Queen's Park Campus, Chester

Only minutes from Chester’s historic city centre, and nestled alongside the banks of the River Dee, Queen’s Park Campus offers a unique and unforgettable learning experience at the University of Chester Business School.

Most recently a bank, it was once the historical Western Command headquarters for the Army during World War Two, making this a fitting location for leaders of the future to flourish.

Over £1.8 million has been invested in the learning facilities at Queen’s Park Campus. On-site facilities include: a dedicated business library with group study spaces, learning pods for quiet study, two 250-seat lecture theatres, high-quality computer suites, and a dedicated Student Development Room.

The campus also has fantastic catering, including a cafeteria with a Starbucks ‘grab-and-go’ counter and bring your own food area. There are areas for students to socialise outside the building, with access to riverside walks and the Meadows.

The student accommodation and the facilities of Parkgate Road Campus, Chester, are also within walking distance or a short bus ride.

Not only an academic site, this campus also operates as a much sought after corporate hub for a wide range of partners from the public and private sector. This gives you plenty of opportunity to network with likeminded people and potential future employers on a regular basis.
