Another Award for Bangor University’s Student Accommodation

Bangor University’s student accommodation has been awarded ‘Best Student Halls’ by a major source of information for prospective students.

Student Crowd (https://www.studentcrowd.com/) provides a space where students can review their university resources, and where potential students can learn about the universities they’re interested in, from real student feedback.

Bangor University’s accommodation has made it to seventh’ place in a table of the top 20 Universities accommodation providers in the UK, based on 17,929 accommodation reviews on the site from students themselves.

According to data from UCAS, the body which manages university applications, the quality of student accommodation is among the top ten factors  which student consider when accepting a University place, and Bangor’s Halls of residence are among the  ‘best in class’,  providing the accommodation that students need.

Deirdre McIntyre, Head of Residential Life at the University commented:

“We aims to provide our students a home from home experience while living in Halls of Residence with peer support by Mentors to help everyone settle in.  From bills and gym membership, to the extensive “Campus Life” programme of free events and trips; every aspect of communal living is covered – and it’s all included! 

She added:

“To be certain that our students have a voice, student Halls Reps visit flats to find out what really matters to our residents, then we act on feedback. Bangor invests heavily in accommodation refurbishment too, living spaces receive a regular refresh ensuring the student experience is positive from the outset.”
