Smart. Secure. Handy.
Snuggled just outside of Chester’s Roman wall, Fontessa House is a fab choice if you want Chester University accommodation. You’ll find each campus just a short walk away. And you’ll never get stuck for things to do here. When student life gets to you, head to the zoo for some monkey business. Get friendly at The Bouverie or The George & Dragon, both less than a minute walk away. Or head over to Telford’s Warehouse, an independent bar, to check out the local talent.

What's it like?
Picturesque and compact, Chester is famous for its Tudor and Victorian buildings, surrounded by a red-stone Roman wall. With over 2,000 years of history at its heart, you’d forgive Chester for dwelling on the past. But wander its cobbled streets and you’ll discover contemporary food, drinks and shopping to rival any small city.

What our residents say
The service provided by reception staff and the caretakers is excellent – everyone is friendly and helpful.
Splendid! Absolutely marvelous! It's a warm, homely feeling. The staff play the leading role in making this come about. Friendly, always ready to assist. Always sorting any issues out immediately. Home.
The staff members are always so friendly and helpful. Always on top of any issues that occur. The Old Dairy is a great place to live as it has many facilities, like the study area and the lounge to just chill or play pool in.
I think this place is great, friendly staff willing to help at the drop of a hat. Any problems sorted within 24hrs. Two minutes from town and uni.
