Student Accommodation

  • All new students are guaranteed university accommodation, with rooms set aside in specific Halls for postgraduate and mature students who require a quieter working environment.
  • In addition, LJMU funds a housing agency called Liverpool Student Homes, in partnership with the other universities in the city. LSH is a great source of advice on other types of accommodation which may be more suitable for postgraduate students.
