Our name comes from Welsh scholar and hero Owain Glyndŵr and we aim to champion some of the same philosophies as him. His spirit lies at the heart of Wrexham Glyndŵr University where we set out to be bold, enterprising and open to all in everything that we do. We’ve been delivering education at our main Wrexham campus since 1887, when we were known as the Wrexham School of Science and Art. We first started offering degrees in 1924 but we've come a long way since then. We became Denbighsire Technical Institute in 1927, moving to Regent Street, now home to our creative arts courses. As the Institute and demand for courses grew, the development of what is now our main Plas Coch campus began and the Denbighshire Technical College was born in 1939. Sir Patrick Abercromby, the famous Liverpool-Dublin architect, was responsible for the internal design of the College, which featured in a number of Architecture magazines in the early 1950s. Peggy Angus was commissioned to design suitable tiles for the main foyer. These were unique to the College and represent a flow of learning with a Welsh background. These tiles are still in place today and are protected as a Grade II listing. it soon became necessary to merge the three main colleges of the County of Clwyd: Denbighshire Technical College, Cartrefle Teacher Training College (situated at the other end of Wrexham) and Kelsterton College in Connah's Quay near Chester. The resulting North East Wales Institute of Higher Education (NEWI) became one of the largest colleges of its kind in Britain with over 9,000 students and an annual budget in 1975 of £5 million. The College grew both in the number of students and in reputation as its expertise became sought after throughout the world. In 2008, NEWI gained university status and Glyndwr University was born.The university's origins date back to the opening of Wrexham School of Science and Art (WSSA) in 1887. At this time Viriamu Jones called for a University of Wales. The WSSA began offering University of London-validated degrees in science in 1924. The original name of Wrexham School of Science and Art was changed several times. In 1927, it became Denbighshire Technical Institute, becoming Denbighshire Technical College in 1939 and North East Wales Institute of Higher Education in 1975 by the merger of Denbighshire Technical College, Cartrefle Teacher Training College and Kelsterton College of Connah's Quay, Deeside. Initially, its degrees were validated by the University of Salford. Some famous alumni include William Roberts, Srinjoy Guha and Rupert Humphrey among others. In 1993, NEWI became an associate member of the University of Wales and all further education courses in Wrexham were moved to Yale College, Wrexham (now part of Coleg Cambria). In 2004, NEWI became a full member of the University of Wales and in 2006 became accredited by the University of Wales and exercised devolved powers to validate and deliver its own degrees. The university was officially renamed "Glyndŵr University" in July 2008 after being granted degree awarding powers. The name was chosen in favour of other suggestions such as "University of Wrexham", "University of Wales, Wrexham", and "North East Wales University (NEWU)" amongst others. The university was visited by the Queen in 2003 and by HRH the Duchess of Gloucester in 2005.As we look further ahead to our future as a university, Campus 2025 is Wrexham Glyndwr University’s £60m strategy to enhance all of our campuses to ensure our students have the best facilities and learning environment. We’ve already completed two modern and welcoming social learning spaces: The Study and The Gallery. Our Student Centred Active Learning Environment (SCALE-UP) room and the £5m Colliers Park National Football Development Centre. The longer-term plans include creating a gateway building at the heart of the Plas Coch campus which will become the main entrance to the university and also house the new student union. Our Regent Street campus will undergo a careful refurbishment programme and improvements to our Northop campus include the refurbishment of the sports hall to provide a brand new teaching and observation space for our veterinary nursing course. Our ambition is to be the learning gateway into Wrexham – Wrexham Glyndwr University is one of the first places visitors to Wrexham see and our ambitions are in alignment with the overall vision to transform Wrexham. Campus 2025 will result in a better academic delivery, a sustained and increased student population and will benefit the wider community.Our inspirationOur name comes from Welsh scholar and hero Owain Glyndŵr and we aim to champion some of the same philosophies as him.
