By car:
Swansea is easily reached through the M4. To reach the Bay Campus, take Junction 42 and keep driving towards the city centre, the campus is on the left hand side of the road, opposite to the Bay Studios.

By train:
Direct trains from London Paddington to Swansea are available every hour (calling stations include Reading, Bristol Parkway, Cardiff). If traveling from the North, it is necessary to change in Bristol.

By plane:
The nearest airport is Cardiff, which is directly connected to some European cities (mostly with Flybe). Daily KLM flights to Amsterdam allow to reach anywhere in Europe with one change. Shuttles to and from the city centre and the central station are available.
Bristol airport is the second nearest option and offers more direct flights to Europe, many of which operated by EasyJet. Shuttles to and from the city centre and Temple Meads train station are available.
Flying to London is another opportunity, given the ease to find direct flights to at least one of the airports in the area (Heathrow, Stansted, Gatwick, Luton). Heathrow is the most conveniently located. Ground connections to Swansea include the train route mentioned above or National Express buses.
