Meeting and event spaces that inspire
Swansea University has everything your event needs...
Uniquely offering two first class campuses, one set in a park and another on a beach, they have been hosting events of all shapes and sizes in Swansea for almost a century amongst our hundreds of affordable and versatile meeting rooms.
Bay Campus: Centred around our iconic, multi-purpose Great Hall with its 700 seat Auditorium with retractable seating and numerous breakout spaces, their state-of-the-art Bay Campus is the perfect location for events of any kind.
Singleton Campus: From well-appointed lecture theatres to large, flat-floor spaces, we can accommodate a variety of events. We offer state-of-the-art IT and video conferencing facilities, as well as access to their internationally renowned sports village.
Campus Facilities: Swansea University has excellent facilities including cafés and bars, coffee shops, and supermarkets. Their enviable location on Swansea Bay also means there is a beach, literally on our doorstep.
Catering: Excellent event catering can help create a truly memorable delegate experience, so whether you are running a residential conference for hundreds of international delegates, or hosting an intimate business lunch, the experienced catering team will work with you to develop a dietary friendly menu that fits perfectly with the essence of your event.
Accommodation: From July-September, Swansea University offers delegates the convenience of staying on campus in affordable accommodation. With three levels of servicing: bronze, silver and gold, there is an accommodation package for all budgets.
Event Management: Their dedicated Event Services team have years of experience and understand what it takes to make an event a success. With the full Event Experts package, they will manage your event for you from start to finish. Alternatively, if you prefer to take control of the event yourself but outsource certain elements, they can build a bespoke package to fit your needs.
The secure campus and comfortable accommodation make our students feel safe – for many it’s their first time away from home. The food is great and caters for different dietary needs which is so important with a large group of students.

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.
Swansea University , International Dylan Thomas Prize
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.
