After a year in halls, a lot of students will want to move out in to private rented accommodation. See below some advice on the steps to take.
Every year we see students rush to sign agreements with flat mates or course friends, and while the majority of the time they work out okay, there are always scenarios when the decision has been made too soon. It's crucial that you remember there is a large supply of student accommodation in Liverpool so do not rush in to any decisions or agreements. There are always plenty of rooms available and they will continue to come up as others plans change.
Liverpool Student Homes
LSH is a University-funded service for students in private accommodation, providing free housing advice to all students. LSH will also organise Housing Talks and Housemate mixers and, again, we will advertise these on all of the channels listed above. LSH also have a Landlord Accreditation scheme, you can find out more about this (and other services they offer) here.
Stay in Halls
If you want to stay in halls you have two options, the first is to apply for a room in Dover Court where second and third years live. You can find out more about Dover Court here. You can also apply to become a Residential Adviser. Residential Advisers (RA) live amongst students in all 7 of our Halls of Residences. The RAs role is to provide support, guidance and out of hours contact for our residents, as well as help to run our exciting social programme. For providing this service RAs receive reduced accommodation, details of which you can find here. Click here to learn more about becoming an RA
