About Us

Swansea University’s vision is to be a research-led University of international quality.

In order to fulfil this mission and deliver on its strategic objectives, the University needs to offer an outstanding student and staff experience by providing an environment in which teaching, research, innovation, recreation and business activities can flourish within a modern and sustainable estate.

The Estates & Facilities Management Directorate

The Estates & Facilities Management Directorate assists the University in fulfilling its strategic aims through the careful planning, management and maintenance of the physical estate and delivering a wide range of essential services which impact daily on campus users and stakeholders; from staff and students to visitors and contractors. 

The Directorate is organised into three focused and functionally aligned sections:

  • Commercial, Sport & Campus Services
  • Estate Services
  • Safety, Health and Environmental (SHE) Services
