Northop campus

At Wrexham Glyndwr Northop Campus, we know what it takes to enhance our students' education.  Our unique approach to learning, top quality facilities and community vibe, makes us more than just a campus - it's a life experience.

The enriched learning environment at the Northop Campus has helped countless students get ahead.  Situated in the rural village of Northop, the campus reflects the backgrounds and cultures of the areas, specialising in the teaching of Equine Science, Animal Studies and Wildlife and Plant Biology.  

Northop plays host to around 100 students per year, creating a community where everyone grows together and learning is provided in a much more interactive and intimate way. 

In addition to lecture and teaching rooms, the campus boasts environmental and science laboratories, an organic farm production unit, ancient woodland and conservation area, and formal and informal gardens.

The site is also home to the land-based campus of our collaborative partner Coleg Cambria, with our students able to take advantage of state-of-the art facilities such as their Small Animals Care Centre, which houses a number of small animals, and incorporates different habitats for animals ranging from marmoset monkeys and rabbits to snakes and fish, and the British Horse Society (BHS) Approved Equine Unit, which includes an indoor arena with viewing gallery, a floodlit outdoor arena, stabling, paddocks and two cross-country courses. There are also facilities for hacking in the grounds.

We also have student accommodation, Corbishley Hall, based at Northop, offering a convenient place to live while studying here, in addition to a sports hall, IT facilities, student dining area and cafe.
