University of Chester – Parkgate, Chester

Chester is a new university (2005) but it has a history dating back to 1839. The eclectic mix of modern and historical buildings combine to create an attractive campus, set in a city that was founded as a Roman fort 2000 years ago with the name Deva Vitrix. It is now becoming a must see European destination.

The campus itself is just a short walk away from the vibrant city centre with its mix of cafes, shops and ancient walls, rows, amphitheatre, historic architecture and archaeological features.

The Parkgate campus of the University of Chester is set amongst beautifully kept gardens providing an abundance of green space for students whilst situated only a short walk to the centre of the historic and lively city of Chester.

Homestay & residential accommodation is available at this centre. Our homestay accommodation is provided through an independent local organisation.
