Faraday and Talbot Building
The Faraday Building houses large teaching rooms and lecture theatres, research laboratories and computer labs. The building has recently been refurbished to improve facilities for students.
The Faraday Tower is home to the Students’ Union (SU), who have 6 elected Full-time Officers who are available daily, representing different sectors of the SU. The SU work across both Bay and Singleton campuses, have 4 shops, 3 bars and run over 280 events for students every year.
The Students’ Union are also responsible for over 100 sport clubs and societies, ranging from Amnesty International, Debating and subject-specific societies, to sports such as rugby, swimming, cheerleading and the ever-popular ‘ultimate frisbee’, to passion/hobby-based societies such as ‘Disney’ and Fashion. More information on our clubs and societies can be found here.
The Advice and Support Centre is also located in Faraday, run by the SU and a team of trained advisors to provide free, impartial, and confidential advice and representation. They can support you through a number of legal issues and personal matters, across money, welfare, academic, housing and mental health struggles.
Talbot is home to The GO GLOBAL TEAM. The Go Global Team within the International Development Office helps Swansea University students pursue a range of opportunities abroad. This includes a year or semester abroad, studying at one of our partner universities or completing a work placement or teaching assistantship. Opportunities available will depend on your subject area. The team also assists students who would like to gain volunteering, cultural or academic experience during the summer, with a variety of international summer programmes open to all degree schemes. Full details can be found here, along with information about the funding and support available.
As you leave the Faraday Building, the Taliesin Arts Centre and the Egypt Centre will be on your left.
