A fantastic, all-rounded university situated in a prime location for aesthetics and outdoor activities. Student support and advice is easy to get through both student service facilities and the Students' Union. This is rounded off by a huge range of free clubs and societies, high quality research facilities and excellent staff.

My time at Bangor university has been fun, interesting and (I’m not gonna lie) stressful. But it has made me tackle assignments in different ways, and made me believe in my work and in myself. I would highly recommend Bangor university if you like an environment where your teachers see you as a person and not just someone in a class.

Bangor uni is fantastic. The facilities are easily accessible to all, the career prospects and guidance is immense as the team are more than willing to help in any way they possibly can. The halls accommodation is a good quality and the sizes are generous. Clubs and societies are free to attend and range far and wide across various disciplines. It’s also really easy to create a new society too. The academic departments are high quality and the staff are so so helpful and lovely.

I love this university, I appreciate the support given rather it be personal or academic related. Just knowing that there are individuals within the university that offer support for anything makes me feel very well assured and not alone. This university provides many opportunities for one to grow, an example would be the volunteering opportunities in which I am involved in many. I have acquired many interpersonal and valuable skills that I feel will make me stand out when putting in applications for a job, project or any work opportunity.

Great coastal location in north wales, between the isle of anglesey and the mountains of snowdonia rising over 1,000m right next. Brutal nature & university. Lecturers are amongst the best in their fields. You have all the facilities you could ever need whatever course you're on. Bangor town is small but has practically everything you could buy and 5 huge supermarkets on a town of under 20,000 habitants of which half are bangor university students! Pretty amazing.

One of the best things about Bangor University is the wide variety of books available in the library as I’ve never struggled to find a relevant book to be able to do my work, also the societies are fantasric as there is everything for everyon, from sports to dog walking to even a tea time society. Also I always know where to find help as I get emailed for careers advice updates and I also know that my lecturers are always happy to help.

As a marine biology student I firmly believe that attending Bangor university is one of the best options you can take to give you the best chance at making a career in the field for yourself. The lab facilities are superb, the teaching is excellent and geographically it is perfectly situated. Salt marshes, Rocky shores, Sandy shores and much more all within half an hour of the campus as well as the Menai straight. The other geography of Bangor that’s great is that virtually any extra curricular activity you want to do, be it climbing in the mountains of snowdonia or surfing the Irish Sea it’s all easy accessible to students.

The university itself has limited social facilities for students but there are multiple pubs and two clubs in the area. However, the university has a good amount of academic resources available.

Bangor university has provided a really safe, helpful environment for me to study. Campus facilities are definitely adequate with 3 seperate libraries and plenty of space to study in quet areas. Theres a new, modern arts centre with lots of food outlets and a modern place to study too. Lecture rooms are sometimes too hot or too cold or theres too many students been paced in them. Uni computers are new and of really good quality, with printing prices reasonable too! As for gym, we have a state of the art gym to support all manner of societies. The careers advice service has been absolutely fantastic with an 'employability award' scheme to show your extra curricular efforts you do whilst studying. I'm proud to say that I'm a student at Bangor University.

The accommodation is trash. Don't think about going into the older buildings because they are so disgusting. They are literally falling apart as we speak. You think the University cares about you? They don't. All they care about is making money. I'm currently being charged £354 for not handing in my key at the end of the year because I lost it, their reasoning for such a cost is because they are charging me £100 for the change of locks (which I understand) and £229.60 for an extra 14 days rent (which I do not understand), even though they closed the entire building and no one was living there and a £25 "admin fee" (what does this even mean?). My friend is being charged £200 because someone had put their own mattress in the kitchen to be binned and because she was the last person there she is getting fined. My boyfriend had to pay £150 in noise complaints even though he didn't do anything. The Uni is failing, they aren't getting enough students and so they fine their current students!

Absolutely awful, the people were nice -- well the ones I met whilst on my course. However, the university it's self was beyond appalling. The student union did nothing. The support I'd asked for during my time was a waste of time as nothing came about it. It's a lovely place, except for some part but thats expected everywhere, there is nothing to really do... Most people in my year that I knew have left and gone somewhere else, and I think I'll cut my loses too. By the way it lies when it says the cheapest accommodation... And it fails at being a "city". Sorry. Not sorry. Abysmal.

As an international student, I'm actually completely appalled by this university. I find the facilities here to be very lack luster and inadequate in almost every aspect. They have a wide range of clubs and societies but the university does a horrible job at managing them and many of the sports teams aren't even worth joining because of absolutely horrible facilities and management. I don't even think this campus has a student union. If so, I know nothing about it. The wifi has been absolute trash since day one. I can't even connect my phone to the wifi for more than 5 minutes, and it is a modern miracle that I was able to connect my laptop long enough to type this review. The IT Service department takes far too long to respond to issues and even longer to fix the issues. In my opinion, the job they have done this semester is completely unacceptable and disgusting by most standards. You couldn't pay me enough money to come back to this university.

Campus is beautiful, commonly know as Hogwarts, main arts is where the 24 hour library is. The main lecture theatres are also there. The sports centre Calnofan Brailsford is a state of the art new facility which is very nice. There are loads of club's and societies which are all free to join, these range from a huge variety of sports club to board games society, zoology society, orchestra and many others. Students union is good, they organise lots of event for students. Careers service is excellent, the uni offers the Bangor Employability Award which looks great on CV's. The internet is usually good but occasionally temperamental in halls.

Bangor University has progressed over my time here, now offering excellent facilities. In particular, an amazing sports complex, which even though brand new, with lots of investment into, is still free for sports clubs to have free sessions in. All clubs and societies are free to join and be a member of, which encourages social interaction and does not limit activities or friendship groups or opportunities for your time in Bangor.

Absolutely brilliant location, there's a big choice of things to do every day even in a small town, the course is great, the facilities are brilliant, and it all feels very cosy and friendly.

I've just finished first year and absolutely love Bangor University. The staff are very helpful, both in my school and around the university in general. My school are very helpful and are one of the best in the country being taught by world class lecturers and taking part in internationally recognised research. The location is amazing, you can climb Snowdon and goto the beach in the same day. Halls are nice, clean, modern, good quality. Wifi is good, sometimes slow but only during the evenings when everyone is using the internet to download/stream music, movies and TV which is understandable.

The staff make the university. They are caring and always reply quickly to emails or meetings. Feedback is vast and help is vast. The course is varied and interesting, with teaching to suit all tastes. I would definitely recommend this university to anyone. I always remember why I chose this university. I was told on an open day that any university can get a first degree out of A grade A level students but it takes something special to get a first degree from B/C A level students. They have lived up to this.

The university is amazing, has reviewed and been nominated for an abundance of reviews for it's quality of teaching, facilities and importantly; student satisfaction! I wasn't sure about living away to study and had just turned 18 so was very unsettled, but this is a very close-knit and homely uni! You are almost forced to make friends as there are so many similar people around the 'city' is dominated by students! There is a huge focus on students, and tuition fees are well spend and put back into things beneficial ti students like free language courses and stable services and new facilities. Don't be out of by it being in Wales, students from other parts of the UK/ world will not feel left out as the culture is so diverse and the Welsh culture isn't dominant there. Hardly anyone speaks the language and everyone is made welcome!

Not a great deal of facilities. The residential campus is nice and clean. The internet spans the whole of the city but is relatively weak and slow at times. The Students Union is unique in that it hardly even exists. The main university staff are good, staff in my particular school are excellent. There is a wide range of clubs and societies, although they are free to join some require payment to participate (Snow sports for example). There is not a lot to do if you are bored and want to do something, the nightclubs are average but there is a wide range of bars, some of which are a little weird but there are a couple of good ones.
