Im coming to Liverpool in September and am really stuck choosing accommodation.
This is my dilema....

Pros of Self catered:
cook own food
ensuite
nicer rooms
near everything (gym/ nightlife/ lectures)
Cons:
Not where most freshers will be
not near sports grounds
concerns of being on a floor with dissimilar people to myself.

Pros of student village:
Way more sociable.
don't have to cook or budget
near sports grounds
cons:
set meal times... might be a waste
no ensuite
not near lectures/ gym/ nightlife

if anyone can help me make my mind up i'd appreciate it!

Hii, I'm currently staying in Crown Place and thought I'd help clarify the social aspect of Crown. I'm in a studio flat, which I panicked about my social life from the moment I found out it was my accommodation offer.
To be completely honest, it hasn't been unsociable at all, all of my flatmates are sociable, you get to know other flats, even those not on your floor. Sure it's not like Carnatic where the walls are paper thin or you make friends over dinner (if you even make it to that) but it's not this big unsociable place as some have made it out to be, and at the end of the day it's down to you how sociable you make university.

Thanks Libbie,
I appreciate the help, and after speaking to other people i know at the uni, they have said very similar things to you! The accommodation looks really nice and i have actually put it down as my first choice, so fingers crossed!

Hi, does anyone have any experience of applying to private accommodaion as an undergrad 1st year? The student villages are catered (I want to go self-catered) and the only uni- owned self catered is expensive.
When should I apply if I want accommodation from september/what should I look out for? I have been sent the link to Liverpool Student Homes by the uni already.
I'm staying at North Western Halls, and I'm a 3rd University of Liverpool student. Sanctuary Students have often been synonymous with John Moores, but I have just chose here due to it's location appropriateness and how cheap it is. It's also self-catered if you're wondering about that. Sure, you may not meet as many people on your course as you would in Carnatic, but I'm finding it a cheap and relaxing place to live in. So far, I've been in a University-based student village, a shared student home, and I'm now living private halls. If you'd like to know anything, just shoot me a PM.

Oh, and for anyone looking for a 'great social life', Carnatic is undoubtedly the best from what I've experienced. Just take my word on it.

If I know Liverpool will definitely be either my firm or insurance can I go ahead and apply for accommodation now I have an offer or do I need to wait until I've officially accepted the offer on UCAS as I still have universities to hear from?

I was stuck on this for months!!! Didn't know either to brave the student village for a chance of a better social life or go onto campus for really good quality accommodation for a good price!

I chose Melville grove because it was the cheapest accommodation, fully refurbished for this year, short walk to campus and self catered! All I'm worried about with Melville is because no ones properly lived in the accommodation since 2013, no one knows how to social vibe will be there? But I'm hoping it'll be really good!! I would definitely recommend people having a look, it's amazing rooms for a really good price

Hi!

Glad you liked Liverpool Uni! Me and my friends are actually looking for a girl flatmate in private halls. It's 2 minutes from the university, so just a short walk into town and the shops. All ensuite self catered. We are five girls studying Medicine, Bio-med, French and Architecture. We have a dining area, lounge and kitchen and it's all really modern and sociable. It's a really popular accommodation and there are only 7 spaces left in the whole accommodation.

We don't blame you for not wanting to move into Carnatic or Greenbank, we've experienced it and it's not for everyone. We'll be going into our second years but we're friendly girls and we'd love to help you settle into uni and we do love to go out too!

If anyone is interested it's £120 a week and if you type in Europa Liverpool you'll see what it looks like

Thank youuuu xxx

I've been offered a Single Bed in Rankin Hall on Carnatic Campus and I don't know if I can still get a place at Melville Grove or Crown Place if I decline.

So I applied for crown place double, single and vine court single ( all ensuite) but I've been given a double ensuite at Philharmonic court which is a lot more expensive than both of these... It's supposed to be good and modern because its only just opening this year but is it going to be worth £150 per week?? And is it possible for me to still get into Crown place or Vine court??
I've been given the same. I phone up and found out that the only available self-catered accommodation left is off campus or in studios/private accommodation. Philharmonic court is modern and on campus, the pictures look decent and I can't find any poor reviews.
