Xpress Radio is a student radio station based at Cardiff University in Cardiff, Wales, focused on current, popular and new music. The station broadcasts from 9am–1am daily, with programming ranging from comedy panel shows and film review shows to new and local music showcases. It has won multiple national student radio awards.

Xpress is run by students at the university, and funded by the Students' Union. It operates from a studio on the third floor of the Students' Union building.

Every year, Xpress provides live coverage of the Welsh Varsity sporting events between the Cardiff University and Swansea University, including a full live commentary of the men's rugby match in the evening.
