In 1836, a new college was opened in Pontypool, Monmouthshire. In 1893, the college was removed to Cardiff, Glamorgan, where a hostel in Richmond Road, previously used for women students attending the university was acquired. The College students were able to attend Cardiff University (formerly University College of Wales Cardiff). The South Wales Baptist College has continued to educate Baptist ministers throughout the 20th century.
