Shouldn't put you off the uni, all cities have 'bad areas' Liverpool isn't going to be an exception.

I go to Uni of Liverpool. You don't come across many chavs! Particularly on campus city centre is very diverse, you're more likely to see a mass range of cultures opposed to chavs.. However they do exist, but of the 'chavs' you do see, the majority are very friendly, decent people. It's just a fashion choice that defines them! Liverpool is one of the friendliest cities ive ever been too :-)

Its like every area; you get chavs and you get non-chavs. Liverpool is just stereotyped as being full of chavs due to how it was portrayed on TV in the 80s and 90s. I don't live too far from there and I feel safer at
night in Liverpool City Centre compared to where I live which is meant to be "posher".

Fights outside pubs can happen anywhere; I was in Chester (which is generally considered to be posh) the other week and saw one there. As another poster has already said you do get quite a few people in Liverpool who appear chavvy (e.g. drawn on eyebrows, tracksuits etc) but it doesn't necessarily mean that they're chavs; its just how they choose to look. Which uni are you applying too?

I'm from Liverpool and feel I can give a non bias and accurate view. In the areas outside Liverpool city centre there are more 'chavs' but there's not that many. The city centre is incredibly diverse and it's a wonderful place to go, you'll have no problems there and I suspect apart from campus that's where you will be most. As for campus, almost everyone comes from outside the city (especially those who are living on campus) and are just as anxious as you about this.

No but they aren't far from the city centre; Liverpool One is pretty close to the Albert Docks.

Liverpool isn't very chavvy, at least in the centre, while there are some more chavvy areas on the outskirts.

I've lived in Liverpool for 18 years (all my life) and been to many different cities and non of them compare to Liverpool!! Probably the most friendly and funny city you'll ever visit. There's chav's in every area and Liverpool isn't any exception but honestly 'the chav's' don't bother you unless you bother them . You won't regret coming to Liverpool! I'm just sad I can't stay here for university, I'm moving away unfortunately
