Student Life in North Wales

Your student life will be key part of your university experience and something you will always remember. Your time at university will bring many opportunities to make new friends – not just on your course but at your student accommodation, at the students’ union and through the clubs and societies you join.

If you have a sporting interest or just want to maintain a healthy lifestyle during your studies Wrexham Glyndŵr University has a wealth of sporting facilities both on-campus and nearby.
