Support for care experienced and estranged students

We’re here to help you into your accommodation

We want all students to feel at home in any accommodation at LJMU and we are committed to working with our accommodation partners to ensure our halls are accessible to everyone.

We understand that if you are a Care Leaver or an Estranged student, you may require some additional assistance when booking your student accommodation – such as organising a guarantor.

With this in mind, we invite you to email us at and we can then set up the support needed.
