Wrexham Glyndwr University

Glyndwr University started in 2008 so we’re still one of the youngest universities in the UK. We’re named after a Welsh scholar and hero called Owain Glyndwr and we aim to champion some of the same philosophies as him.We are proud of the opportunities which we provide for those from non-traditional backgrounds to enter higher education. More than half of our students study part-time and we are one of the UK’s leading universities for supporting students from lower socio-economic backgrounds through university thanks to our comprehensive Widening Access programme in the local community.

We’ve been delivering education at our main Wrexham campus since 1887, when we were known as the Wrexham School of Science and Art. We started offering degrees in 1924.


Glyndwr University has four university research centres including staff and students across all of the University’s academic areas.

University Research Centres

  • Applied Science, Engineering and Computing
  • Management
  • Media, Arts and Design
  • Social and Life Sciences


The Careers & Zone at Glyndwr University is home to a wealth of expertise, resources, and opportunities and is designed to provide impartial and professional information, advice and guidance for students and graduates. The Careers & Zone also offers a range of services for employers and academic staff.


Student services

At Glyndwr University we believe that higher education should be available for everyone, and we strive to provide the best possible accessibility for disabled students.Many students arrive knowing that they have individual needs in relation to a disability or to a specific learning difference, such as dyslexia. Others become aware that they have needs which require individual attention after they have arrived.The Disability Team can help with needs arising from a disability or impairment.

Housing services

Glyndwr University provides modern comfortable accommodation in a beautiful setting and is suited to quiet studying away from a town centre location and is ideally located for students based on the Northop campus.

Student Village, our on-campus residences at Plas Coch Campus, is a perfect blend of quality and affordability which has made it our most popular accommodation.

Student Life

Campus life

We started life as a university (back in 2008) with just one campus. Since then, we’ve grown rapidly and now have a major presence in four locations. Three of these are in North Wales - Wrexham, Northop and St Asaph.

Sports facilities

Our sports hall complies with national competition standards for badminton, netball, basketball, volleyball, futsal and handball.
