Cardiff University Students' Union (Undeb Myfyrwyr Prifysgol Caerdydd in Welsh) is the students' union for Cardiff University and the largest in Wales, and, like most other students' unions, aims to promote the interests of its students. It is located in Cathays, Cardiff, spanning between Senghennydd Road on the north-east side and Park Place on the south-west side.
The Union building is situated directly over the main railway going north from Cardiff to the South Wales Valleys, adjacent to the Cathays railway station. It has a shop, a restaurant, a pub (The Taf), a Night Club (Solus) and houses the studios of Xpress Radio (which is broadcast throughout the union), gair rhydd (Welsh for 'Free Word') student newspaper and the newly developed Cardiff Union TV (CUTV). Its biggest student services are the Athletic Union and Societies Membership, the Athletic Union having within the region of 5000 students actively registered each year.

Famous quotes containing the words union and/or university:
“The methods by which a trade union can alone act, are necessarily destructive; its organization is necessarily tyrannical.”
—Henry George (18391897)
“Poetry presents indivisible wholes of human consciousness, modified and ordered by the stringent requirements of form. Prose, aiming at a definite and concrete goal, generally suppresses everything inessential to its purpose; poetry, existing only to exhibit itself as an aesthetic object, aims only at completeness and perfection of form.”
—Richard Harter Fogle, U.S. critic, educator. The Imagery of Keats and Shelley, ch. 1, University of North Carolina Press (1949)
