Chester City Centre


Small but sweet, Chester has a great student community atmosphere, whilst simultaneously boasting loads of things to do. And the smaller, one way streets mean a more peaceful atmosphere, and room to breathe. However, size doesn’t matter for accommodation in Chester; there is plenty of variety, as this Chester Student Housing Guide will show! The city is great for touristy activities, such as cruises on the river, and walking the city walls. And don’t forget the zoo!

What’s more, with great transport links to the rest of the North West, weekends away are easy and cheap. Why not go shopping in Liverpool? Or get a bus up to West Kirby and go to the seaside? Regardless of what you choose to do, Chester is a great place to find a happy home in student accommodation. The Chester Student Housing Guide aims to make the accommodation-finding process as easy and as informed as possible. So let’s get cracking!

Best Student Areas in Chester

Boughton is west of the city centre. Hosting both fitness classes and some great parks, Boughton is not only one of the cheapest student accommodation areas of Chester, but also a great place to get fit in the fresh air.

Hoole is a ten-minute walk from the station, and is host to a range of independent businesses, such as The Sticky Walnut bistro. This, combined with the multiple recreation grounds and parks, makes Hoole a great, community-focused place to live.
