Bangor is a city in Gwynedd unitary authority, northwest Wales. It is the oldest city in Wales and one of the smallest cities in the United Kingdom. It is one of only six places classed as a city in Wales, although it is only the 25th-largest urban area by population. The origins of the city date back to the founding of a monastic establishment on the site of Bangor Cathedral by the Celtic saint Deiniol in the early 6th century AD. Bangor itself is an old Welsh word for a wattled enclosure, such as the one that originally surrounded the cathedral site. Bangor is home to a small BBC broadcasting centre, producing a large amount of output for BBC Radio Cymru. Bangor has been unique outside of England in using the title of 'city' by ancient prescriptive right.

Bangor University

Bangor University is a Welsh university in the city of Bangor in the county of Gwynedd in North Wales. It received its Royal Charter in 1885 and was one of the founding member institutions of the former federal University of Wales. It was officially known for most of its history as the University College of North Wales (UCNW), and later as the University of Wales, Bangor (UWB). From September 2007 it became known as Bangor University, having become independent from the federal University of Wales. The university occupies a substantial proportion of Bangor and also has part of its School of Healthcare Sciences in Wrexham. The Students Union provides services, support, activities and entertainment for students.
