Equipment and offices

CAZS occupies part of the Thoday Building of the University, where the administration and most staff offices are situated – the rest of the building is used by the School of Agricultural and Forest Sciences. The academic staff occupy 10 rooms in this building, together with 3 administrative offices with the usual equipment and a seminar room. In addition, there are crop physiology and molecular biology laboratories in the nearby Memorial Building, as well as 2 additional offices for the academic staff. All staff have their own networked computer facilities, and in-house network black and white and high-quality printers are available.

The University Science Library is situated over the road from CAZS, and has comprehensive collections of books and journals. Library catalogues and a wide range of bibliographic sources, including on-line journals, can be accessed over the University network.

Facilities available in the Thoday building also include a student computer room with colour and black and white printers and networked PCs, and a recently installed Video-conferencing suite with state of the art equipment to enable lectures and seminars to be conducted with similar facilities anywhere in the world.

In addition, CAZS manages the Pen-y-Ffridd experimental glasshouse complex 1.5 km away, with temperature and light-controlled glasshouses and controlled environment facilities. There are also smaller-scale glasshouse facilities on the roof of the Memorial building. Staff and students also have access to the SAFS experimental facilities at Abergwyngregyn, about 10 km from Bangor. These include further greenhouse and controlled-environment space, and experimental fields and forestry areas. Adjacent is the CEH dome facility for studies into climate change and atmospheric pollution, to which access can also be arranged.
Other relevant resources

Through their links built up over many years CAZS have gained a great deal of experience in dealing with the needs and expectations of overseas students and visiting staff. Many support facilities for overseas students are also available, both in the University and in the city of Bangor. These include:



  • Representation, personal support and advice on a variety of problems is available through the Students' Union Welfare Advice Centre. A free and confidential counselling service on an appointment or 'walk in' basis is provided through the Student Services Centre and the Students' Union. Students also have a personal tutor and each hall of residence has a resident Warden. For major problems of a personal nature, a confidential Nightline support service run by students for students is also provided. A team of staff volunteers are available to deal with any crises or serious incidents involving students outside normal university hours. Health care is provided via daily surgeries where no appointment is required (although students are also required to register with a local General Practitioner). The Nurse will also see patients on a 'drop in' basis and can make visits to students in their accommodation when necessary.

  • Overseas students have a dedicated advisor who can help with issues such as liaising with university departments and or public and local organisations, In addition, the Shekina Multicultural Women’s' Group offers opportunities for women from different cultures to meet and make friends with local women and to take an active part in the local community through education. Shekina offers a range of free language classes and skills training, including accredited IT, desk top publishing and internet courses.

  • A crèche is provided by the Students' Union for children aged 3 months to 5 years, and a there is a play-scheme for school-age children in the summer.

  • University Chaplains provide support for all students, regardless of their religious beliefs. They are based in an Ecumenical Centre which is open as a meeting place. There is also a mosque in the city of Bangor.
