Why host an event at a University?

Looking to host an event but not sure why you would choose a university over a purpose-built conference venue? We’ve put together 5 reasons why Swansea University would be the perfect place to host your next conference or event.

Location, Location, Location
Our University is a unique location to host your next event or conference. Set across two campuses, the historic Singleton Park Campus is set in the beautiful Singleton Park and the new Bay Campus is located right on the beach.
We have numerous types of venues on our sites from the original 1920s Abbey to the newly built Great Hall.

One Stop Shop
On our campus grounds, we really do have it all. State-of-the-art facilities, security, catering, on-site gym, libraries, supermarkets, AV equipment, vast range of room spaces, accommodation and so much more.

Food Glorious Food
Any type of event you require, there will be a suitable space on campus to host it. The same goes for our catering, whether you’re looking for a small lunch for 20 or a dinner for 300 – our on-site catering can do it all without sacrificing quality or service. We can cater to any dietary requirements and tailor any menu to your specific event.

Rest Easy
Our 3* rated budget accommodation is based right on the campus, with 2,000 rooms available at the Bay and 1,100 at Singleton – you’ll be spoilt for choice.

It’s in the atmosphere
At our university campuses, there’s always something going on. From community fridges outside Fulton House, Bingo Lingo in the refectory to BUCS games at the sports park, the atmosphere on campus is unmatched. There will always be friendly faces around and some form of entertainment to suit everyone.
