About us

Glyndŵr University is the youngest university in Wales – an educational institution that champions the spirit of enterprise with an outward-facing philosophy. This has heralded an exciting new era for Wrexham, North Wales, the borderlands and the academic world.

The facilities are excellent, as you’d expect from a university that values the spirit of enterprise and puts employability at the heart of everything it does. Courses are designed to provide employers with exactly what they’re looking for and many have been created with their direct input. Support, both in helping students plan their careers and their lives outside of the world of work, is always on hand via our careers team, as well as other expert advisers and counsellors.

Accommodation

What are/were your halls like?

Username: Madders94

Comment: I stayed in Wrexham Village, the newer halls on campus. They only opened a couple of years ago so they're really new and modern, and they're a bit more expensive than the Student Village, but worth the expense! In the bedroom you get a single bed, a big desk, and the desk has two lots of four drawers to keep stuff in. Above the bed you've got four or five (can't remember) cupboards, good for keeping clothes and stuff in. There's like a walk in wardrobe kind of thing for clothes, and in the en-suite there's a toilet, a sink, a cupboard under the sink, a shower and a heated towel rail. In the kitchens you get two cupboards - one overhead and one under the counter (it'll have your room number on it). There's an oven, two lots of hobs, a table and chairs, two leather sofas, a fridge and a freezer, two sinks, and a big flatscreen TV on the wall with Freeview. It's definitely worth it to have somewhere in the kitchen/lounge that you can socialise and watch TV, because in student village it's like a picnic bench - but a lot of people liked living in student village so it can't be bad!
