Thornton Science Park

Formerly the Shell Technology Centre, Thornton Science Park is a state-of-the-art facility that houses our Faculty of Science and Engineering, including the School of Computer Science and Mathematics.

Located just outside of Chester, a free shuttle bus is provided to transport students. All residential students whose courses are based at Thornton are housed on or close to the Parkgate Road Campus.

Thornton Science Park is a state-of-the-art facility providing innovative learning spaces; specialist facilities, donated to the University by Shell, are used for practical laboratory work, lectures and problem-based learning. 

As Thornton is a working science park, students are able to take advantage of working closely with on-site science and technology businesses.
