The 65-acre, beach-side campus has been under development since March 2013 and is on schedule to open in September this year. Its full conference and event facilities will be available from the summer of 2016, but certain packages will be available for private hire from October this year.
The campus conference facilities will be centred round the multi-purpose Great Hall complex, which features a 700-seat auditorium, three lecture theatres and several other breakout rooms.
The complex will also have a mezzanine-level catering facility and flat-floor auditorium space, which will be available for use with receptions, launches and exhibitions. All of the rooms will have audio-visual capabilities.
The campus will also have at least 600 bedrooms available for use during the summer months, and has a private beach that can be used for outdoor activities and teambuilding exercises. It is five minutes from Swansea city centre and can offer dining and shopping facilities for delegates, as well as a sports hall.
Its conference offers and packages will become available in April 2015.
Last month, Swansea University released a video (below) with an overview of the new Bay Campus and a glimpse of the stunning event facitilies that will be part of the development.
