Student life

The city is a melting pot of cultures and the wide choice of cafes, delis, restaurants, take-aways and food makers reflects this - something that gets a big thumbs up according to our students. We're always on hand to help if you need it.

We are passionate in our belief that higher education should be accessible to everyone - no matter their gender identity, sexuality or background. As a university, we have an active LGBT+ society and there are a number of local support and social groups which our students tell us makes them feel free to be themselves. 

On campus, there's our Students’ Union bar and Glyn’s, offering tasty and affordable food options. Venture into the city centre and you'll find it comes alive after dark; from clubs and cocktail bars to traditional pubs, sports bars and live music venues. Wrexham's world-famous football club is located next to our main campus, and its new owners - Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney - have attracted a host of famous fans.

What's it like to live in Wales?
Check out our region guide

With beautiful hills and coastlines to explore by foot, bike, surfboard or zipline, Wales offers a great student experience and a wide range of universities connected to their local communities.

The country has a little of everything – historic cities like Cardiff and Swansea, pretty coastal towns, and three national parks including Snowdonia, home to the highest mountain in Wales. If you love the outdoors, you’ll be right at home.

Wales has a long history of sporting achievement, literature, and history. Perhaps you'll hear some tales over some rarebit – a traditional dish that puts cheese on toast to shame.
