The Accommodation Guarantee

The Accommodation Guarantee has been extended to support students who come to Liverpool as an Insurance or Clearing choice. This means that once you apply for accommodation, you will receive an offer either for University Halls (subject to availability) or with one of our University Approved Providers.

This also includes students who have had their grades affected by the results change. All students who are due to start September 2020 are guaranteed accommodation.

Following the Results Change, I now have a confirmed place at the University of Liverpool, can I still have accommodation?

Congratulations on your place at the University of Liverpool! Please be reassured that the Accommodation Guarantee is still in place and remains for all students who require accommodation for 2020 entry. This will either be in our University of Liverpool Halls or with our fantastic University Approved providers. You will be living with other University of Liverpool 1st Year students. All the providers are honouring a short Tenancy Agreement of 37 weeks to ensure that you are only paying for accommodation whilst you need it. As well as this, you will be released from your contract if you withdraw from University with a 28 day notice period.

If you have already applied for accommodation, just log onto Liverpool Life to check that this is still in place. Once we receive your application and your status is confirmed as an Expected Entrant (this may take a few days), we will send you an offer of accommodation.

If you have not yet applied for accommodation, head over to the How to Apply page and Apply Now! Once we receive your application and your status is confirmed as an Expected Entrant (this may take a few days), we will send you an offer of accommodation.

Although you may not receive an offer from us straight away, we have some brilliant accommodation on offer for you. Please do not be put off at the wait and book into the private sector direct – you could end up with a longer tenancy agreement that will cost more.

I am waiting for a course change, will this affect my accommodation application?

If you are waiting for a course change, this will not affect your accommodation offer. As soon as your course change is complete, and your status updates to Expected Entrant (can take a few days) you will receive an offer of accommodation from us. This will either be in our University of Liverpool Halls or with our fantastic University Approved providers. You will be living with other University of Liverpool 1st Year students. All the providers are honouring a short Tenancy Agreement of 37 weeks to ensure that you are only paying for accommodation whilst you need it. As well as this, you will be released from your contract if you withdraw from University with a 28-day notice period.

Although you may not receive an offer from us straight away, we have some brilliant accommodation on offer for you. Please do not be put off at the wait and book into the private sector direct – you could end up with a longer tenancy agreement that will cost more.

I am an Insurance Choice Student who has now got the grades to go to my Firm Choice University

If you have chosen to accept a place at the University of Liverpool as an Insurance Choice student and now have the grades to take a place at your Firm Choice University, we will release you from your Accommodation Licence. Simply log into Liverpool Life and head to the My Requests section. Here you can submit a Termination Request – complete this and in the notes advise that you have been offered a place at your Firm University. We will arrange for your booking to be cancelled and you will receive your £150 refund within 28 days.

Had your place at University of Liverpool confirmed?

If you have already applied for accommodation, you will receive an offer of accommodation from Monday 17th - Friday 28th August 2020. 

It’s a good idea to check you can log in to Liverpool Life before Monday 17 August, you will be able to access from Friday 14th August.

We allocate and send offers in date order: the earlier you applied, the earlier in the week you will hear from us. We have some great accommodation available for you, both our own University Accommodation and also some brilliant options with our University Approved Providers.

You will receive your accommodation offer via email, and you will have 24 hours to accept the offer. Once accepted, you will be asked to pay a £150 deposit. Please ensure you read through the Terms and Conditions as you are accepting a legally binding Student Accommodation Licence. Once accepted, you enter a 7 day cooling off period where you can cancel your licence and recieve your deposit back.

For more information on what to expect following accepting your offer, please check out our 2020/21 FAQs

Dates of your Student Licence

This year due to Covid-19, our Student Licence has slightly different dates. Your offer will be for a 37 week contract from 5th October 2020 to 19th June 2021. You will be able to arrive earlier than this in time for welcome week. Around the end of August, you will be invited to choose an arrival slot in order to move into halls. These will be available from 26th September  - 4th October. You will not be charged for arriving during this period.

Want to apply for Accommodation as an Insurance or Clearing Student?

The great news is that for 2020 entry, we have extended the Accommodation Guarantee for Insurance and Clearing Students! This means that you can apply for accommoadtion and we will assist you with securing good quality halls either in our Halls or with one of our University Approved Providers.

As part of your offer to study at the Unviversity of Liverpool, you will be issued with a Student ID. This is a 9 digit number, starting with '20' ie '201012345'.

Once you have this, you can apply here.

You will be able to apply for accommodation from Friday 14th August.

As part of your application, you will be asked to selct three preferences. Please note, that as a clearing offer holder, it is unlikely you will receive one of your preferences. We will allocate rooms in date/time order and will offer you the best room available.

We will send an offer to you as soon as we can. This will be between Monday 17th - Friday 28th August 2020. You offer will either be for University Accommodation or for one of our brilliant University Approved Providers.

Insurance Choice who has already Applied for Accommodation?

If you are an Insurance Choice Student who has already applied for accommodation, we will be in touch with an offer between Monday 17th and Friday 21st August 2020. Where possible, we will try to offer you one of your preferences, however this may not be possible. 

University Approved Providers

Each year, we work with some fantastic Private Student Accommodation Providers to make sure that you have a good quality place to live within walking distance from campus. Not only this, we also make sure that you are offered the same length Tenancy Agreement as UoL Halls (37 Weeks), so you are not paying for weeks that you do not need.

This year, our University Approved Providers are:

Kaplan Living We are very excited to offer accommodation to students in the beautiful and brand new Kaplan Residence. Opened this year, and opposite Crown Place, you couldn't be any closer to campus if you tried! Rooms are all self catered and ensuite, with weekly prices from £165.

Student Roost We have worked with Student Roost for a number of years now, and we are pleased to offer 2 properties: The Railyard and Myrtle Court for students arriving September 2020. Both these properties are ensuite and self catered, and less than a 5 minute walk to campus. With prices starting from £119 per week, they are a fantastic and affordable option.

We also have a great relationship with Unite Students and Campus Living Villages who will also be able to offer some rooms should we require them.

All providers have ensured they have robust safety measures in place to support students through the Covid-19 pandemic. Use the links above to check out what measures each provider has in place on their websites.

It is really important that when applying for you University Approved accommodation you follow the instructions sent to you via email. We have shorter contract lengths and special pricing to ensure you are getting the best deal. If you do not apply through the process in the email, you may not receive these rates or contract length.

It is also very important to ensure you read through your Terms and Conditions. Your Accommodation Contract/Tenancy Agreement will be with the Provider and not the University of Liverpool.

Applying for University Approved Accommodation

The process to apply is very straightforward:

1) Apply for Accommodation

2) Wait to receive an offer email from Monday 17th August (can take up to 2 weeks for Insurance and Clearing students). If we have availbiiaty in UoL halls, we will send out an offer for you to accept. If you receive an offer for the University Approved Providers, the informaiton on booking your room will be enclosed.

3) Follow the instructions in the offer email. Depending on the provider, you will either be able to book through a web link, or will need to call a dedicated UoL phone line.

4) Sit back, and await further instructions from the University Approved Provider!
