Swansea University

When term begins tomorrow, Swansea’s new Bay Campus will host its inaugural lectures.

The £450m, 65-acre development is home to the College of Engineering and School of Management and will house 1,445 students in new halls of residence, relieving the pressure on the smallest main site at any pre-1992 university.

Its focus will be on applied research with industry – the new Engineering Quarter will house two research institutes, where there will be collaborations with Rolls Royce, Tata Steel and BP in materials testing and energy safety.
