Bangor University focuses on improving the student experience, working with the Union to make sure your voice is heard. It's a unique location, with a tight-knit student community and plenty of opportunities to try new things. For our size, we're one of the most environmentally friendly unions in the UK, winning an NUS Green Impact award last year.

      Facilities

      The academic facilities are very good starting with the leisure centre being right at the doorstep of halls and offering a good student discount. There are several parts to the library each for a specific subject area such as scinece or arts with computers available as well as free wi-fi. The university buildings are all in walking distance fronm each other and offer two large as well as several smaller lecture theatres as well as coffee and vending machines everywhere. There are also several communal areas for quiet revision or researching as they also have free wi-fi. Overall the university has many well equipted facilities including the labs which are very modern and spacious with several animals being kept there in a variety of aquariums.

    • Creative scene

      Some creative English and film but no art department. Not a big art scene here either.

      Accommodation

      the newer halls of residence are very nice, older ones are not as nice and those in normal site and rathbone are good sizes but old the private landlord accomodation in bangor varies greatly, with some houses being very large and others being very small. some houses are not kept well but others are extremely well kept. The well kept ones tend to be those that have been bought for the landlords son/daughter and then rented out after they have left university

      Accommodation

      the new halls are very nice rathbone hall (where I lived first year) was awful, no real kitchen, shared bathrooms for over 8 people, broken beds, bars on windows. Private renting is hit and miss, mine was very nice, but Bangor has serious mold issues so take a good look around before you sign.

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.
