Liverpool Student Homes
If it’s private accommodation you’re looking for, LSH are there every step of the way. In Liverpool there’s a surplus of private student accommodation which means there’s plenty for you to choose from and you can take your time looking. It’s a myth that all the best accommodation gets snapped up early and you can certainly hold off your property search until later in the academic year, if that’s what you would prefer to do. As your only official University service for private accommodation, LSH advertise the largest selection of private student accommodation in Liverpool, including shared houses of all sizes, flats, private halls, studios and individual rooms in properties. LSH have an accreditation scheme in place, and all landlords/agents who wish to advertise must ensure that accommodation meets the quality and safety criteria in the LSH Standards.  

They also host find a housemate meet-ups and housing fairs, so make sure to follow them on social media for details.

 

Housing Rights Advice

LSH offer free confidential housing rights advice, and your property doesn’t need to be LSH registered to access this service. They can advise on issues including disrepair, deposits, harassment, tenancy agreements and more.

You can contact the LSH Housing Advisor, Tom Chew, on 07970 247209 or advice2u@liverpool.ac.uk. Tom is usually available for drop in consultations on campus on Wednesdays and Thursdays during term time between 9:30am-12:30pm, with afternoon drop-ins from 1:30pm-4:30pm. You are advised to call Tom to check which part of campus he will be based in. All advice given is free and confidential.

Community Living 
The term ‘students’ carries with it an array of stereotypes, a major one being that all students are noisy residents - but we know that isn’t true! When you move to Liverpool, you move into a strong and proud community that’s full of diverse individuals, from the elderly to families. 

Be a boss part of your community by:

  • Making sure all noise (parties, films, talking, singing etc.) is turned right down at 11pm. Not only is this just part of being a great neighbour, the Police and Liverpool City Council Noise teams can actually be called upon for noise complaints from this hour onwards – it can even lead to a disciplinary within uni.
  • Get to know your neighbours. That way you can look out for each other, and saying sorry if something happens can go a long, long way.
  • Don't litter. You've been told this from day one, but living in student accommodation means more rubbish that sometimes is hard to keep on top of. Put the right bins out on time, and keep the front of your house/flat tidy too!

 

Safety 
Unfortunately, students are targets for burglaries due to the large quantity of tenants occupying a single house. However, you can combat burglary by following these simple anti-burglary tips

With multiple occupancy student houses, it’s so important to ensure your home is fire safe. Follow these tips to ensure you keep you and your housemates safe.
