Some of the first students who studied at Swansea University found themselves in a strange situation: many of their lectures, tutorials and even laboratory sessions took place within Singleton Abbey, which only ten years before had been the country home of the Vivian family.

This picture shows how the Vivian’s dining room became a lecture theatre. It is now the Council Chamber.

Sandra and Bob Cuthill will definitely be among those raising a glass to Swansea University when it marks its centenary this month.

The couple met while geography students more than 50 years ago. And that meeting didn’t just lead to a long happy marriage, four children and six grandchildren, it also sparked a shared passion for Swansea City FC.

The couple, now both retired, live in Swansea and have fond memories of their days at Singleton Park Campus.The University back then had just 3,000 students, it has changed but Sandra says one thing remains the same:

“The seaside location made Swansea so different, especially for people like me from the North of England – they used to call it Butlin’s-by-the-Sea. You could just walk out of the drive and on to the sand dunes and stroll to Mumbles or sunbathe between lectures – or degree exams.”
Bob said: “Sandra and I both went to grammar schools where the expectation was your first aim was to get into Oxford or Cambridge and if you couldn’t get into them then the University of Wales, College of Swansea wasn’t really on the radar. But it was a good choice and we have so much to be grateful to Swansea for.”
