Welcome to Fontessa House: student accommodation located close to Chester city centre. Snuggled just outside the city walls, Fontessa House is a fab choice for student living. You will never get stuck for things to do here. Head to the zoo for some monkey business, get friendly at The Bouverie or The George & Dragon, or head over to Telfords Warehouse. The campuses are also minutes away:


All of their studios and cluster en-suites are designed to help you make the most of your time at university. They are spacious & comfortable with plenty of room to relax and study, and they include little luxuries like beautiful kitchens and bathrooms.


Whichever room option you go for, there is so much more on offer at Fontessa House. From the communal area to the on-site bike storage and laundry facilities, they have you covered. They even take care of your utility bills and provide you with free Wi-Fi and broadband throughout.


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, youd forgive Chester for dwelling on the past. But wander its cobbled streets, and you will discover contemporary food, drinks and shopping to rival any small city.
