Thank you!

Alumni have fond memories of their time as students, and many feel that they would like to give something back. We would be delighted to welcome all our alumni to return, and either help us with sketching out details of what it was like to study and live here, encouraging others to get involved, or if they prefer, to donate.

We have two different approaches to our fundraising. Firstly, we are always open to receiving gifts from alumni and friends at any time for a general fund which is administered where need is greatest. Secondly, we also run specific campaigns. A recent campaign was the installation of a stained glass window in the University Chapel to commemorate the 175th anniversary of the University. Thanks to the generosity of alumni, the alumni window was installed and a special service of celebration held in June 2016. A selection of photos from the event can be viewed here.

We plan to continue fundraising for other projects and for the general benefit of students throughout 2018. If you would like to support our cause, please speak to Helena Astbury, Head of Development and Alumni Relations Office, 01244 511005 or

Please make cheques payable to: University of Chester (Donation). If you would like your donation to be eligible for gift aid, please complete this form, print it off and send it with your cheque, to: Development and Alumni Relations Office, University of Chester, Parkgate Road, Chester, CH1 4BJ.

Leaving a legacy
After you have provided for your family and loved ones, please consider leaving something to the University of Chester in your Will. This is one of the simplest and most flexible ways of giving, which enables future generations of students to benefit from the great educational experience here at Chester.

You are welcome to call us to talk through your plans, and we recommend that you discuss this with your Solicitor to ensure that everything is carried out according to your wishes.


Thank you for helping us to make an investment for our current and future students.
