Swansea University's Hendrefoilan student village has been sold to regeneration specialist St Modwen who plans to build around 300 new homes on the site. St Modwen intends to submit a planning application for the 52 acres site residential project in the next six months. Hendrefoilan is currently made up of a student village with campus accommodation for up to 1,644 students attending Swansea University. The proposed development is at present scheduled to begin in late 2015 and will be undertaken using a managed process.

   

South Wales Regional Director for St Modwen, Rupert Joseland, said: “The development will have excellent links to Swansea city centre, Swansea Bay and the Gower Peninsula. It presents a golden opportunity for St Modwen to create an exclusive residential development of around 300 high quality homes in the prosperous Swansea West ward.”

   

Professor Iwan Davies at Swansea University said: “The sale and redevelopment of the Hendrefoilan Student Village is in preparation for Swansea University’s new £450m Bay Campus. The University is creating a unique learning, teaching and living environment including student residences at the Bay Campus which will open in September 2015.”
