Queen's Park Campus, Chester

The prestigious new Queen's Park Campus is situated only a very short walk away from the lively city centre, and provides a friendly, secure and supportive environment in which to study. The site provides specialist teaching facilities for students of University of Chester Business School in the Faculty of Business and Management. 

Formerly a bank and historic army Western Command headquarters during the Second World War, Churchill and Bridge House is a fitting site for Chester Business School students, training to be the strategic decision makers and managers of the future. Churchill and Bridge House was purchased by the University of Chester in March 2015 and features state-of-the-art learning facilities, including student-friendly learning zones, a dedicated business library, open-access computer suites containing the latest IT equipment, and quiet areas for study in learning pods and student development rooms containing snug-style seating areas.

With luxurious fittings and historic features, Queen's Park Campus provides a prestigious environment for study which mirrors the corporate environment. Acting as a corporate hub, Chester Business School’s many partners from the public and private sectors are regularly welcomed to the site for business events. 

Fabulous on-site catering facilities include Montgomery's, a Starbucks ‘grab-and-go’ cafeteria and eat-your-own-food area. For dining in style, the De Gaulle Brasserie is situated on the top-floor with picturesque views over the River Dee.

There are areas for students to socialise outside the building as well, with access to riverside walks and the Meadows, as well as Queen's Park Campus's own green expanse of formal gardens and grounds leading down to the river.

Queen's Park Campus is one of the closest of our Chester sites to the historic city centre – only a short 5-10 minute walk away. If you are studying at Queen's Park Campus, you will also be able to easily reach the student accommodation and the facilities of Parkgate Road Campus, Chester, as they are only a short bus ride or walk away.

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.
