Most helpful review

I joined the lacrosse society this year with my flatmate from Tudor. This society made me feel welcome and I have met many lovely people that are my friends now. Never felt alone at this university and I am enjoying it a lot, my master. I feel supported by my tutor and so fare has been an amazing experience.

Student union is very welcoming, with a shop, Starbucks, a bar and plenty of seating space. Loads of sign if you get lost.

The student union is the best, SU Fridays are the best night. The SU also has different nights on different days of the week which I really enjoy. The uni is also really small which means you see the same people everyday which makes it so much easier to make friends. The wifi can be a butt slow at times though but overall the campus and facilities are really good.

I'm not on the main campus I'm on queens park campus (the new business campus) and its really nice. Just been done up and opened so all pretty new just a bit of a trek away from the main campus and where most of the accommodation is. There is a free shuttle bus but it sets off at quarter past to get there on the hour and you can walk quicker than that, especially for me as I'm staying at sumner house so therefore I would have to set off at like 5 past to walk down to campus whereas if I walk straight to queens park I don't have to set off until twenty to.

I have had a great experience at the university. The facilities on campus are great (who doesn't love grabbing a quick Starbucks before walking to a lecture at 8.30am!) and the staff and members are all very nice and welcoming!

I haven't joined any clubs or societies. The WiFi isn't always great and flickers on and off at times. However other facilities on campus are brilliant.

Amazing experience overall! However booking of sports facilities should be better organise, often double-booking has happened and it's frustrating.

Chester is a really lovely University with both a homely and City feel. It is the right balance between the countryside & city life. This thing that appealed most to me is the amazing careers facility and how they constantly support you with enhancing your CV.
