Our New Flagship Café-Bar Needs Naming- Win a £100 Dining Card!

Mon 23 Feb 2015

Your chance to make a mark on the history of Swansea University

bar bay campus

Flagship café-bar name needed – win a £100 Dining Card

This is your chance to make a mark on the history of Swansea University.

With just over six months to go until the opening of the Bay Campus, our new flagship café-bar is in need of a name.

Submit your suggestions by Friday 6th March and if your suggestion is accepted then you will be rewarded with a £100 Dining Card that can be used in any Campus Catering outlets.

However - this prize pales into insignificance alongside the chance to be the person that gave the bar its name. Generations of students will marvel at your genius.

To submit your suggestion visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/QWVD5T6.

The café-bar will be the most exciting feature of the retail street at the Bay Campus. Contemporary coffee shop and general chill out area by day, relaxed and funky bar by night, it needs a name that will reflect its status as the place to be.

The café-bar will be styled with beach and watersports influences, with a retro touch and echoes of a bygone era. Customised furniture and decorations will ensure that it is an oasis of calm amid a busy and modern campus. 

It’s one of several outlets at the Bay Campus, which will include a main food court with multiple pods serving a mix of traditional foods, street food and internationally influenced cuisine. There will also be catering outlets in the College of Engineering, School of Management, Library and Great Hall. Keep an eye out too for new menus and developments on the Singleton Park Campus.

Themes to consider are:

  • Welsh heritage and identity
  • Beach and waterfront  
  • Industrial heritage of the site and Swansea University
  • Science and innovation
  • Natural environment and Crymlyn Burrows SSSI

Also don’t forget that:

  • The name must not infringe any existing trademarks or copyrights
  • The name must be acceptable across the University’s multi-cultural student community
  • The name must not be inappropriate or offensive!

If you have any queries please email to m.e.ocarroll@swansea.ac.uk

Building 'castles' for the future students of Swansea University

Wed 26 Nov 2014

Swansea University has unveiled the names of its new Bay Campus students residences

Swansea University has today unveiled the names which will be given to the new students residences following the opening of the Bay Campus in September 2015.

Whilst the development programme heralds a new era for Swansea University,  the recognition of the role that Welsh heritage and culture has on attracting both local and international students has been firmly acknowledged. Through consultation with students, staff and St Modwen it was agreed that the student residence buildings should be named after our famous Welsh Castles and the Princes and Princesses of Wales. There are over 400 castles in Wales with many castles such as Dinefwr and Carreg Cennen dating as far back as the 12th Century, built to last by Lord Rhys, one of Wales’ first Princes of Wales.

Ceinwen Cloney, the President of Swansea University’s Student’s Union said:

“Honouring Welsh history through the naming of the residences is a great way to inspire new students to learn more about the rich culture of Wales’’

The residences are being built around stunning courtyards which connect each of the buildings providing a true community feel. The architecture of the student residences also reflects the ‘Castle’ themes with detail such as archways and balconies. Another similarity is that historically Castles were built at strategic locations next to the sea, students living at the Bay Campus will be able to enjoy sweeping views and access the beach from their own doorstep…

Ceinwen added: “Having seen the plans and the current building works going on, students are set to have an amazing space to live at the new Bay Campus.”

Students will be allowed to apply for accommodation at the Bay and Park Campus from January 2015.

The names of the thirteen residences are: Cadell, Cardigan, Carreg Cennen, Dinefwr, Dolbarden, Dryslwyn, Emlyn, Ewloe, Pen y Bryn, Gruffydd, Gwenllian, Llywelyn Fawr and Manorbier.

Fri 24 Oct 2014

The Union are putting your ideas in to action and helping you make a difference on campus.

leader-union

Student Forums are evolving and the next event is giving you the power to make a change at university.

The Union are asking students to tell us what change they would make if they were given the chance and these ideas will help shape our work over the next year and in to the future.

All students have been invited to join in the Student Forum taking place on the 4th of November and discuss what their priorities are. Even if you can't make the event itself we still want to hear from you and will work on your suggestions.

So far ideas have been rolling in and differences are already being made! If you'd like to be part of these changes then please tell us the one thing that has been really bothering you at university.

If the reward of making a difference isn't enough, we will also be supplying a free lunch at the event! So please come along at 1pm in the Hive and make your stamp at university.

Union rings in retail changes

Tue 02 Sep 2014

On-campus retailer becomes first in Wales to adopt ‘scan bag and go’ mobile payment technology

SWANSEA University is set to become the first in the Wales to adopt a revolutionary new payment system at its retail outlet, thanks to a mobile phone app that converts smartphones into cash registers.

The Costcutter store, based at the Students’ Union, will go live with the innovative ‘Mini Checkout’ app today, allowing it to offer a queue-free experience to students who can now scan, bag and go.

The app, pioneered by Newport retail services firm Retail Merchandising Services (RMS), allows shoppers to scan items’ barcodes and directly charges their bank account, saving the time that would have been spent queuing in store, ensuring a more convenient, less stressful shopping experience.

After downloading the app, consumers are asked to input their bank details into a secure database. Then, when shopping, they can quickly pay for the items in their ‘basket’, using their stored debit card details. When exiting the store, shoppers then scan a generated barcode on their smartphone against an optical scanner to verify their digital receipt for security purposes. 

With fees charged by credit cards companies to retailers ranging from up to 2.5% per transaction, this technology – available on Android and iPhone- only takes 1.5% of each transaction, with the remainder going to the retailer.

The app, which is being targeted at Britain’s 47,000 independent retailers, will be unveiled by veteran Welsh sprinter Christian Malcolm, who has joined the RMS team following his retirement.

Mr Malcolm, who started his professional career in 1998, ran his last Welsh Athletics International race earlier this month. He will now embark on the next stage of his career as an Ambassador for RMS, alongside CEO Peter O’Toole and CEO of the Celtic Manor resort Dylan Matthews.

Four-time Olympian Mr Malcolm will spearhead the marketing and rollout of Mini Checkout, with RMS aiming to export the technology globally.

In addition to its technology offering, the company provides a full range of retail services to major retail chains including store design and build, recruitment, training and distribution. Its client base includes national retailers such as Tesco, John Lewis, B&Q, Co-Op and Asda.

The firm, which increased sales by 229% between 2010 and 2012, won the ‘fastest growing firm in the retail and wholesale sector’ award at the 2013 Wales Fast Growth 50 awards and is targeting increased sales this financial year.  

Alongside that, its chief executive officer, Peter O’Toole, is the current Entrepreneur of the Year, scooping the award at the 2013 IWA / Western Mail Business Awards.

Peter O’Toole, CEO of RMS and Mini Checkout, said: 

“We are delighted to announce Swansea University as the first in the UK to sign up to Mini Checkout at its main retail outlet.

“This Costcutter store’s daily customers will be students and young people, all using smartphones and operating at 100mph and with the speed of this app, shopping here will be a much faster and more enjoyable shopping experience.

“With convenience stores seeking to expand and compete against major supermarkets, this technology puts them one step ahead, without having to invest in costly self-scan infrastructure and new tills. With this app, all shoppers need to do is scan, bag and go.”    

Christian Malcolm said:

“This new app will appeal to tech-savvy young people and will ease the pain of queuing in a busy student store. As everyone knows, I’m all about speed and that is exactly what Mini Checkout offers retailers.

“I’m also really excited join the RMS team I’m always seeking the next challenge in life and my next goal is to help retailers improve the customer experience.”

Peter added:

“It is with great pleasure that I announce Christian as a new member of the RMS team. His commitment to Welsh athletics over the last 15 years has been tremendous and hopefully if he can replicate half of that with us, we will be on to a winner.” 

Martin Caldwell, Swansea University Student’s Union Commercial Manager, said:

“We're always looking to be an innovative and forward thinking organisation, so we were very excited to be invited to take part in this project.

“We look forward to its future success”

Swansea leads the way in promoting the Welsh language

Tue 03 Jun 2014

Students have voted to become the first Union in Wales to adopt the NUS charter

Swansea has become the first students’ union in Wales to adopt the recommendations of NUS Wales’ Welsh Language Charter.

Students made history by voting to implement the charter with a resounding 79% yes vote after a motion was proposed.

The charter seeks to improve Welsh language provision and the experience of Welsh speaking students by outlining minimum standards for Unions. The move follows the new legal obligations on the Welsh language that all public bodies are obliged to adopt.

The motion proposer Lewys Arôn said “Equality and fair play are values that Swansea University, the union and local community support. By adopting the charter the Union takes a giant leap forward in its commitment to the Welsh language.

“The union has come on leaps and bounds this year in terms of provision and the passing of this motion is the accumulation of all the hard work done this year.”

A timeline for adoption will now be drawn up by the Union executive board.

 

Undeb Myfyrwyr Abertawe yw’r Undeb myfyrwyr cyntaf i fabwysiadu'r awgrymiadau gan Siarter Iaith NUS Cymru.

Gwnaeth myfyrwyr prifysgol Abertawe  creu hanes trwy bleidleisio o blaid gweithredu’r siarter gyda 79% o blaid mabwysiadu’r siarter yn dilyn cynnig a gafodd ei awgrymu.

Mae’r siarter yn ceisio gwella darpariaeth yr Iaith Gymraeg a phrofiad myfyrwyr sydd yn siarad yr Iaith trwy amlinelli’r safonau gofynnol I Undebau.

Gwnaeth y cynnig a awgrymwyd gan Lewys Arôn ddweud “Mae cydraddoldeb a chwarae teg yn werthoedd mae Prifysgol Abertawe, yr Undeb a’r gymuned leol yn cefnogi. Trwy fabwysiadu’r siarter mae’r Undeb yn cymryd cam enfawr ymlaen at ei ymrwymiad i’r Iaith Gymraeg.”

“Mae’r Undeb wedi mynd o nerth i nerth yn y flwyddyn yma o ran darpariaeth a’r pasio o’r cynnig yma, mae hyn o ganlyniad i’r holl waith a chafodd ei wneud eleni.”

Fe fydd llinell amser ar gyfer mabwysiadu’r siarter yn cael ei gynllunio gan  fwrdd Gweithredol yr Undeb.

Statement

Thu 10 Apr 2014

The Students' Union have released the following statement.

“The Trustee Board has taken a decision to suspend the President pending the outcome of an investigation. The suspension in this case is not a disciplinary act – it is a neutral act designed to protect him, and any complainant until the investigation has been completed.

As part of the suspension, we have asked that the President does not communicate with students unless authorised to do so. If you have any questions, please email the Union Manager: stuartrice@swansea-union.co.uk

The five elected officers are:

Ilana Cohen-Education Officer

Ceinwen Cloney-President

Jerry Isokiari-Societies and Services

Charlotte Peters-Sports Officer

Joel Gascoyne-Welfare Officer

The new team of officers will be in post from July and will be working hard to fulfil the manifesto points that encouraged students to elect them.

Full time officers are salaried full-time roles, acting as the student voice on campus and representing students to University management.

The Subject Rep elections were also held in campaign week for the first time this year and enjoyed a positive turnout.
