As you know, Swansea’s Biggest Weekend is nearly upon us and, as previously communicated, we have been assisting local partners and the organisers to deliver this important event for the city and region.

There will be some short term impact on the campus during the remainder of the week and over the course of the event weekend, and we do very much appreciate your patience and apologise for any inconvenience.

Access to the Campus

We anticipate the campus being very busy over the event weekend. If you do need to access the campus over the course of the weekend, you will need to show a valid student or staff ID card.

Although there will be parking available to staff and student permit holders in unaffected car parks, parking will be extremely limited and we would not advise you to park on campus unless absolutely necessary.

Affected Car Parks

Information about affected car parks is available in the attached PDF document.

Enhanced Security Presence on Campus

Please note that our security services and the police will be patrolling the campus and vicinity from Friday through to Sunday. Security services will be checking student and staff IDs over the course of the weekend. If you notice anything suspicious, please do report it to our on site security team (01792 604271) or to the police.

Information About the Event

Information for residents including details about road closures is available here:

 Following a successful De-stress event we are offering informal drop-in sessions for staff and students in the Chaplaincy (Fulton House) and in the Bay Campus Library each Tuesday and Thursday from 12pm – 2pm during the exam period.

The sessions will start on Thursday 17th May. These sessions are open to all staff and students, from any faith or none. There will be a quiet room set aside for those who just want to chill out and spend some quiet time on their own and there will always be at least one chaplain around to have a chat and cuppa with. Please make this known in your college.

Information will also be shared via Campus Life’s social media platforms and on posters across the University. We will be organising a similar drop-in at Bay Campus and will be let you know the times and dates of these.
