Student & Guest Parking

Swansea University encourages all of its staff and students to use public transport as much as possible – sustainability is at the heart of the University’s ethos and has seen it achieve ‘First Class Degree’ status in The Guardian ‘Green League’.

However, we appreciate that some students are unable to use public transport due to where they live, their childcare arrangements, their disabilities, or for other reasons.
