University of Wales Trinity Saint David Lampeter
Lampeter is a picturesque campus, delivering a unique and personalised learning experience in beautiful rural Wales.
Contrary to the typical student lifestyle, Lampeter offers an alternative, refreshing university experience, where every student can make a visible difference to their local community, through both university and town projects.
There is a vibrancy and energy within the town, where students are welcomed into Lampeter are encouraged to take an active role in the local community through voluntary projects, working part-time, and participating in local events, including the annual Food Festival, the Christmas Fayre and events at the Victoria Hall.
Likewise, UWTSD welcomes its local Lampeter community to visit the campus, and come along to our events.
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.
The Old Hall also contains paintings of various principals, presidents, benefactors, vice-chancellors et al. including the founder of the University Bishop Thomas Burgess, Maurice Jones, Thomas Price, Llewelyn Lewellin, Edward Harold Browne, Keith Robbins and Brian Robert Morris.
