Normal site - ARFON - was AMAZING! It's nearly 2 grand cheaper than Fridd site accomodation, and while you don't have a private bathroom you do get cleaners! So don't think you'll be living in squalor all year...but bear in mind that you are in student accomodation! (no one expects it to be spotless) Normal site are the BEST at partying, we have the furthest to walk to town so we really make sure we make the best of a night out (and the takeaway lasts about the time of the walk back!) Don't let the distance put you off though, it's really only a 20 minute walk in flats.. Heels are a totally different story!×

I think that all University Halls have the strengths and weakness. There is a clear division of quality of rooms, but reflects the price so this is as expected. Depending on where you make friends is where you will spend most of your time, i personally did not get along with my flatmates, not because i didn't like them, not that they were bad people, they just weren't the kind of people i made friends with; therefore i spend a lot of time at friends in different buildings. I don't think you could say which halls has the most parties, or most exciting as it depends on the people living there, and if that is your kind of scene. As for the best facilities, they are all of high standard, but the more expensive ones are of a higher quality - as expected. As for Normal Site i have never been there, so i can not have an opinion on the facilities/social, i can only speak for Friddoedd Site.×

Bangor is one of the cheapest places to live as a student. For getting around Bangor itself... You can walk pretty much everywhere!! If you do not want to walk there are regular busses. There is pretty much ever supermarket within a 10 minute walk of each other. Student housing is very affordable.×

Getting value for money food is easy due to being so close to Morrisons which always has good deals. With a rail card the price of trains is very fair buses not so much. Part-time work is scarce apart from the summer but not very many places hire in winter in Bangor. If you work in a large company (River Island for example) getting a transfer would be the best route to finding a job.×

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.
