Riverside Campus, Chester

The Riverside Campus provides specialist teaching facilities for most students in the Chester-based Faculties of Education and Children’s Services, and Health and Social Care

The University took ownership of the former County Hall in Chester in 2010 and transformed it into the Riverside Campus building, which provides exceptionally high quality and state-of-the-art facilities for its two resident faculties. This iconic building in the centre of Chester is just a 20-minute walk from the main Chester Campus.

Riverside Campus houses the Library collections for Education and Children’s Services and Health and Social Care students along with several IT laboratories for 'open access' and teaching use. All of the teaching spaces are equipped with high-grade audiovisual technology and provide an excellent learning experience.

In addition, Riverside Campus provides a 192-seat lecture theatre, containing raked seating and a widescreen capable of showing Blu-ray and HD films.

Dining@Dee, Riverside’s own café and coffee shop, serves hot and cold drinks, snacks and delicious meals. Meanwhile, the Student Space provides social, group work and discussion space for students, with hot and cold drinks vending machines and snack machines available, and students are able to eat their own food here.

Wirral Site

Facilities include a dedicated subject library, classrooms, seminar rooms, and clinical skills labs. Faculty staff are based here specifically to support you throughout your programme of education.
