I'm going to firm Liverpool and I've been looking at the accommodation. I was just wondering if anybody in 2nd/3rd year has any advice. I like the look of Greenbank student village for it's gym and social atmosphere but I wasn't sure if a place on campus like Crown place might be better. Where did you stay in first year and did you like it?

Hi there, I graduated last year and between my friends and I, I know a little about all of the halls (although I haven't actually visited Greenbank since it was refurbished - I was in it the year before they did it up). What would you like to know about the halls?

Hello,

I'm a current third year at the University and I stayed at Greenbank in my first year just after it had been refurbished. From my experience Greenbank was actually a really nice place to live - it is the newest halls the University owns and is really modern. The social atmosphere was quite good too - I think because most people end up getting the bus to Uni and into town on nights out so you naturally just get to know people through that. Personally I liked living off campus - it gave more of a separation between Uni and home. There's also a lot more green space around Greenbank with Greenbank Park and Sefton Park really close by which is nice if you need a break from work. Let me know if you have any more questions

Honestly, since Liverpool refurbished its halls, they are essentially all the same, but in different locations, except Melville. Melville is naturally more sociable as you have to share a bathroom, but you are mainly socialising within your house, as opposed to the other halls, where you will have a larger corridor of people to share with. The rest (Vine, Crown, Philharmonic and Greenbank) are identical save for location - obviously the studio flats are self-contained, but the en-suites in all of these are the same, so it really depends on who you are with as opposed to where you are. However, in my experience, almost everyone is willing to go out in the first few weeks. If you're into clubbing, Greenbank is a lot further from town than the rest, but on the bus or sharing a taxi means you'd probably only pay £2 each (for a taxi) or use your annual bus pass.
