Celebrating Christmas in Swansea and food collection


Hello everyone,

Before I go into the main content of this post I just wanted to quickly mention the Christmas Charity Food Collection that is taking place in all Swansea Univeristy Accomodation.

The University has invited residents to support the food collection by donating items such as soup, beans, dried pasta, sauces and tinned food at collection points by the 14th December. All the donated itens will be taken to Swansea Young, Single Homeless Project whihc offers accomodation or tenancy support to 16-25 years olds who are vulnerable and homeless in the Swansea area. This is a worth while project and at a time where it is easy to get caught up in the festivity, it is good to remember and help out those who are less fortunate than ourselves. We all have something, whether it is that odd tin of soup flavour which your parents bought that you don’t like or that packet of unopened rice which we simply won’t get through in time, in our cupboards that we simply will not eat but rather than throwing it out why not give it to those in need.

The drop off points are:

Singleton- Preseli Reception

HSV- Reception, House 40

Bay- St Modwen Student Living Reception

Beck House- Reception.


On another note Swansea Univeristy is hosting the “Society Christmas Extravaganza” on Wednesday 9th December at 7pm.

This event starts with a reception in JC’s, followed by a Christmas party bus to the Bay Campus, where the main event will be taking palce in The Core.

This will be an evening of entertainment which is being provided by some of Swansea University’s fantastic socities. Things on offer are singing, dancing, games, films, a quiz and a fashion show.

The night will be rounded off with some live music, a Christmas disco and a bus back to Wind Street with FREE entry inot the Walkabout afterparty.

This is avaiable for just £5, so if you feel putting on a Christmas jumper, having a few drinks and gettting festive then click on the link below to buy you tickets!
