Bangor University

Student review
By eggsandbacon

11/10 Great area, not a large city for those who are unsure of moving into a large one such as London, Manchester, Liverpool etc. Everything you need is in Bangor and if you want a change of scene, Llandudno is only 18 minutes away on the train. The activities to do cover everything which is ever needed and the close proximity too the coast and snowdonia national park means that outdoor activities are one of the most popular things too join. Everyone is super friendly and happy to help you in anyway. The clubs/pubs and university run clubs are inviting and inexpensive.

Student Life in Bangor

Pontio Arts and Innovation Centre

Bangor is consistently rated as one of the best places to be a student and the quality of the student experience is another great reason to choose to study here.

Bangor is in a stunning location between the mountains of Snowdonia and the sea and is one of the best places for access to the great outdoors. You relax on beautiful beaches, explore stunning mountain trails, or enjoy taking part in some of the student activities on offer. With around 160 free clubs and societies to join, the lifestyle on offer is exceptional.

There are many great pubs in town to explore as well as night clubs. It’s all in walking distance, too - so no worrying about catching the last bus or train home. The new Pontio centre at the university is the home of the Students’ Union and also has a theatre, a cinema and an exhibition space.

Travel Information

Bangor University isn’t just beautifully situated, it’s conveniently located too. There are good road links to Bangor along the north Wales coast from the M56 and M6, and direct trains from London (3.5 hours), Manchester, Crewe and Cardiff. The ferry service from nearby Holyhead to Ireland is also fast and frequent.

Most of the University buildings and halls of residences are within walking distance of the city centre.
