University of Chester STUDENT LIFE ??Watch
The university is small but growing. Which means you are a name and a face, not just a number.
Campus is amazingly friendly, you will get to know a lot of people in no time. The lecturers and facilities vary with whatever course you choose to do but have a reputation for being great!
Besides that, the nightlife is class and is only getting better. Naturally our Student's Union Bar "CH1" is the starting point for most nights out with cheap drinks and staff that you will probably see out later... We have good clubs and the student nights that they put on are insane, week in week out. You will not be bored, you will not be disappointed.
As for accommodation, as a first year student you are more than likely to get a place in university halls. They are conveniently placed on campus, in town or somewhere in between. If not your cup of tea, the private sector knows what we students want and we have domination over the space between uni campus and the city centre, Studentville.
Either way, the campus is only a short walk from town and you will never be far away from your mates.
Racist? Not in the slightest. It's Chester!! Being a nice, normal person is a pre-requisite to entering the city!!
In all seriousness, it has not to my knowledge been an issue in Chester. Chester is a diverse and accepting place that welcomes anyone who wishes to call it their home.
If you would like confirmation on this then our Student's Union team are there to help!
They really are incredible, down to earth people with your best interests at heart. They will help you in anyway they can which is basically in everyway.
I would advise coming to see the uni on an Open day or an Applicant day.
Check the websites for more information!
Hope this helps.
The city is great with loads of different shops and the nightlife is great. It might not have a billion nightclubs but the ones we do have (as well as pubs to start off in) such as Rosie's, Off The Wall, Cruise and The Compass are great for socials and get togethers.
I haven't seen any racism going on and if there ever was, the university would sort it out immediately.
The accommodation is varied, but still good, there is a new block (Grosvenor House) that has just been built on Campus which are studio flats, with others on site too (Catherine House, Fisher and Astbury House) which are all mixed accommodation but the rooms are good. A lot of people also live off site in uni accommodation (I live in Powys Court, it's pretty good), and there are others too.
Hope this helps!
