Located five minutes from the centre of Wrexham, north Wales’ largest town, Wrexham Glyndwr University merges modern facilities with beautiful grade II–listed buildings. The majority of services, including accommodation are centrally based on the Wrexham campus. In addition to the main campus in Wrexham there is a dedicated rural campus in Northop specialising in animal sciences and environmental courses and a specialist opto-electronics research facility in St Asaph.
The university recently launched its £60m Campus 2025 estates project, the university’s strategy to significantly update and modernise its campuses with plans to remodel and redevelop our sites into contemporary and attractive learning environments for the 21st century.
