Chester Student House Share Guide 2022
A house share is a popular option for Chester University Students and those training at The Hammond. They give you a greater sense of freedom and independence than you get with private halls or living on campus. You get to move in with friends, enjoy the freedom of your own place and have a great social life too.
After living on campus for your first year, you’ll no doubt have formed a nice friendship group and you’ll likely want to spread your wings a little, giving you more independence and allow you to enjoy the benefits of living in a shared house for your second and third year.
Benefits of a student house share
Larger communal areas
A student house share typically has larger communal areas for you to socialise, host parties and enjoy some downtime. You’ll still be able to have your own privacy though in your bedroom, so you won’t feel like you’re living in other people’s pockets all the time.
Moving into a student house share is often a great way to start learning about how to look after yourself – whether you like it or not! Living with others will help you to learn the importance of doing your bit and playing your part in keeping a household running smoothly. You’ll have control over your washing, cooking your own meals, and all the independence of running your own house.
Being in close proximity to all your lectures and social activities in Chester is vital as a student. You’ll want to be in a short walk/cycle from your university lectures, as well as easy distance to bars, clubs and supermarkets.
Our student house shares allow you to live in a central Chester location at a price that you can afford.
