Our residences provide more than a place to sleep. They are lively, friendly communities with great facilities ranging from café’s to libraries. Why not take a look around using our virtual open day.
By living in University accommodation, you can also take advantage of discounted membership to the campus Sports and Fitness Centre, and up to 75% off trips organised through the “give it a go” programme at the Liverpool Guild of Students.
Specifically trained Residential Advisers live in our accommodation, and are are able to deal with any concerns and will be the first point of contact for any incidents or emergencies. They are also there to assist and advise on matters such as feeling home sick or study/revision advice.
As all of our accommodation is supported in partnership with Xian Jiaotong-Liverpool University, we want our students to succeed – and we understand that having a comfortable place to live is a big part of that.

Completed applications will be acknowledged via email.
When you receive your University of Liverpool Student ID number, which for most XJTLU students will be in April, we will then send a formal offer for you to accept via our Liverpool Life portal.
Please be advised that this App is for students who are currently studying in XJTLU and will be coming to the University of Liverpool for the first year.
Applying after receiving your University of Liverpool Student ID number
If you have not yet applied through the app, and wish to apply for accommodation after you have received your Student ID number, you will need to apply for accommodation through the Liverpool Life portal. To do this, please log in using your Student ID number. Click “Set up your PIN for first time”. Instructions will then be sent to you on how to set up your pin.
Once you have set your pin and successfully logged in, click “continue to your application” under the accommodation section. Please create your application for the 2020/21 academic year and select your student type as XJTLU. This will then send an application to us and we will send you an offer when your academic status shows as Expected Entrant.
XJTLU students are then guaranteed accommodation either within University-owned or University-approved accommodation, as long as they have accepted a conditional place at the University of Liverpool and have applied for their accommodation no later than 31st July.
