The University of Wales Swansea is situated in the centre of the South Wales coastline. The main campus lies within Singleton Park on the broad sweep of Swansea Bay, between the City of Swansea and the old fishing village of Mumbles. The beautiful Gower Peninsula, with its famous beaches and tranquil countryside, lies immediately to the west. The Singleton Campus is well known for its marvellous coastal location. [Map]
