Student Life

  • In Wrexham, students will discover a hidden gem that's more than just a market town on the border between Wales and England; it is gateway to a region named by the prestigious travel organisation Lonely Planet as one of the best to visit in the entire world (2017).
  • From the Clwydian Range, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, to the Vale of Llangollen, home of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), the university is close to some of the best outdoor sites in the country.

Nightlife and Culture

  • A bustling town by day, Wrexham comes alive at night, with loads of great options for drinking, dancing and socialising. Take a walk through Wrexham town centre and check out the bars and pubs, dance and sing the night away at nightclubs like ATIK, Central Station and South, or take in a gig or comedy show at the university's own William Aston Hall, which regularly hosts live music.
  • Students looking for something a little bit different could step aboard the Llangollen Railway for events like steampunk festivals, murder mysteries and Oktoberfest, held on the line's historic steam trains.
  • The area's rich history can be discovered at the Wrexham Museum, or at locations like Erddig Hall or Chirk Castle, while art exhibitions can be viewed at Undegun or Ty Pawb in Wrexham Town Centre.
  • There's also the contemporary shopping centre, Eagles Meadow, alongside the shops and restaurants in the bustling town centre.
  • Wrexham Football Club's home ground, the Racecourse Stadium, is next door to the university's main campus and is the oldest international football stadium in the world.
