The GymGym is central to the life of Welsh-medium University students in Swansea

Whether you’re a fluent Welsh speaker or just looking to practice your Welsh, the GymGym will give you a range opportunities to socialise with other Welsh speakers in an informal environment. It's a great opportunity to make new friends. The Welsh Society meets regularly organising a host of social activities through the medium of Welsh including rugby trips, gigs, and crawls, Inter Eisteddfodau and much more. The Welsh Society works closely with the Coleg Cymraeg Swansea Branch and also supports the University’s Welsh Language rugby and netball club, Rygbi a Phêl-rwyd Tawe.

In 2016-17 the Gym Gym was one of four Societies to receive 'Gold' within the Swansea University Student Union system. The society is now a 'Golden Society'.
