Our unique location

We match academic excellence with an enviable quality of life

A stone’s throw from the city centre both our campuses are on the beach, surrounded by mature parkland or SSSI land and on the edge of the beautiful Gower Peninsula. 

When you choose to study at Swansea University, you not only become part of an ambitious, research-led institution, but you also benefit from living in the one of the UK's most naturally beautiful regions.  It's no wonder many of our graduates choose to stay here long after their studies.

The moment you arrive, you'll notice a real sense of community and access all the benefits of city life combined with a superb seaside location.  If you want to stretch yourself intellectually – but enjoy yourself in the meantime – Swansea University could be the right choice for you.
