On campus

There is a range of catering outlets across the Wrexham campus where students can eat, drink, relax and socialise in an environment that is as stylish and modern as can be found on the high street. There are also a number of vending machines located across the campus providing quick refreshments.

The Plas Coch site hosts Scholar’s Rest, our main dining area, which offers everything from sandwiches and salads to breakfasts and complete evening meals. Special dietary requirements are catered for including halal, vegetarian and gluten free meals, and themed meals and barbecues take place at regular intervals.

Other outlets at Plas Coch include:-

  • Fellows Café Bar (a high street style coffee bar)
  • Chapters Retail & Café Bar (an ‘essentials’ shop)
  • Café Direct Vending Cartz (a self service facility in the library)
  • Café Darganfod in the Crispin Lane Building near Techniquest Glyndŵr
  • Also on site is Restaurant 1887, a great venue for a special meal out – reservations are required for the restaurant.
  • On the Regent Street site, the North Wales School of Art & Design is served by Inspirations Café

Wrexham Glyndŵr University has excellent computer facilities located close to where you need them within your subject or in the library and open access areas. A recent investment has expanded our WiFi wireless access across the whole campus.

All our computers have full internet access. We will provide you with a wide range of other IT facilities such as your own email account, file storage, standard and specialist applications and printing facilities.

We have 13 computer suites throughout the University. Most of these are for general open access use, although there are also a number of specialist IT labs for certain areas such as Computing, Engineering, and Art and Design.

Wrexham Glyndŵr University uses the latest technology to the full. We have a comprehensive student intranet containing a range of advice and guidance. Many of our courses' lecture notes and programme content are available online through our Virtual Learning Environment. Many study materials such as online databases, e-journals and library catalogue information are available online from our campus computers. They can also be accessed at home should you prefer to study there.

IT Services provides convenient and effective help and advice on all aspects of computing including hardware, software and network access and use. You can also report faults with computing equipment connected to the University network. The IT Helpdesk in the library building (Edward Llwyd Centre) is the first point of call for all IT queries.

For more information about IT facilities and support, contact the IT helpdesk on 01978 293241 in the first instance.


During your time as a student at Wrexham Glyndŵr University you may encounter many issues that make you think more deeply about some of life’s big questions (e.g. What should I do with my life? Why do people suffer? Does it matter if I believe in God? Why can’t people get on with each other?).

The chaplaincy is here to help you think about these issues and to generally promote interest in the more spiritual side of life. In addition, a higher education chaplain (like a hospital chaplain) is there to offer the opportunity for support in any difficult times that arise for you during your time here.

The Chaplaincy

At present we have a team of voluntary chaplains that are available to staff and students to explore life and living. You can talk to a chaplain about anything at all. There is not even a need for the chaplain to know whether you are coming to discuss a relationship problem, the weekend hockey results or last Sunday’s Songs of Praise. It is best to make an appointment though and you can do this by emailing chaplains@glyndwr.ac.uk.

Faith Advisors

Faith advisors are contact persons for your faith group, and they can talk to you about issues related to your particular faith, when the Chaplain is unable to help. Currently we have faith advisors for many of the Christian denominations and for Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists. We continue to make contact with representatives of other belief systems in order to add more advisors to this list.

Quiet Space

The chaplaincy has a Quiet Space, situated in the Students' Union Building where you can pray, meditate or reflect or just have a few minutes’ peace. The space is open for all to use. There is also a Quiet Room on our London Campus. At other campuses, please ask at reception if you need a quiet space and they will help you find a suitable room.


The chaplaincy organises worship on campus, Bible Studies, and other events including a peace and justice group. You can find out more on the university facebook pages and the chaplaincy moodle page. The chaplaincy also has links to local places of worship. As there is no chapel on campus arrangements cannot easily be made for baptisms and weddings. If you want help in sorting out weddings, baptisms, confirmations etc. with local churches, the chaplaincy can put you in touch with the relevant people.

If you would like more information please contact us by emailing chaplains@glyndwr.ac.uk or visit our office in the Students' Union building.
