New University Campus on SA1 Waterfront

Exciting prospects ahead for Swansea’s School of Applied Computing as plans to create a vibrant new multi-million pound university campus in Swansea are underway following an agreement by the Welsh Government to sell six substantial development plots on SA1 Swansea Waterfront to the University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD).

The newly merged institution has considered a number of options to consolidate its estate in Swansea and require a new, purpose built central campus within the city. With its close proximity to the city centre the SA1 development has been identified by UWTSD as the ideal location to develop a new campus providing modern education and research facilities and recreational opportunities for students.

The University is also keen to work closely with businesses and develop links with the private sector through a range of initiatives from applied research through to incubation units and spin off business enterprises.

Professor Medwin Hughes, UWTSD Vice-Chancellor, said: “We are grateful to the Welsh Government for its support in enabling the University to realise its vision for a new city university campus, bringing together and celebrating the excellent work that has been developed over the years by our Swansea Metropolitan campuses. This prime waterfront location in the heart of the city will transform the educational experience for staff and students. It will enable UWTSD Swansea to provide a vibrant city experience, connecting academia with innovation, enterprise, businesses and the community.

The student experience is central to our plans. We will develop a range of innovation hubs in different disciplines bringing together the expertise and creativity of our staff. That is the University’s commitment to transform education and by doing so, making a positive contribution to the Swansea Bay City region.
