It’s part of the central square regeneration scheme in Cardiff city centre
Cardiff University’s School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies will be moving from the Bute Building to a new facility at the Central Square regeneration scheme in the centre of Cardiff.

JOMEC are expected to make the move in September 2018.

With regards to working with the BBC, Professor Allan has stated that “will make this a centre of excellence that will be genuinely world-class.”
It will include:
-300 seat lecture theatre
-Dedicated editing suites.
-TV and radio studios
-Postgraduate research space.
-Library and innovation and stakeholder engagement lab.
