cardiff city."
"It's located in a town with good local facilities but parking is often an issue with little space available."
"As it is in the heart of the valleys it's easy access for those hoping to stay at home and travel to university on a day-to-day basis. The Treforest campus offers a range of facilities including Stilts restaurant, gym, accommodation, Starbucks and also conference rooms."
"A great library and other facilities."
"The university is spread over three campuses depending on the subject being studied and all are easily accessible. There is a shuttle bus between Glyntaff and Treforest. Student halls are a great place to meet new first years and make really good friends. There's a gym, pub and shop on campus."
"Campus is great but halls need to be bigger. It may not be an ideal location but it's only a train journey away from Cardiff city centre."
"It's a residential area in the valleys with good public transport links and near to the city centre."
"It's very quiet if you're not on the city campus and there isn't a lot that's student orientated. Uni accommodation is great."
"Location was great and the campus was fab. The library could do with being bigger but student accommodation was lovely."
