    I've applied to start at LJMU in September and I know applications for accommodation opened 1st of Feb but I haven't looked round any yet. Is it best to wait to see accommodation before applying or should I go off the reviews and pictures I've seen online??

    I've been going off reviews from this website: https://www.studentcrowd.com/best-ha...sity-liverpool

    The one I want to apply to is Grenville Street, it's a bit more expensive but the reviews are pretty good, though I still think I'll have a look round just to be safe

    Hey Kelsey,

    Hope you don't mind me jumping in here - If you’re looking for stylish accommodation in Liverpool then take a look at Byrom Point. We’re holding OPEN DAYS on the 17th Feb so you are more than welcome to come take a look around and find out all about living with us.

    All rooms are ensuite, with comfy small double beds, storage space, and a shared kitchen and living area for each student apartment. Plus, we also have a limited number of studios available too! We also have a great Social Space with flat screen TV and pool table, a quiet study space, onsite gym as well a great outdoor space in our courtyard. Our location is perfect too – the main campuses at Byrom Street, plus the town centre are all just a short walk away.

    Check out our
    www.facebook.com/Liverpool/ByromPoint page to see the latest events with our current students #ByromPoint #Liverpool

    Thanks, Eva @FreshByromPoint

    Hi,

    If I were you, Id just book FAST. Two of the best places are already full and lots of them barely have any rooms left too. Accomodation is really important to me so if I were youd, Id try and quickly book it before the good places are gone. Theres SO many good reviews out there to help you out, the websites for each accommodation provide loads of deals too.

    Ive been in quite a few of them myself so if you need some help or advice, just let me know

    Hi hun,
    Every accommodation is good for socialising, meeting new people and having parties. There are a lot of students from n.ireland too and again, they pretty much live in all the different halls too so theyre probably not the best factors to narrow down accommodation choices. What else are you looking for? Do you want a gym for example? Do you want to be close to your campus? What budget are you looking at?

    Hi!

    Replying to the thread starter, travelling to see accommodation is not necessary.

    Personally in first year I lived in Grand Central and the photos matched the room well, and there were no problems. Most people I know didn't do any prior viewings. I would recommend viewings if you are living in accommodation which isn't a well established company, or isn't halls, but I would try not to worry too much. Most companies are very friendly and willing to make accommodations if you aren't completely happy.

    Grand Central is well known as a party accommodation if anybody is especially into that. However, you can't bet on how your housemates will be. I've lived with people who party five times a week, and those that you hardly see and leave plenty of passive aggressive notes. The key is just to have fun, say hello and you'll make friends and have a great time wherever you live!
