Singleton Park Redevelopment

The redevelopment of the Singleton Park campus has already commenced with the completion of projects including the construction of Institute of Life Science 2 and improvements to energy performance and appearance – for example with re-cladding and works to the facades of Faraday Tower and Keir Hardie building. 

Fulton House is being upgraded in a phased manner, initially incorporating the creation of a commercial zone on the west side of the ground floor to enhance the student experience. 

Phase 2 consists of the demolition of buildings on campus which enables the reconfiguration and redevelopment of space on the Singleton Campus.

Refurbishment for Physics Labs

Refurbishment for Physics Labs

A generous bequest made to the Physics Department by Dr Gething Morgan Lewis FRSE, an eminent physicist who grew up in Ystalyfera in the Swansea Valley and was educated at Brecon College, meant that  new state-of-the-art laboratories and teaching rooms were able to be opened.

Professor Lyn Evans, one of Swansea University’s most distinguished graduates and who led the international project to build the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, returned to Swansea University to officially open the laboratories and teaching rooms.


Science and Innovation Campus

The Science and Innovation Campus will enable the University to ‘break out’ of its current estate constraints, providing space for growth and facilitating increased collaboration with industry. It will deliver a next generation ‘Science Park’, co-locating University and industry researchers, students and academics – not only on the same site, but using the same laboratories and facilities.

Phase 1 of the Science and Innovation campus will include:

  • Innovation Hub and Manufacturing Facility co-locating industry and College of Engineering research.
  • Undergraduate teaching and research facilities for the College of Engineering and Schools of Business and Economics.
  • Student facilities including an auditorium, retail, leisure and sports facilities
  • Learning & Resource Centre library and associated resource facilities
  • Student residences for up to 1,000 students
  • Swansea Materials and Research Testing (SMaRT). Materials testing centre to include testing for Rolls Royce of new and existing materials that are used in the aerospace and aero engine industries.
