The Department of Social and Political Science and School of Psychology are based at Parkgate Road Campus, Chester. Just a short walk from Chester’s historic city centre, students here benefit from modern teaching facilities alongside social hubs and accommodation at the heart of the University. The Institute of Policing is based at our Warrington Campus, on the edge of the thriving town and in close proximity to the M56/M6/M62 network for our commuting students.


Most Social and Political Science teaching takes place in the modern Westminster Building which also has a café. Psychology students have exclusive use of eight adaptable experimental rooms and access to a number of laboratories and varied equipment. The Institute of Policing offers bespoke facilities such as a custody suite, mock court room, interview suites, a crime scene house, a simulated road policing scene at Thornton Science Park, and the immersive learning suite Hydra.
