    Hi,

    I am hoping to study Business Studies at Chester University in September. I understand I will be on the Chester Campus. I am an outgoing person and I want to meet lots of new people, I'm not that bothered as to the accommodation being catered/self-catered/semi-catered, but I would still like an area to cook, make a cup of tea, store snacks etc..

    I would also like to know how I can go about applying for accommodation and if I can ask for it to be en-suite. In a Nut-Shell I know very little of the accommodation process.

    I would be grateful of any help or any information

    The basics can be found in the first post here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=2082530, but basically they won't get in touch with you until around a week after results day if you got your results/recieved and accept an unconditional, and longer if you had to go through Clearing. From what I understand, you get a booklet of different options and you put them in order of preference-however this is no guarentee that you will get what you ask for, and there have if I recall been cases of people getting exactly what they didn't want, but managing to swap with someone else.

    Hi, just to clarify what Lil2Wkd said, all offer holders can apply for accommodation from June (we will contact you to explain how to do this - it's an online form). The decision as to which accommodation you have been allocated is made after results day (once we know who is definitely coming to Chester).

    Hope this helps. Let us know if there's anything else you're not sure about.

    Odd question but do all the rooms (or just self catered) have their own sinks, it would be a real help if I have a shared bathroom?

    Hi, according to the Accommodation Guide most standard rooms have a washbasin in the room. We're asking around the office and can't think which ones don't!

    You could always get in touch with the Accommodation office to check - 01244 513000 or [email protected]

    Hi, whilst we can't guarantee that you'll be offered accommodation living locally, you can still apply when the applications open in June. You may want to have a backup option in case we can't offer you a room on campus.

    If you have any questions, you can contact the Accommodation office on 01244 513001 or visit http://www.chester.ac.uk/accommodation

    Hi, I was offered accommodation by Chester University which was completely different from what I asked for. I asked for Self catered en-suite accommodation but was offered catered. I declined the offer and now I don't know what to do next. Even thinking of pulling out all together and try and get a place through clearing. Once I have declined an accommodation offer could I still get another accommodation offer from Chester Uni?

As for the accommodation offer, have you been in touch with the accommodation office to see what they can do ? I know in the first few weeks some people do switch accommodation but unsure how likely this is. Also it may be worth trying to speak to someone to say that catered is not suitable for you, I know a few people who were vegan or other dietary requirements which meant it was not suitable or they had a job which meant they would never be around for meal times so ended up switching

    Thanks 3498kinvara for reply. Will look around for private accommodation as you suggested. Just disappointed about my first real contact with Chester University. If they get my accommodation request already so wrong. And from forums I know I am not alone. It does make you wonder what else is not working correctly at Chester University.

    Hello,


    Whilst we will try to match students' specific preferences it is not always possible. Many of the options will be oversubscribed so it may be necessary to offer you a type of accommodation that is not your first choice on your list of preferences.

    If you're interested in private sector accommodation, have you looked at the Chester Student Stamp site?

    If you have any questions, you can always speak to our Accommodation Team by phoning 01244 513000.
