Queen's Park Campus, Chester

The prestigious Queen’s Park Campus is home to the Faculty of Business and Management. Located in the quaint Handbridge district of Chester and nestled alongside the banks of the River Dee, it’s only a stone’s throw away from Chester’s lively city centre.

Whether you’re relaxing in the formal gardens, or taking a stroll along the river, this idyllic setting provides a unique and unforgettable learning experience. As its neo-Georgian style alludes, Queen’s Park Campus beholds a rich and significant history. Formerly a bank and historic army Western Command headquarters during the Second World War, it is an inspiring setting for students training to be the strategic decision makers and managers of the future.

A £1.8 million investment has transformed the campus into a modern, high quality learning environment that houses a variety of specialist learning facilities, including: a dedicated business library with group study spaces; learning pods for quiet study; two 200-seat lecture theatres; state-of-the-art computer suites; a dedicated Student Development Room, and professional networking space.

Outside of lectures, the campus offers fantastic catering, including a Starbucks ‘grab-and-go’ cafeteria and a top-floor brasserie-style dining room overlooking Chester’s iconic riverside promenade.

Life in Chester

From its beginnings as a Roman fortress 2,000 years ago, Chester has managed to retain its unique character whilst offering everything that you would expect from a modern city today, as it becomes "a must-see European destination".

The City of Chester is a vibrant mix of cafes, shops and ancient walls, rows and architectural and archaeological features. The City is home to all-year-round arts festivals, events, exhibitions and street entertainment, including the famous Chester Races, the Rowing Regatta and the internationally acclaimed Chester Zoo.
