When do I apply for accommodation?

Once you receive the email, you can apply on-line. You should apply for accommodation as soon as possible. You can look at all of the different halls of residence we have here at Bangor on the accommodation website and can even take virtual tours of some of the halls.

On results day, what do I do?

If you have a conditional offer and have met the conditions of that offer – log on to track to see if we have confirmed your place. Congratulations – you are coming to Bangor.

If I miss the conditions of my offer, what should I do?

Don't Panic! The first thing to do is check your status on UCAS Track to see whether you have been accepted and you can get in touch with the University's Admissions Helpline if you have any questions. If you've been rejected you will automatically be released into Clearing. There will be spaces available at many Universities through Clearing and you can contact them to see if they can offer you a place. Bangor University will publish a list of subjects that have spaces through Clearing on the UCAS website and in some newspapers. To apply for a place through Clearing you need to get in touch with the Admissions Helpline, and you may be made an offer over the phone.
