Insider’s guide to Liverpool

The city of Liverpool shapes the University through its dynamic spirit, global outlook and pioneering opportunities. We shape the city through our extensive collaborative local network.

Energetic, beautiful, creative; there is nowhere quite like Liverpool.

Although some of our favourite places might not be quite ready to welcome you yet, we hope Liverpool will be your home for some time to come and before long you’ll be able to fully enjoy everything that the city has to offer.

We asked our students to share their Liverpool with you, have a read of their favourite places in their own words.
