Community @ Campus Life

Moving out and making friends are big parts of many people’s University experience. Swansea University is in its Centenary and has seen the landscape of the surrounding areas shift dramatically with the generations of students coming to study here.

Community@CampusLife exists to provide services that help build cohesion between student and non-student residents living in the region.

Our main purpose is to assist students to make the very best of their time at Swansea University and to ensure that the University benefits the community with its presence.  We recognise the impact that a large student population can have on the community, so we work to improve relationships between student and non-student residents and demonstrate the positive impact Swansea University students have on the city.

Welfare @ Campus Life

Starting University is a big transition for everyone. It's normal to experience mixed feelings and so Welfare@CampusLife are here to provide you with practical advice and guidance on a range of topics from homesickness to registering with the GP.

Welfare are a team within Campuslife whose aim is to improve the student experience in Swansea University. We work closely with staff in colleges, other support services within the university and external partners such as the Police and Public Health Wales to ensure that students receive the best support when they are experiencing welfare issues whilst studying.

We regularly schedule classes on the skills that we have found students would like to learn and have increased in variety over the years. Skills for Life sessions vary from First Aid and Cooking to Film Photography and Navigation. We ran 35 sessions last year teaching 23 unique skills on both campuses and in the local community. We believe possessing a variety of life skills enables you to deal with life’s inevitable difficulties and adversities more effectively.

For more information on the team please visit Welfare @ CampusLife.
