Living in Bangor as a student

The small but lively town of Bangor is home to Bangor University – which was recently voted a top ten university for student satisfaction (2019). The oldest city in Wales is certainly a popular choice for many students to call home, due in no small part to its beautiful surroundings and welcoming residents.

Lying next to the Menai Straits at the foot of the Snowdonia National Park, Bangor has more than enough attractions to keep you entertained when you are not at Uni. From Penrhyn Castle to the iconic Pontio centre – there is even a Pier where you can find some of the best tea and scones in the area. You won’t be bored.

Bangor University itself works hard to make sure you have plenty to keep you occupied as well, with their Students Union clubs and societies being named the best in the UK recently. There are over 200 clubs to choose from at Bangor Uni, from traditional sports such as football and netball to more unusual activities such as quidditch and canoe-polo.

You may be wondering ‘what’s Bangor like for nightlife?’ Well, you have probably realised by now that you won’t get the same level of nightlife that you would in a big city, but that doesn’t mean you should write it off. There are a good number of local pubs and a couple of clubs as well-meaning you can still do the traditional student pub crawl whenever you feel like it.

Really, the main attraction of Bangor for many people is the fact it is set in beautiful surroundings, with lots of ways to enjoy it. From white water rafting to surfing, and even climbing – you won’t be short of ways to enjoy the great outdoors.
