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:
“My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave, I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves, I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone, I would also do that.”
—Abraham Lincoln (18091865)
“To get a man soundly saved it is not enough to put on him a pair of new breeches, to give him regular work, or even to give him a University education. These things are all outside a man, and if the inside remains unchanged you have wasted your labour. You must in some way or other graft upon the mans nature a new nature, which has in it the element of the Divine.”
—William Booth (18291912)
