By Road

Travelling west on the M4 leave the motorway at junction 42 and follow signs for Swansea on the A483 (Fabian Way).
On crossing the River Tawe the A483 becomes the A4067. Continue west along this road, passing Sainsbury’s Superstore on the left-hand side of the road. After approximately 1.5 miles there is a footbridge over the road.

The University’s main entrance lies just before the footbridge and is controlled by traffic lights. As you approach the lights, keep to the right-hand lane and prepare to turn right into the University. There is a Visitors’ Car Park immediately right of the main entrance. There are large Park-and-Ride sites at Port Tennant and on the A483 east of Swansea, at Landore, on the A4067 north of the city. All sites are open from 7.00 am until 7.00 pm, Monday to Saturday. It currently costs £2.50 to leave your car all day in these secure environments and to ride by bus to and from the city centre.

From time to time the University will recommend that visitors use these sites when it is known that parking on the Singleton Park Campus or the adjoining Recreation Ground will either be in very short supply or wholly unavailable. In these circumstances, the University will arrange for coaches to run shuttle services to and from the campus direct from the Park-and-Ride sites.
