With three universities in Liverpool, the city thrives on the student lifestyle, and as a result you won’t be short of options when it comes to choosing somewhere to live. Whether you’d prefer to be right in the centre or closer to the suburbs, there’ll be an option to suite you.
University Halls of Residence
University of Liverpool
The University of Liverpool offers accommodation in the form of two student villages – Carnatic and Greenbank – located outside the city centre. These flats are set in their own grounds, boasting shops, computer rooms, restaurants and outdoor spaces, while a regular bus service takes you to and from the city centre and the university. You can also choose to pay for catered accommodation, which offers breakfast and dinner every day, meaning you don’t have to worry about cooking for yourself – or remembering to save some money for food!
If you’d rather live in the city, the university also offers a number of on-campus residences, including the catered Vine Court, along with a number of other self-catered options. If you are an international student you can choose to live in Tudor Close, where you can socialise with around 100 other students taking part in the university’s Study Abroad programme.
John Moores University
John Moores University guarantees accommodation to all new students, with sites throughout the city centre. With the university buildings based in different areas depending on the subject, the best choice is to check where you will be spending most of your time and choose a residence close to where you will be based.
While the university doesn’t offer any catered accommodation, all students have access to a full kitchen, while the city centre location means supermarkets and restaurants are never far away.
Although there are no special residences catering specifically to international students, they are free to apply to any site offered by the university, leaving them with a vast choice of where to live.
Liverpool Hope University
Students that will be attending Hope University have three options to choose from when it comes to accommodation. The first is Hope Park, which is located in the main teaching campus and offers a combination of en-suite and standard rooms for first year students. The second site is The Creative Campus, which is situated on the second teaching campus closer to the city, while still being away from busy centre. The final option is Aigburth Park, which is a residential campus set in it’s own grounds away from the city. While it is further away from the both the city and the university, a selection of restaurants, bars, shops, banks and even a library mean students never have to go far to find what they need.
