Our sporting facilities are amongst the finest in Wales, allowing us to help you deliver first class sporting events in Swansea.

Study groups and summer camps have been making Swansea University their destination of choice for years – a testament to our first-class facilities and excellent value group accommodation, in addition to being closely located to the Gower Peninsula.
The conference provided us the ideal opportunity to highlight Wales on a global scale both in terms of culture and research. Swansea University’s Event Experts approached everything with a can do attitude and a smile. Catering were more flexible than Madonna in a ‘downward dog’, and they were so on it. The food was gorgeous and looked phenomenal.

The event was managed professionally and seamlessly and we are hugely grateful to the team. This is the third time we have held the Swansea University International Dylan Thomas Prize award ceremony at the Great Hall and we’ll be back again next year. Thanks again.

I have been very lucky to use Swansea University (Singleton and Bay Campus) on various projects for BBC/ITV and Channel 4. The welcome we have by the Events team at the University is unbelievable and their ability to make things happen is fantastic. With any filming there are always last-minute changes and the Events team at Swansea University have always a positive and calming attitude to any issue that might arise. I can honestly say with hand on heart that the team at Swansea won’t be beaten. The University has a range of different kind of areas that work for any filming project, be it labs/offices/walkways/ flats etc. Thank you to Swansea University Events team for making a location managers life so much easier. Carry on with the good work.

Well, what can I say. A huge thanks to you and everyone that was involved with the filming at Swansea Bay Campus. It was such a long process, from our first recce back in July 2022 to such a successful week of filming from our end. The Director and Producers are delighted with what was filmed and myself and my team are also very happy with how the week went. We were also very lucky with the weather to be fair. Everyone involved from the University were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We also really appreciated the last-minute changes that we gave on most days.
