Modern and cosmopolitan with its waterfront development, café quarters and thriving student population, Swansea is also Dylan Thomas country, steeped in tradition, culture, and character.

The campus is close to the old fishing village of Mumbles, whose unique seaside atmosphere is complemented by a vibrant social scene popular with students. Travel just a few minutes in the other direction and you reach the Maritime Quarter, a modern waterfront village complete with restaurants, art gallery, theatre and a busy marina.

The 20,000+ seat Liberty Stadium is home to Premiership football club Swansea City and Ospreys Rugby.  It also hosts major pop and rock concerts.

The Gower Peninsula, Britain's first "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty", is within easy reach from the University.
