New campus name revealed
SWANSEA University's new campus will be one of just a handful in the world with direct access onto a beach and its own seafront promenade.
And the seaside location is now reflected in the name it has been given.
The new 65-acre development located on Fabian Way will be known as the Bay Campus.
The existing site will be known as the Singleton Park Campus.
Revealing the names yesterday university bosses said the development programme heralds a new era for the organisation.
It said the old and new campuses will be closely linked to maintain the student experience and support the ever-increasing, multi-disciplinary research undertaken with industry across its academic colleges.
Professor Iwan Davies, Pro Vice-Chancellor, said: "We have all enjoyed our stunning Singleton Park Campus and we look forward to the prospect of occupying the Bay Campus from September 2015.
"It will have the distinction of being one of the few global campus universities with direct access onto a beach and its own seafront promenade.
"This allows the university to market itself widely as one occupying prime locations within a park and on a beach."
In addition to the new name, the university will also have additional postcodes for the Bay Campus — SA1 8EN and SA1 8EP.
A news page has also been launched, which will be updated with latest news and details of developments and events at the Bay Campus.
The university's ambitious expansion plans include the regeneration of the existing Singleton Park Campus.
