The best control to combat Covid-19 is to practice good hygiene, such as handwashing, and maintain social distancing.  However, it is not always possible to keep distant from others as we move around campus or unavoidably find ourselves in a more enclosed area.

Face masks or suitable face coverings are an added layer of protection to reduce the risk of transmitting Covid-19 to others or contracting it yourself.  The Covid-19 operational group this week revisited our position on face masks in light of the current circumstances.

Face masks must therefore be worn by staff and students: (more…)

Soon after the University College of Swansea was established in Singleton Park, it became clear that the Abbey and its surrounding buildings were not suitable for all the scientific and practical work that a University needed to undertake.

From the mid-1920s, a series of demountable pavilions, or Nissen  ‘huts’ were built in the grounds of the park, to the north-west of the Abbey. The Physics building was a single, long hut set behind the Chemistry and Metallurgy departments. Although the huts would later become a little run-down, they were of good quality in the 1920s, containing sophisticated equipment.

Swansea’s town and its surrounding region was heavily impacted by the war, and particularly by three days of aerial bombardment in February 1941. Much of daily life was geared towards the war effort, including at the University.

Singleton Park, which due to its distance from the town’s centre and docks, was a safer place. It became the home of other university and government departments like the Royal School of Mines.

Some students were also drafted into the Home Guard, or ‘Dad’s Army’. Their job was to patrol the shoreline of Swansea Bay two nights a week to look for unexploded bombs and shells. They also took part in drills and exercises, although some from the time remember bunking off from these and hiding in Singleton Park where they would play games.

The Home Guard was one of many ways in which the University helped the War effort. Some former or current students even paid the ultimate price: twenty-eight were killed and their names can be found on the memorial in Fulton House.
