Best blend of modern and heritage meeting and events space in the cathedral city of Bangor.
Located between the mountains and the sea on the picturesque North Wales coast, Bangor University is a leading campus destination nestled between the Menai Straits and mountains of Eryri (Snowdonia). Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful university settings in the UK – as goes the proud boast – this is a meeting and events destination simply steeped in history. 

Multi-million-pound development including meeting and events facilities, cinema space and purpose-built theatre.
The purpose built and ultra-modern ‘Pontio’, home to the university's new arts and innovation centre, sits comfortably alongside the many notable historic buildings on campus. Business event facilities combine contemporary lecture theatres and historic banqueting halls ensuring the destination delivers a unique experience for each attendee. 

For meetings and events with a requirement for varied meeting spaces and off-site social programme options.
Local saying “From town to gown” reflects the close ties between the city of Bangor and the university. Links between the two mean that meetings and events attendees will enjoy a warm welcome from both. Most attendees choose to make the most of the natural surroundings and extend their stay. 

Sustainability focus.
With an exacting focus on sustainability, Bangor University will work hard to help you to offset the carbon footprint of your meeting. The experienced in-house team will work with you to design and deliver a meeting that makes best use of your time on and off campus.

Create a campus-style meeting or event without the extra cost.
A range of spaces with capacities of up to 450 of varying styles. Year-round accommodation available across campus, increasing during the summer months. Venue spaces on campus can be configured to ensure that longer meeting and events programmes feel varied and the campus look-and-feel is extended to your event. 

Bangor University established The Sustainability Lab which leads on all aspects of sustainability across the campus. ISO14001 accredited for environmental management and in the top 3 per cent of the world’s greenest universities, the university is committed to achieving the goal of being known globally as The Sustainable University.
