An on-going multi-million pound investment programme has already resulted in new student residences, a new Students' Union nightclub and academic facilities such as the Management Centre and the Environment Centre Wales building. The next major project is an ambitious new Arts and Innovation Centre, which will provide exciting arts and entertainment facilities for the University and the local community.
The Pontio Centre- which will open in 2014 - will be a world-class centre for innovation in science, technology and the creative arts. In addition to being a new home for our Students' Union, it will include a theatre, studio theatre, cinema, lecture theatres, exhibition spaces, bar and cafe.
Anglesey is one of the most popular destinations in North Wales and because it’s an island there’s the added bonus of never being too far from the sea. There are plenty of beaches to chose from so when the sun is smiling, get your friends together for a spot of sunbathing. Or if you’re the sporty type take your board with you because the island is a popular spot for surfers.
Anglesey is also your gateway to Ireland and regular ferries run from Holyhead to Dublin, with the journey taking around two hours.
The Snowdonia National Park's 25 miles of mountains, lakes and rivers offer plenty of opportunities for you to enjoy the great outdoors.
Walking, climbing, kyaking and canoeing are just some of the sports that can be enjoyed in the park. Many of the University's sports clubs organise regular trips to Snowdonia - you can find out more about the University's Clubs and Societies on the Students' Union's website and Facebook page.
