About Swansea University
The University College of Swansea was founded in 1920 and first opened its doors on October 5, 1920. It was the newest of the University of Wales’ four colleges at the time. It was founded in 1916, following the recommendations of a Royal Commission. The institution was founded on what were thought to be the requirements and wants of the local community, particularly Swansea’s principal industries.
Swansea University is a public research university in the Welsh city of Swansea. It was founded in 1920 as University College of Swansea, the University of Wales’ fourth college. Following institutional changes within the University of Wales, it changed its name to the University of Wales Swansea in 1996. When the University of Wales became a non-membership confederal organisation and the former members became universities in their own right on September 1, 2007, the name Swansea University was legally adopted.
Swansea University has eight colleges scattered over its two campuses on the Swansea Bay shoreline. The Singleton Park Campus is located in Singleton Park, which is located west of Swansea city centre. The £450 million Bay Campus, which opened in September 2015, is in the Neath Port Talbot Area, near to Jersey Marine Beach to the east of Swansea city centre.
