At Chester, there's the students union bar, Rosies and Cruise. It's not a wide variety, but people seem to fit into one of three rather well.×

I don't drink all that much compared to a lot of people I know, but I've found that there are lots of places to find a cheap drink - you just have to look around a bit. You'll develop favourites anyway, so you may find that cost isn't always high on your list of priorities when you're out. That said, in freshers' week and for some time afterwards, I did spend over 50 a night - when I do drink, I do it well! Anyway, there are a variety of supermarkets around Chester (I am devoutly loyal to Tesco, myself). Food from the uni does seem to be pretty extortionate, even with student discounts. I recommend against frequenting the refectories! Chester is a great community and there are usually plenty of part-time jobs going for the willing student, although you may find you have to travel a bit. That said, Chester's a small city with fairly good transportation, so any travelling shouldn't be too bad.×

i was not allocated university accommodation despite living quite far away as the university was my second choice. the private accommodation i took is quite nice, the decor is a little outdated but the location is good and the communal spaces are a good size. the landlady is a bit of a pain though and tends to turn up unannounced.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
