Once open for the new university year, the £45m Oldway Centre, on High Street, will be home to more than 550 students.

The development of the 13-storey landmark block reflects Swansea Council regeneration plans which will see many more people living in the city centre.

It was developed by Oldway Centre Swansea, part of the Midos Group, physically transformed by WRW Construction and is being managed by Omnia Space.

Council leader Rob Stewart was given a tour of the revamped building.

The Oldway Centre is due to open as planned at the start of the 2019 university autumn term.

Cllr Stewart said: "Purpose-built student accommodation will help to bring vibrancy to the city centre. Additionally, it will help to reduce the demand for HMO conversions in neighbouring local communities.

"New student accommodation is just part of the mix of new living accommodation, shops, restaurants and leisure attractions being created in our new city centre."
