We write local, campus news that students want to read

We are students writing for students. From reporting that waiting times for the Counselling and Wellbeing team are growing at an alarming rate to the visa crisis for international students, The Cardiff Tab are dedicated to reporting stories that students truly care about.

Even when the news gets all doom and gloom, we write about campus life with our clubbers of the week updates, nightlife news and even dating help.
