Congratulations if you have been accepted to study at Bangor University. It’ll be the best three years of your life. If you are thinking about applying to Bangor. Do it, it’ll be one of the highlights of your life.
As a Bangor University student you are automatically a member of Undeb Bangor (the Students’ Union here at Bangor). Undeb means Union in Welsh.
We are the home of Student Opportunities, and through us you can join a Sports Club, Society orVolunteering Project. The best place to see what we have to offer is our Fresher’s Fair (we call this Serendipity!) that is held at PJ Hall on Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st of September. Here you can chat to the Sports Clubs, Societies, Volunteering Projects and Student Officers and staff from the Union. You can also find out when the first taster sessions are and how you can become a member. We are really proud to have won the 2017 What Uni Awards for best Clubs and Societies. The best thing though is that membership of all of our activities is FREE.
We’re also the home of the Student Voice here at Bangor! You can become a Course Rep, a member of the Undeb Bangor Council, or you can share your ideas with us! The Course Rep and Undeb Bangor Council Elections will start during Welcome Week, so be sure to check out the details if student representation and fighting for students’ rights is your thing.
It doesn’t stop there, we have activities running throughout the year and we’ve put together a wall planner so you can check out the year ahead and plan for the best year ever. Check this out here or pick one up at Serendipity
We hope you’re looking forward to joining us and we can’t wait to meet you during Welcome Week! We may catch a glimpse of you as you move into Halls or see you at one of the various events being held across the week. Our Undeb Bangor Heroes, Student Officer and Staff will be out and on hand to help you across the week and SU Heroes will be at hand to answer any questions or point you in the right direction.
Our job is to ensure that you have the best time at Bangor so here’s a flavour of the events organised during Welcome Week to help you get settled:
- Worried that you won’t meet people during Welcome Week (you will!) why not pop along to one of our ‘Conversation Corners’ on moving in weekend.
- Take a ‘Tour of Bangor’ with us so we can show you all the hot spots in this lovely little city.
- Head down to Serendipity (your Freshers’ Fair) on the Wednesday or Thursday.
- End the week with a brand new Bangor event – The Fresher’s Ball!
We’ll be adding new information and events to our website over the next few weeks so keep checking back for information and tickets.
