Hi I just applied for accommodation in the University of Liverpool and I have chosen Crown Place. I myself enjoy going out regularly, and these halls are located close enough to the town centre and they have a central location along with a nice decor. I have recently visited Liverpool and passed these halls so I am aware of the location and I believe they are suited for me.

Applied for carnatic halls as I heard from my friend that goes there now that the off campus is definitely more sociable than the on campus. I quite like socializing so I'm hoping this will suit me. I was a bit worried about going catered instead of self catering as I didn't know if it would be harder to make friends but I think I'm just a worrier haha.

My choices are:

1) Rankin
2) Lady Mountford
3) Morton

I didn't see the off campus accommodation when I looked round on the open day and the pictures on the website aren't great. I've searched on here but can only find pictures of Morton so if anyone has any pictures of these halls please please could they post them! I will be so grateful

Currently a first year student living in greenbank halls. I found it really hard to find any info last year about halls so thought I would help abit. The off campus (greenbank and Carnatic) are probably a bit more socialable and most of these places are catered. Catered is good as going for meals becomes quite socialable. Food is okay. Can kitchen sizes vary. Most people will get one of these two over on campus (vine court and crown) even if you put none of these in your options it's really **** how they do it. I would say greenbank food is slightly better due to the less volume of people to serve. Rankin is probably the best hall facilities wise as tey renovated it a couple of years ago to give a social area. Any questions feel free to contact me.

Could anyone give me some advice on accommodation? I'm applying a bit late and just looking at my options here.. (coming from NI)

Preferably like to be on campus as I've heard buses etc are a pain. I like the look of Crown Place. Vine Court is a bit more expensive and it seems to be more pointed towards 2nd year students?

What halls are the best for a 'student experience'? I'd rather be in halls with other first years and be sociable. Any advice at all on the halls would be great.

I have a problem, I am 100% sure I want to live in crown because it's cheaper I can make my own food and it's close to the city however my parents (who are paying for the Acomadation) are 100% that Carnatic is the right place so I want be placed with non English speaking students, I'll be fed and they see it as more sociable, I disagree. Anyone know any ways of changing their minds? I can't afford to pay myself 😩

Crown place is more expensive than any offsite accommodation, you know. And offsite has food included so that makes it even cheaper.....

You might want to rethink that argument

Is there anybody who actually lived in Crown Place who can share their experience? I'm hoping to study Politics next year and applied for Crown Place but all of this talk about it being unsociable is making me worried

Stay in a student village like Carnatic because even though they look a bit 'run down', those are the best places to meet other students and they will be the liveliest places however it also means it is so loud and you hardly get any sleep which would be difficult if you have loads of 9 am lectures. Side note: I'm sure if the noise become intolerable, you can kindly ask them to be more considerate but for the most part Carnatic will be the best place for social life. Plus there is also a student bus taking you directly to campus which takes around 20 mins.

I've just finished first year at Uni of Liv and like you, when I was applying for accommodation I really liked the look of the on-campus halls but i wasn't placed in any of my top three and was put in to Carnatic. In all honesty I'm so glad they did!!! If I was you I'd go for the student villages; they're the liveliest, it's so easy to make friends, and not having to cook is amazing! I had friends in Crown Place and they said they hardly spoke to their flatmates and it just wasn't a good atmosphere. Although they look a little run down and a bus pass costs a bomb, go for the villages and you'll have an amazing year

As a Northern Irish person living in Carnatic please think about how you're moving your stuff around. The city centre is easier as it is close to the ferry terminal and the buses going to the airport and hauling my baggage from the 80a bus stop was a nightmare so do bring assistance. Also travel light you will be thankful for it later.
