Cardiff University’s JOMEC may relocate to new £120m BBC Wales Headquarters

We’d be moving from the beloved 99-year-old Bute building

The Cardiff School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies has plans to move close to BBC Wales’ new £120 million headquarters.

It is thought that students of the UK’s leading journalism school could gain valuable work experience within the public service broadcaster if the move went ahead.

The relocation will also bring many benefits to the University, such as marketing through close proximity to the BBC headquarters.

The university school has an office requirement for 30,000 square feet and is being advised by local charter company Cooke and Arkwright, who are also considering other sites in the city centre.

In a joint statement Cooke and Arkwright and Cardiff University said:

“Cooke and Arkwright have been instructed to work with Cardiff University to consider the long-term home of the School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies.

“We are currently working closely together to explore all the possible options and no decisions have been made.”
