The School is set in a region of outstanding natural beauty between the mountains, lakes and forests of the Snowdonia National Park and the dramatic North Wales coastline. The Isle of Anglesey (Ynys Mon) is also on our doorstep.
The School is housed in three adjacent buildings (Brambell, Environment Centre Wales and Memorial) on the main Deiniol Road science site. The Environment Centre for Wales is a partnership between the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology and Bangor University. The centre brings together 60 environmental scientists from the University and the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, whose combined scientific knowledge and experience cuts across traditional academic boundaries. This new way of working will make significant contributions to solutions for environmental problems.
