The University of Wales, Bangor (UWB)—formerly the University College of North Wales (UCNW)—is a constituent institution of the University of Wales based in the small city of Bangor in the county of Gwynedd in North Wales, United Kingdom.
The university was founded as the University College of North Wales on October 18, 1884 as the result of a campaign for better HE provision in Wales, and was incorporated by charter a year later, in 1885.
The university was originally based in an old coaching inn called the Penrhyn Arms (which housed its 58 students and 10 teaching staff), but in 1911 it moved to a much larger new building which is now the old part of the Main Arts Building (M) (see image below).
Dr. Samuel L. Braunstein , a well-known quantum physicist, worked there, researching subjects such as quantum computation and quantum teleportation, from 1997 until he moved to York University in the summer of 2004.
Magazine: Die Promethean
Die Promethean was "a pompous, pretentious piece of waffle." An alternative student magazine from University of Wales, Bangor, from the early nineties. Plucked from the dark smoke of the Promethean secret society like a liver.
It is now being archived on the internet in an ongoing project.
