The University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD) is a new uni, being formed in 2010 after the merger of the University of Wales Lampeter and Trinity University College Carmarthen.
The uni is set across three main campuses in southwest Wales – Carmarthen, Lampeter and Swansea. It also has sites in Birmingham, London and Cardiff. Each of the main campuses has its own facilities, including food and coffee outlets and social spaces.
Carmarthen campus houses the Halliwell Theatre which puts on various shows and events, while the Swansea campus’s iconic Alex Reading Room is great for entertainment. Other student services you can use include the Students’ Union and the wellbeing support team, who offer counselling and mental health services.
Outside the campuses, you’ll find plenty to do wherever you’re based. Swansea has great nightlife and a beach, while Carmarthen is a thriving town. Lampeter has a busy commercial centre, with shops and places to eat and drink. You’ll find both Carmarthen and Lampeter campuses close to their respective town centres.
Being in southwest Wales, you’ll have access to the great outdoors too, meaning there are opportunities for walking, hiking, biking and golf, as well as the water activities you can do such as surfing.
