Directions to Bangor:
From the A55, follow signs to Bangor; take the exit marked for the University. Stay on the main road (A5) for about 2 miles. As you come into Bangor the harbour will be on your right. The road bends left away from the harbour and becomes Deiniol road. Take Deiniol road until it meets a Tjunction at the train station, and turn RIGHT onto HOLYHEAD ROAD. Then follow the directions below to the building (see “Coming from HOLYHEAD ROAD”).

Directions to the Psychology department & Parking:
There are many psychology buildings on campus; you want to go to THE BRIGANTIA BUILDING, which is a large, recently built building located on PENRALLT ROAD, just off of COLLEGE ROAD. One end of College Road ends at a T-junction with HOLYHEAD ROAD. The other end of College Road merges into UPPER GARTH ROAD.

To get to the Brigantia building:
Coming from HOLYHEAD ROAD:
Holyhead road is one of the main roads in Bangor; it runs past the train station. Coming from the train station, you will pass a Safeway's on your right, pass this and carry on through the roundabout. Shortly after is a traffic signal at the intersection where College Road meets Holyhead. Turn right at the signal onto College road. College Road is a one way street at this point. Penrallt Road intersects a few blocks down, just at the point where College Road becomes a two way street (there is no visible street sign marking Penrallt). Turn right onto Penrallt Road. At this point the large, stone, Main Arts building will be on your left, and the large, modern Brigantia building will be on your right. There is a small car park further up on the left in which you may park (see reception). If the lot is full (or blocked off), then just park temporarily at the front doors of the Brigantia Building, and go to the reception desk; they will give you further instructions.

Coming from UPPER GARTH ROAD (near the Pier or coming up “Love Lane”) : If you are coming from the area around the Bangor pier, take this route. Upper Garth Road meets Garth Road near the pier, between the Tap & Spile pub and the Eryl Mor Hotel. Just get on Upper Garth Road (go between the pub and hotel) and follow until it merges into College Road (this happens when you stay to the left at the “BBC Wales” building – see map on next page). Continue up College until you run into the no-entry sign (where College Road becomes one-way against you). Turn left onto Penrallt Road Follow parking instructions in the previous paragraph.
