Guaranteed accommodation in modern Halls of Residence
We guarantee a room in our student Halls of Residences to all first-year undergraduates who apply before the given deadline. We have around 3,000 rooms available, most of which are en-suite. We have expanded the number of halls places over the last few years enabling an increasing number of 2nd and 3rd years and Postgraduate students to live in Halls as well.
The location, the scenery and the surrounding area are also amongst the reasons why students choose to come to Bangor. All this on your doorstep adds a different dimension to student life, with plenty of places to visit in Snowdonia and the Isle of Anglesey, as well as easy access to cities such as Liverpool, Manchester and Dublin for shopping trips or days out.
