larger venue for serendipity, more general societies as there's more sports in comparison, more volunteering opportunities, work experience opportunities, more diverse nightlife. more support for students with work and in lectures, especially concerning those with mental health and disabilities. improve bangor 360, especially around results time. have cheaper bookshop as muse is now closed and books are expensive. have booklist and timetable available earlier for those in second year and above. morse support for local students as finding a place to rent was a nightmare and still haven't found anywhere, i now have to pay for a train to commute. better security concerning halls, as we had a homeless person sleeping under the stairs and two rooms were broken into during a 'party' while i was away, but nothing really was done. better activities during freshers to get corridors at halls to interact and then the entire hall itself too.×
Over 50 sports clubs and societies, with a perfect location situated near the Snowdonia national park and the Menai straightsReport

Though the different departments may have their facilities spread quite widely, all buildings are very well equipped and computer access is certainly not a problem. The various University libraries are extremely well stocked with books, journals and other essential literature.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
