Introducing our Accommodation Office...

If you've recently received an offer from Chester... congratulations! It might be that you are now starting to think about where you’re going to live. September might seem like a long way off but, in terms of your living arrangements, it's important that you spend some time thinking about what’s important to you and researching the various options available at Chester. But don't worry, help is at hand...


A helping hand


As a former undergraduate student of the University, I know exactly how you might be feeling. Excited? Nervous? If coming to Chester means you'll be moving away from home for the first time, there's a good chance you'll be feeling both these things. But please don't panic.

I moved to study here at Chester in 2008. I didn’t know anybody and had never lived away from home. It was scary at first but I soon made friends and now live in Chester permanently – it’s a beautiful city with lots to offer. The unique thing about the University of Chester is that there’s a real sense of community on and off campus; one of the many reasons why I decided to move into student accommodation.

If you’ve decided to spread your wings and move away from home, fear not, we’re here to help! The Accommodation Office is committed to helping you apply for accommodation and making sure you feel right at home. If this blog has got you thinking about what it's really like to live in student accommodation, and the various factors you might like to consider, our new accommodation video might be a good starting point.

Visit Us


But, of course, there is no better way of finding out more about our student accommodation than by visiting us and seeing it for yourself. If you haven't already booked onto one of our Applicant Days, don't miss the opportunity to visit us and view a few examples of the accommodation available at Chester. Trying to decide what type of accommodation you'd like to live in can be tricky, but a visit on one of our Applicant Days really can help give you a better idea of what it is really like to be a student at Chester.

In the meantime, if you have any fears or uncertainties about applying or living in Chester or Warrington, just let me or my team know.  We're on hand to help you with any queries or worries you may have. Contact us at accommodation@chester.ac.uk or call us on 01244 513000.  And if you're wondering about the process for applying, look out for my next blog.

Hope to see you at an Applicant Day soon,

Sophie
