Transfer after first year housingWatch
The student accommodation offered by Liverpool is for first years only, so you'd have 2 options - either look at private accommodation such as Student Roost (which was offered as university approved for the first time this year) which are similar styles to university accommodation, or look for a houseshare. I'd personally go for a houseshare as it's so much cheaper! Smithdown and Kensington are the two main areas in which second and third years usually live. Liverpool Student Homes is a good place to start looking as it's the official site for all the Liverpool unis and only includes accredited landlords, so you're less likely to be ripped off. It also has message boards with people posting asking for spare rooms or advertising for a flatmate, so it gives you a chance of being able to choose your housemates.
More generally, spareroom.com is pretty decent for finding accommodation. I found my second and third year house at Liv on the LSH website and my Masters house in Newcastle on spareroom
It'll be nice to meet new people
