Swansea University celebrates its Centenary on July 19th 2020. This unique occasion in the University’s lifetime not only presents a brilliant opportunity to celebrate the University’s achievements and journey over the past 100 years but is also a time to focus on the bright future that lies ahead.

Throughout our Centenary year, we are commemorating the academic success and proud achievements of Swansea University's current and former staff, our students, and those of our alumni. Join us, as we take inspiration from our great past and signpost our future path.


The University wants to involve all past and present staff, and students in its centenary celebrations. It is a wonderful opportunity to showcase our excellence and demonstrate that we are a global university, proud of our Welsh industrial heritage.

Along with the fascinating material already held in the Archives, it is hoped that further archival material will be discovered to enhance and develop the existing collections. If you have any material that relates to the history of the University, we would be delighted to hear from you.
