Heath is located a little bit further out of the city centre than Roath and Cathays and is quieter. The area is mainly populated by third-years, postgraduates and families.


Heath, which is close to the Heath Park Campus, is especially good for those doing medicine-based/healthcare courses due to its close proximity to the Heath Park campus and the University Hospital of Wales. 

Key features

  • Close to the Heath Park Campus
  • Close to Heath Park - a generous park with tennis courts, mini golf, rugby fields and a miniature railway

For the outdoor types, Heath Park offers lots of space for running, outdoor sports and also a mini golf course!
