Going to university isn’t just about studying for a degree; it’s about the whole student experience, meeting new people, looking after yourself and establishing your new life. Our accommodation residences give you the perfect base for studying and enjoying everything the University and the city have to offer.
University Halls of Residence offer students a comfortable and safe setting with a strong residential support network on hand at all times. These close-knit communities help new students to integrate by providing exclusive social events where lifelong friendships will be made.
Whether you live in our campus-based accommodation or our off-campus Student Villages, you will be able to access a range of recreational facilities within easy travelling distance of the city centre. Our Halls Student Experience Team organise events throughout the year and strongly encourage both students’ involvement and ideas for future activities.
Carnatic and Greenbank Student Villages are home to a thriving community of exclusively first-year undergraduates with a vibrant social scene. Many events are hosted on the spacious grounds and various communal spaces located at the two sites, from sports clubs and society meetings to formal dinners. Both Villages are located in the leafy residential area of Mossley Hill, close to the popular areas of Allerton and Smithdown Road where many students choose to live in their subsequent years of study.
Greenbank Student Village
With its historic parkland and listed mansion house, Greenbank Student Village comprises a lively community of approximately 420 students. Sporting facilities include Greenbank mini-gym and outside tennis courts, with large green spaces for summer activities.
Carnatic Student Village
Carnatic consists of five individual Residences totalling around 1,100 students who enjoy the central restaurant and bar as well as other amenities, including a music room, meeting areas and communal study rooms.
Students who live on campus are within walking distance of the University academic departments and recreational facilities as well as the city centre.
