SAWSA - Architecture Society

W E L C O M E  /  C R O E S O !

Welcome to SAWSA! The Student Association at the Welsh School of Architecture! SAWSA is the leading student community at Cardiff University for those interested in the fields of architecture and design. Whether you're studying architecture, city planning, engineering, geography or you're simply a graduate/undergraduate who loves design - we warmly welcome you to join our diverse and exciting SAWSA family!

SAWSA's committee for 2021-2022 is already busy organising an exciting calendar of events throughout the year to help make your university experience as brilliant as possible! Despite COVID-19, we're certain we can make sure this year is as busy as ever, and continue to provide opportunities for students outside of study to meet up, spend time together, share architectural and design knowledge, and most of all, relax!

Membership of SAWSA will open the door to a world of events such as:

  1. Regular alcoholic and non-alcoholic socials
  2. Guest lectures by architects and other design professionals
  3. Creative workshops such as life drawing
  4. Sketch crawls across the city of Cardiff
  5. Day trips to different cities
  6. House parties
  7. Picnics and get-togethers in the park (when it's not raining...)
  8. Major socials such as the formal Winter and Summer Balls
  9. MAYBE a week trip to Venice in summer!

To keep track of SAWSA events and socials, make sure to get a membership and follow us on all our social media (especially our Insta since we mainly post updates on that)!

Hope to see you soon!
