University of Wales Trinity Saint David Campus
Our Campuses and Location
University of Wales Trinity Saint David Campus, UWTSD has three main campuses in South West Wales – Carmarthen, Lampeter and Swansea ‒ and satellite campuses in Cardiff and London. Each offers a different kind of student experience while all share a friendly, community atmosphere.
The Lampeter campus includes a number of academic, utility and residential buildings
Charles Robert Cockerell designed the original college building, now called the Saint David’s Building (informally known as Old Building or OB by students) in the centre of the grounds. It is a Grade II* listed building and contains lecture rooms, administrative offices, student residential accommodation and the following three main areas:
The Old Hall was the College dining hall until the Lloyd Thomas refectory was opened in 1969, and later fell into disuse until 1991 when it was re-opened after much restoration; it is now used as one of the university’s principal venues for meetings, dinners and conferences and is often hired out to outside organisations. It is also used for examinations and occasional lectures.
Although its foundation and indeed its speciality lies in Education, the Campus now also teaches a variety of degrees in subjects such as sport, health and nutrition, religious and Islamic studies, Psychology, social inclusion, creative arts, photography, film and drama, business and tourism, and English and creative writing. The Carmarthen Campus is the base of two of the university’s three faculties.
The campus is centred around the original 1848 Old Building of Trinity College. It originally contained all of the original dormitories, common rooms, libraries, an original university quadrangle and teaching spaces. The building today houses several lecture theatres and smaller classrooms often used by the university’s school of Justice and Social Inclusion (including Psychology) and, Theology, Religious Studies and Islamic Studies.
Founded in 1853, the Swansea campuses have a reputation for innovative industry-led and career-driven programmes.

Swansea, with its city-centre campuses dedicated to art and design, business and management, education, communities and performance as well as architecture, computing and engineering, gives students easy access to shopping, recreation and relaxation opportunities plus a magnificent beach and the stunning Gower coast just a few miles up the road.

Our exciting new Waterfront Innovation Quarter in SA1 is even closer to the beach. Its purpose-built teaching and learning locations are designed to nurture collaboration between the university, employers and start-up businesses.
The university’s London Campus opened in 2012 and is located in Winchester House on Cranmer Road in the London Borough of Lambeth. The campus hosts MBA programmes run by the university’s School of Business, many of which courses are aimed at attracting overseas students.
