The improvements form part of the University’s Campus 2025 project, which will feature new student accommodation, car parking, upgraded academic and research rooms and transfiguration of buildings, including the main entrance.

The new catering facilities were overhauled by food services company Aramark and include outlets providing global brands Costa Coffee, Starbucks and Grumpy Mule, a food court, refurbished coffee bars and an overhaul of the cafeteria at the School of Creative Arts on Regent Street. 

The £33,000 plot was funded by numerous organisations and built by volunteers over 400 hours. It features a plastic bottle greenhouse, raised planting areas and a pond.

The full Campus 2025 modernisation programme is being overseen by educational design specialists, DAY Architectural.

Lynda Powell, Director of Operations at Wrexham Glyndwr University, said: “The improvements to our catering provision are just the first step, it’s definitely a case of ‘watch this space’ as there is much more to come as we further develop the campus here in Wrexham.”
