Arriving at university for the first time can be very overwhelming, but don't worry as there will be plenty of help during Welcome Week to help you get settled in and find your feet. You'll soon get your bearings and discover where everything you need is located both online and offline.
We've posted a few tips below to help you get to know your way around campus and beyond.
You can download a copy of our campus map so you know where you are heading when you arrive.
If you are studying at our Arts School in Regent Street - this is just a short walk away (approx. 10 mins) from the main Wrexham campus)
Freshers' Welcome Address
During Welcome Week, all new students are invited to hear a special online welcome address from the Vice-Chancellor, Deputy Vice Chancellor, Student Union President and Deans of Faculty within Wrexham Glyndŵr University. This will be a great chance to hear the latest news and developments from the University and the Students' Union, as well as help you look forward to the opportunities that the years ahead will bring.
More information about the Welcome Address will be posted here closer to the time.
The University offers transport between the Wrexham and Northop campuses. 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.
The library is based in the Edward Llwyd building and combines our physical book stock with a variety of study spaces, as well as printing and copying facilities.
Things are a little different at the moment. We have implemented social distancing measures throughout the building. Returned books are quarantined for 1 day.
In addition, we are offering Scan and Send services so that students can access books and materials. In addition, you will be able to access many eBooks and eJournals.
