    I was wondering what the best options are for accommodation are for me while studying Psychology at LJMU. I don't particularly care for en-suite, but would love great facilities and a good location (in terms of night-life and also for the course). I really don't know where to begin so bit of a guide (in any depth) would be greatly appreciated.. Thanks

    Hi Catriona,

    I've applied for psychology as well at ljmu the accommodation I've gone for is the glassworks which are en suite, the accommodation isn't too far away from the lectures 0.3mile I believe I've seen. As for nightlife it's about half a mile from Matthew street as well
    Hope this helps,
    Greg

    Cheers for the reply Greg! I've gone for Marybone 1- it made the most sense to me! The glassworks look lovely though I was really considering there too. Thanks again for the reply

    I am going to be studying wilidlife conversation at LJMU james parson building and I applied for glassworks as I noticed it to be new and looking quite nice as well as being close to my University building. However, upon looking up reviews there just seems to be nothing about glassworks...I like a party, I like a bit of communal space, maybe a bit of garden too, can anybody advise if I have made a mistake? Is the accommodation I am staying in quiet? Will it being boring essentially.

    There is communal space at the glassworks I believe it will be on the ground floor and am not to sure about it being quiet but rather it is what you make it I would have thought in all truth.

    Yeah that's true mate! I was just thinking of obviously being with like minded people who mostly are up for the same thing and not being too quiet! I did look at grand central but seen that it is probably one of those contracts to not go near, its a hard choice as don't want to be stuck there in a contract just no way of making my mind up.

    Hi, I'm going to be studying events management in September and I'm stuck between the choice of halls or private accommodation. I am currently 23 but wil be 24 at the start of the course so classed as a mature student. I still want to have a good time and enjoy uni life (going out etc) but would it be possible for me to be grouped with older people?

    Also, I have a car but I have seen most halls charge a lot for a space so would I be best to sell it or leave it at home?

    Hey,

    If you speak to the accommodation team, they can try and put you with people around the same age: +44 (0) 151 231 4166 / [email protected].

    I was 24 when I started, and rented privately outside the city centre, which did isolate me a little. Halls are a good idea for you, but I totally get asking about a similar age group, the age gap isn't massive but I think you would feel it living with 18 year olds. Try email accommodation? I'm pretty sure I've asked about this before.

    There's always house shares too, people living in them will be in their 20s.

    Also, I'd leave the car at home! x

    Hey,
    I will be 22 when I start and I've already secured my place for accommodation. I very much doubt the age gap will matter too much, as for the noise I have heard that Marybone is a safe bet - central, good value and not one of the 'party party' halls..
    I'm so excited to start!

    Hi my friend and I are struggling to choose accommodation, we are studying in the Redmonds building and tom Reilly building I think so we are trying to find accommodation that is quite close to both and also not too far away from nightlife etc. Preferably somewhere with an ensuite that is lively, do you have any recommendations? Thanks

    You can also try Campusboard.co.uk, I found a room in a flatshare with 3 other Masters and PhD students. Maybe you can find somewhere that suits you.
