A welcome from the Students' Union
Undeb Bangor, Your Students’ Union
We are Undeb Bangor. We are Bangor University’s students’ union. ‘Undeb’ means union in Welsh; we call ourselves Undeb Bangor as we are very proud of our welsh roots.
This will be a year like no other, and we’re sure you’re feeling both anxious and excited about what’s in store. Starting at Bangor University is life-changing, and this year will be no different.
The welcome period is about bringing people together, fostering friendships, introducing you to all the wonderful things Bangor has to offer and helping you settle in. All of this is possible in a safe and responsible way.
Our events during the welcome period are focused on getting you settled and ensuring you are able to meet people and understand how you can get involved with Undeb Bangor during your time here. We are the home of Bangor students and we work to amplify your voice, set up opportunities and develop your community. A team of Sabbatical Officers leads Undeb Bangor; this year’s team were elected in March 2021 and started their term in July 2021:
President - James Avison
VP for Education - Harrison Fleming
UMCB President - Mabon Dafydd
VP for Sport - Tabitha Bowden
VP for Societies and Volunteering - Katie Tew
The Sabbatical Officer team are elected by students, in a cross-campus ballot, to ensure that students are represented in every aspect of University life, including academia, and to ensure you can take part in sports, societies and volunteering. Over their year in office, the officer team are dedicated to the education, well-being, and opportunities of all students at Bangor.
As the home of Bangor students, we run the Sports Clubs, Societies, Volunteering Projects, UMCB (Welsh Union), Undeb Bangor Course Reps and Student Council. Joining a society, volunteering project or sports club is a great opportunity to find a new hobby and to meet likeminded individuals. It is also a great way to have a break from your University work and to ensure a good balance, which can help reduce stress.
