Tramways is an ideal student accommodation with shops and the train station within walking distance. The staff on site are accommodating and friendly and always assist with any problems. The room itself is good value for money with lots of storage and the communal areas are always clean. I have had an amazing student experience here, and I would highly recommend Tramways to all students in all years!

Hi, Unfortunately we only offer dual occupancy in our studios. However, we can definitely allocate two rooms in the same flat for you and your friend to live together! Just let us know :)
Q
Can you have a flat with your friend if you have booked the same suite?

Hi, you can certainly book in the same flat as your friend.

If we have both people's details we can allocate both rooms in the same flat.

Even if different room types have been booked this is something we should still be able to do.

Not a great experience with Tramways for my first year. Do not feel security is as great as they make out, as there was a flood in a block over three weeks ago which caused electrics to be out of use which includes no elevator use or security for the main block door (don't need key fob to access the block). Some staff aren't helpful at all after expressing concerns over security they explain there's nothing they can do and that they have extra security on site due to this issue, yet the next day I come back to find the large gates left open at 10pm for any random person to walk into the grounds. As proof of this lack of security, I walked into my kitchen last Saturday morning to over 6 random boys been let into our flat by another flatmate off their heads on drugs. There is no parking facilities, don't get given much help with technical faults you just get given a laid back, can't be bothered attitude by staff who keep you in the dark about most things. Wouldn't recommend Tramways

Tramways would be a whole hearted recommendation to anyone considering booking student accommodation in Chester. The space is lovely and the staff in reception will help with any situation no matter how silly it may be. Especially Amy who gave me a cream egg to write this review.

Tramways is brilliant Accomodation! It’s right next to the train station, a short 15 minute walk from town, and. 20 minute walk from Kingsway Creative Campus (UOC) The staff at Chester are always on call, and are so helpful and friendly. They always put on events that cater to everyone, from pop quiz’s to health and well being events!

Tramways is a lovely environment and the bedroom space even in a bronze is fab! The social space is ok but isn’t used by students as well as it could be. The location is great and well secure with gates and perfect distance for town and campus. The staff are very friendly and always there to help!

Great location, wasn’t spotless when I first arrived, however the WiFi is strong with nice facilities and cooperative/friendly reception staff. Accommodation is new and modern, slightly pricy but great all round.

All of the staff are really friendly and care a lot about the residents that live here. Kitchens can often be left untidy due to residents but is no fault of tramways but is something to be aware of. Rooms are small for what you pay but do the job. Definitely one of the better student properties and very high quality for the price point. Very modern, friends have called it a miniature village haha.

I feel really safe at tramways, the staff are always lovely and willing to have a chat with you. The environment is friendly and it’s always clean. I feel Tramways is in a very good location as it’s not too far away from town or the post office.

Lived at Tramways one year and now The Towpath and they are both as bad as each other. Tramways rooms are small, you would need at least a gold to feel like you have enough room for all your things. The shared flat kitchens are small and you always have arguments so its not worth living in them. The studios are not worth what you pay for them when you can somewhere else for the same price or cheaper. Happy to say for my last year i'm steering clear of Student Roost, Tramways itself just holds too many students i feel and is WAY to far from the campus. Wouldn't suggest!

It’s a great place to live, a little far from main campus though. Very near to the city center and the train station making nights out really easy
