The University is very old & beautiful. We sat through the opening speech then followed the student to the appropriate room for another talk.

I was pleasantly surprised by the standard of the rooms I was given while stating there on two separate occasions. Rooms were spotlessly clean with en-suite. A comfortable single bed.

Like so many of us, we need to prepare ourselves for our children's lives away from home. We put Bangor Uni on our list of 4 to visit because of the excellent reputation of the Psychology dept. On the day we met Professors, students, helpers, lecturers. Nothing was too much and the Uni itself was truly superb. Great facilities, terrific... More

I studied music at Bangor University and I thoroughly enjoy going back year after year to have a walk around. The people in Bangor are always really friendly and the views from the university balcony are stunning!

Don't put this place on your must visit list, but if you're studying here I'm sure you'll be happy. If you're visiting family studying here, I'd suggest staying at Plas Trevor B&B as it's just a short walk and very nice.
