I don't go there but my friend does and I've visited her twice, she's in atlantic point aswell and it is really nice, I've not looked at any other accomodation, but if I was applying there it would definately be my first choice.

Depends where you're studying as different accom is near different buildings. If you're Mount Pleasant based Apollo Court is nice and one of the cheapest, as is Cambridge Court.

I'm doing Business Studies, which would be in John Foster building (correct me if i'm wrong)? What are the more local choices to the building? :smile:

John Foster is on the Mount Pleasant campus I think.

Yes you're John Foster whish is in Mount Pleasant. So Apollo Court would be good for you, or Cambridge Court. They're you're nicest cheap en-suite options. Cedar House and Lennon Studios are right by Cambridge Court too but are dearer. Grand Central is right by Lime Street station but is a lot dearer also.

If your gonna be studying a science/sport/animal course then you will probably be based at Byrom street campus, in which case i would advice Atlantic Point, which is really nice, big and clean but there is also Victoria Halls which is directly across from the library. If your gonna be based at the main uni campus (Mt Pleasant) I would suggest Apollo court which has its own common room on the bottom floor. However, i think nearly all the LJMU accomodation is really nice.

I live in Atlantic Point now and tbh, the only place I would move to is Vicky halls if I did move halls.

There is a lot of noise sometimes at night and you can hear everyones music...

Im not bothered though because I pump it out sometimes:biggrin:

But yeh Atlantic Point is good accommodation for first years...

Not a JMU student, but we share the private halls in the city centre. So I may be able to help.

Grand Central is nice, but there is a risk that you'll have the train departure announcements every 5 or so minutes from about 0500 until 2300 :P. But it depends which rooms your in. Also, maybe not a huge issue, but it's an uphill walk to the John Foster building (which as discussed is up Mt Pleasent near the University).

The student village (up near JMU students union and the Font bar) is quite nice (and being a student village is gonna be quite lively), but fills up very quickly, as there's no priority to JMU (so University of Liverpool, JMU, LIPA and the Liverpool Community College are on equal footing)

Liberty Park is another option, I absolutely hated it (but that was more due to my flatmates), but alot of people who were there last year are still there (which says something), most flats are JMU.

Prospect Point is also viable (near the hospital), though it's a bit more of a walk to the Foster building, but there's plenty of takeaways there etc. But it gives priority to the University of Liverpool's faculty of medicine students.

Another one I dont really know much about is North Western Halls, it's near Lime Street, but away from the open end (so you dont get the announcements)

The Student village and Grand Central are good, but expensive (I think GC was verging on £80 pw).

Liberty Park is alright, just a bit old fashioned compared to the other Liberty Properties.

The best thing to do is once you've got a place confirmed, head up to Lpool and have a look around the accomodation. A good website to look at is:

North Western is not nice. It's one of the only halls without en-suite bathrooms, it's very cheap yeah but you see why. It's not to any of the other JMU halls standards and it's literally attached to Lime Street Station so you WILL hear all the noise from the station.
Grand Central is way more than £80 p/w now, it's bordering on £100...if not more.
Your best bet is the student village I think.

And if you're doing English at JMU you'll be studying in the Dean Walters building I'd have thought...

I stand corrected regarding Grand Central (Im sure it was around £80p/w when I was looking at it).

Didnt realise NW Halls was that bad either, but yeah the student village is a good place (and is basically the kinda place you can roll out of bed and go to uni)

The price of all jmu accomadation has gone up quite a bit its gone from about £73 to £85 for atlantic point (not sure if that is the correct amount but about right). Although over the year it is one of the cheaper ones to live in as it has a shorter contract.
