Student Accommodation in Chester

Written by Sam | February 10, 2021

Chester only has one university and that is University of Chester. Chester is an old insitution that has been around for many years and has around 11,000 students. This is quite a good size for a university.

10% of those students in 2020 were international students, after getting university status in 2005 it has come a long way and continues to grow.

In addition to the Parkgate Road Campus, there are four other campuses in Chester. These include Thornton Science Park. The university also has facilities in Warrington, Shrewsbury and Reaseheath.

If you are unsure where Chester is, it is close to the Welsh and English boarder and is under Ellesmere port and close to Liverpool.
