Hi everyone!!

I am a friendly, soon to be postgraduate student looking for a lovely single room near the University of Liverpool.

I will be looking to move in from September 2014 and leave some time in June 2015.

My only requirements are that since I will be doing late nights, that the room is close to the main university campus (within a 15 minute walk), and that it is relatively clean and modern due to my asthma.

It would be great to live with postgrads, although don't mind a mixed group of people.

If anyone has a room available during this time please let me know

Thank you all for reading!

Kind Regards

Sam

Hi, Sam

I am in a similar situation... starting part 2 architecture in September. New to Liverpool so a little clueless where to start looking. Hoping to find somewhere fairly close to uni too.

Hi Ria,

I plan on going to Liverpool for a weekend on the 21st-22nd June to see what areas are walkable etc.

If you want, we could team up and try to find some others for a houseshare

Hi Sam,

I am unable to make it to Liverpool for the open day.
But as we are both going to do our part 2 and looking for somewhere fairly close to the University, I think teaming up sounds like a good plan.
Let me know what your thoughts are after you have visited this weekend.
I am from Manchester but working in Leeds atm, so I can easily go to visit Liverpool another weekend.
Where are you from?

Ria

I'm from Oxford, so it's an absolute trek :P
I'm looking at a few places this weekend to get an idea of what I can get for my money. If any ae good and there's spare rooms going, I'll let you know

A lot of the rents say they begin in June/July, but I find that some are happy starting from September which is good since I can't afford paying 2 rents.

Hi Ria, I am still looking myself, so I'm still up for it, in terms of budget, I would preferably like to be under 400 pcm. If you do find anything, please keep me updated, meanwhile, I am also searching online and stuff.

Hi everyone I found a house a fortnight ago in Empress Rd Kensington Fields. The place is six beds and last time I checked ha myself and a mature student. I think Jo, the landlord, wats to make it a mature house.

It's currently being renovated but I saw a show house which was really nice! It's £90pw with no summer rent and a deposit of £150 that goes towards the first month of rent (starting Sept 15th)

Her website is below if interested but currently doesn't have images of the house I'm moving to or the one I viewed.

Thanks sam, I've had a look at the property (with images she put on it) its location is perfect, and id have to trust your opinion with the rooms and house etc, but it sounds really nice, and most importantly, its also within budget, I am currently in contact with jo now, asking for further information, but thank you very much for it.

The house is currently being completely remodelled and refurbished so there aren't any photos of it up yet (apparently it will be done by the end of August). It doesn't have a garden though like many of the houses in it's time, just a small yard. Not sure if this is a problem for you, but it seems nice in general.

Hi everyone, I am also returning to Liverpool to complete my part II and looking for accommodation for this coming September. It would be great to find a place with fellow architects! Have any of you had success in finding a place yet? Since I studied at Liverpool for my part I I could give some insight into which areas are preferable. It is very easy to find nice accommodation in Liverpool but living with other architects would be far better.

Hi lee, you should have a look at the house sam brought up, I have been in contact with jo, the landlord, and I think she has 1/2 room left to rent? It's worth contacting her about, as the house is quite nice, and it's not too expensive (95 pounds per week). So I'd say it's definitely worth asking about.

Thanks. I've got it touch so just waiting for a reply. It's a nice area and it's only 15 minute walk from the Architecture building.
