When you are at Bangor FAQs

When I arrive at Bangor University where should I go?

Accommodation

If you have been given a room on Campus at one of the University’s Halls of Residence, you should report to the Halls Office reception on the Ffriddoedd Campus to collect the keys. This office is open Monday to Friday between 9am and 4pm. After those times, and during the weekends, keys can be collected from the Ffriddoedd Campus Security Office. Please remember to bring your room booking confirmation with you.

Rented Accommodation

For those living off campus in rented accommodation, you must, before you arrive in Bangor, make sure you have arranged at least several nights accommodation either in a hotel, hostel, B&B or University accommodation.  Email studenthousing@bangor.ac.uk to request a list of local hotels and guest houses.

What facilities does Bangor offer for practicing my religion?

Spiritual support is available to students and staff of all faiths and none through the Chaplaincy Team. The Team is made up of ministers from faith groups in and around Bangor who work within the Student Support Network of the University.

The Chaplaincy Team aims to offer a listening ear and to help University members explore faith and spirituality. It can also signpost towards other religious activities in the area. Visit the Faith Provision webpage.
