Number 1 Library in Wales!

Results from the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2015 show that our libraries have been rated top in Wales for ‘good library and good library opening hours’.

Our score of 6.5 was also the second highest score across the 113 institutions surveyed, and puts us at equal 5th in the UK.

Bangor University’s Director of Libraries and Archives, Sue Hodges, said "We are delighted by the outcome of this survey. Library and Archives staff have worked incredibly hard to improve services and facilities, and it is rewarding that students have acknowledged how we support teaching, learning and research, and also appreciate our extensive opening hours. We will continue to work closely with students and the Students Union to improve our services and plan for the future.”
