Freshers' Welcome Address
During Welcome Week, all new students will be invited to hear a special welcome address from the Vice-Chancellor of Wrexham Glyndwr University.
This will be a great chance to hear the latest news and developments from the University and the Students' Union as well as looking forward to the opportunities that the years ahead will bring.
The university offers transport between the Wrexham and the Northop campus. If transport is required you may be able to get a free shuttle bus depending on the date and time. Your programme leaders should be able to give you more information on this.
Car parking is available for students at both our Wrexham and Northop campuses.
Food and drink
Although our university halls all have cooking facilities, the University provides a range of food and drink options on campus for students to eat, drink, relax and socialise.
Alongside our own 'essentials' shop on campus, we are situated right next to the Plas Coch Retail Park where you'll find Sainsbury's and Aldi as well as other useful retailers.
There is also a cashpoint situated at Sainsbury's as well the Shell Petrol station, just across the road from the main university entrance.
As well as the various food outlets, you willl also find an Art Shop at Regent Street and a Print and Book Shop in our Students' Union building. The SU building is also host to an Amazon locker too so you can order things safely and securely online, without worrying about having to be at home to pick up.
Wrexham Town Centre, including the popular Eagles Meadow Shopping and Leisure park are just a short walk away from the main campus where you will find a wide range of high street retailers, restaurants and entertainment facilities.
