Accommodation

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.


Greenbank Student Village

Greenbank is 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, from sports clubs and society meetings to formal dinners. The student village is 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.

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.


Campus Residences

Students who live on campus are within walking distance of the University academic departments and recreational facilities as well as the city centre.

Crown Place, Philharmonic Court and Vine Court

These modern Halls of Residence offer students a high standard of accommodation and are extremely popular with current students. Study bedrooms are all en-suite with WiFi connection and shared kitchen and lounge areas. There are laundrettes, outdoor social spaces and communal chill-out spaces, along with an excellent restaurant and café at Vine Court.

Student tips

One of the best ways to get a sense of which accommodation is right for you is to hear from students themselves. Some of our student bloggers have written great posts full of advice about choosing your accommodation. Have a read of their blogs here:
