Bangor Normal College was founded in 1858 as an independent teacher training college for young men based on a series of ‘Normal Colleges’ established across Europe.  

The purpose of these colleges were to establish a standard for education and of prospective teachers.  The term ‘Normal’ derives from the notion of conforming to a standard.

The College developed in response to a shortage of trained teachers in Wales. It was created through the efforts of Sir Hugh Owen and Rev. John Phillips who managed to raise funds of £11,500 through public subscription and £2,000 of Government money.

Teaching began on temporary premises in 1858 and the College opened on its permanent site in the building currently known as Hen Goleg in upper Bangor in 1862.   The college predates Bangor University, where the Main Arts university building now stands; College Road being named after the Normal College.

After the First World War, the College expanded by purchasing new land that included the former George Hotel on the banks of the Menai Strait to cater for an increase in student admissions.  This was to be the George Site, later the Menai Site, presently, the Normal Site.

During the mid1970s it was decided that most of the teaching be relocated to the Menai Site with new facilities being built including this Library building.

In 1996 the College integrated with the University College of North Wales later to become Bangor University with the Normal Site now becoming home to the School of Education and the George Building home to the School of Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences.
