How to find us
WIMAT is located in Cardiff Medicentre, Heath Park, Cardiff CF14 4UJ on the site of the University Hospital of Wales.
We are conveniently situated to take advantage of the major road, air and rail transport links serving South Wales. In addition, the Heath Park site – one of the main hospital sites in Cardiff - is very well served by Cardiff Bus and Park & Ride services. Taxis are readily available and can be ordered through WIMAT by visitors making their return journeys.
Parking / Park & Ride
Unfortunately there is no parking available at the Medicentre. Please note the multi-story car park across the road only allows parking for up to 8 hours therefore as the majority of our courses exceed this time we encourage those travelling by car to use the Park & Ride scheme which is free, or use public transport if staying locally, to avoid receiving any parking notices. There is also some parking available in the park next to the campus, which can be accessed via King George V Drive - please zoom in on the map to see exact locations.
