The Values that support our Vision and Mission include:
• a strong commitment to equality and diversity;
• striving for excellence, integrity and innovation in every aspect of activity;

Our Student Disability & Dyslexia
service provides support, advice and information on disability-related issues to current and prospective students and staff working with disabled students to assist the University in creating an accessible learning environment.
Cardiff University has an Equality and Diversity Manager based in Human Resources
and a Disability Staff Network
to help us better understand the needs of our disabled staff.
We have two campuses and many buildings spread across the city. The Estates Division
has commissioned access surveys to our buildings and is subsequently implementing programmes of adjustments to the estate. In this way, access to our buildings for all students and staff is constantly being improved.
Cardiff University has a variety of accommodation available for disabled students, such as rooms with level access showers, flashing alarms and automatic doors. Requests for reasonable adjustments can be made at any time during your stay in University Residences
We have a number of equality and diversity policies
in place aimed at implementing our commitment to equality and diversity, eliminating discrimination, promoting equality of opportunity and promoting diversity and good relations between different groups.
The University’s Equality and Diversity Unit
provides information and advice in relation to the University’s equality policies.
