Precautionary Evacuation at Singleton Campus

The emergency services are dealing with an ongoing incident at Swansea University. There is no immediate risk to anyone but a number of buildings have been evacuated as a precautionary measure.

A review of chemical substances stored at the University has identified that one chemical could potentially be a hazard. The Fire and Rescue service were notified and attended the Singleton Park campus.   As a precaution, they advised that buildings adjacent to the chemical store be evacuated. 

The substance is being safely removed and disposed of under specialist guidance.  Until this is complete, the evacuated areas of the campus will remain closed.  This is likely to be until at least 6pm this evening.

Our apologies for the inconvenience caused.
