About Fontessa House

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 Telford’s Warehouse. The campuses are also minutes away:

University of Chester – Parkgate Road Campus – 7-minute walk | 2-minute bike ride
University of Chester – Riverside Campus – 15-minute walk | 10-minute bike ride
University of Chester – Kingsway Campus – 25-minute walk | 15-minute bike ride
University of Chester – Queen’s Park Campus – 20-minute walk | 10-minute bike ride

All of our 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, we have you covered. We 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, you’d 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.

Booking Info

If you cancel your room booking within 14-days of your Accommodation Offer (provided you have not seen the accommodation) then you will be entitled to a full refund of booking fees. After 14 days, the booking fee is non-refundable.

If you do not sign the tenancy agreement within the 14-days cool off period, the landlord will cancel your booking automatically and retain your booking fee.

If you have made your booking less than 14 days before your scheduled check-in date, you may cancel your booking until the 14-days after receipt of the Accommodation Offer or the date you actually check-in, whichever comes earlier.

If you cancel your booking after the 14-days cool off period, your booking fees is not refunded and you will be required to meet the obligations set out within the Tenancy Agreement until you are able to find a replacement tenancy to take over your tenancy.

If for any reason you decide to leave during your contracted term after moving in, the landlord may agree to release you from your contract. In this case, you are required to provide a replacement tenant to take over your room for the remaining period of your contract.

If you do not meet the grades of the university you initially applied to OR fail to receive a VISA, you may be released from the contract and receive a refund of your deposit provided you provide the documents as proof of this.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Can I choose who I live with?

We are more than happy to accommodate groups as well as individuals. Where you’re not booking in a group, we understand your flat mates will be key to your experience so when you book as an individual, we will ask you a series of questions to help us to match you with the perfect flatmates.

Students do not have to pay Council Tax, but the council must be informed that you are a student and apply for exemption as this does not automatically happen. It is the responsibility of every student to apply for exemption, your University/College or accommodation provider* cannot do this for you, though we can help you!

Facilities and features can vary; typically you are provided with a bed, a study with a desk and a chair, bookshelves, wardrobe and plenty of storage.
