    I've not been into Chester properly, just a few brief visits. I'm commuting to Thornton until I can find my own place.

    What's the nearest accommodation to Thorton? I'm guessing Ellesmere port?

    Elton is the nearest village, but not many places to stay.Ellesmere port is close enough to travel from.
    Staying in Chester is an option too as there will be a free bus from main campus to Thornton, I'm not sure on the times they run at though.

    Where are you guys staying? I usually recommend for first years to stay somewhere near other students, as being at uni can be lonely sometimes, so you want to be somewhere close to other people in the same position as you. And of course people you can make friends with easily to spend your free time with

    If you have applied for University accommodation, Thornton students will be allocated accommodation that is based in Chester. You will receive more information about accommodation allocations after A Level results on Thursday.

    The University will provide transport between Chester and Thornton Science Park. Hope that helps

    Hi all

    I will be starting natural sciences as an undergraduate this September.

    A friend of mine is starting chemical engineering too.

    We're both mature students just finished an access course.
