Entertainment on campus
Wrexham Glyndwr University is always buzzing with activities and events – so you won’t be short of things to do while studying here.
As well as the entertainment and facilities provided by the Students’ Union and student bar, which cover everything from pool tables through to themed nights out, there are also a number of entertainment venues on campus.
“There is always a lot going on with fun events regularly being held across the campus.” Jacob, Psychology student
From big name performances on campus such as comedians Jimmy Carr, Russell Kane and Romesh Ranganathan and gigs and concerts by a diverse range of artists from modern through to classical – there is always something to look forward to. Wrexham Glyndwr University also attracts annual festivals to its campus such as the North Wales Comic Con.
If playing sport or keeping healthy is an interest of yours our on campus Sports Centre offers a range of facilities including a fitness suite, dance studio and a six badminton sized sports hall. We also have the North Wales regional Hockey Stadium and an astroturf pitch on site.
Our Students’ Union has strong links with community sport clubs in the region and Team Glyndwr participate in the British Universities and Colleges Sports (BUCS) league and cup competitions in everything from athletics and football through to rugby and volleyball.
As well as providing events across the year our Students’ Union organises clubs and societies to suit all interests and if there isn’t one aimed at your interest – you can put forward your own.
Our on campus William Aston Hall is a 900 seat venue and is Wrexham’s leading concert hall. In addition we have a dedicated conference and performing arts venue, the Catrin Finch Centre, which hosts conferences and exhibitions throughout the year as well as public performances of everything from orchestras and comedy though to live theatre and pop concerts.
There is also the opportunity to view work of your fellow students from art work on display at our Regent Street campus through to performances by our theatre students in the Terry Hands Studio.
We are also pleased to offer our on campus art gallery, the Sycharth Gallery which has regular exhibitions of national and international artists’ work.
