However, city status was officially conferred on it by the Queen in 1974. The city originates from the founding of a monastery on the site of Bangor Cathedral.  University College of North Wales (now Bangor University) was founded in 1884.
In 1967, The Beatles came to Bangor, staying in Dyfrdwy, one of the halls comprising Adeilad Hugh Owen (Hugh Owen Building), now part of the Management Centre, for their first encounter with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
