Postgraduate and mature students

Find the best place to live and study

As a new postgraduate or mature undergraduate student you have a great range of accommodation options available to you while studying at LJMU.

Each year the university sets aside a number of full flats for new postgraduate or mature undergraduate students in several of the halls offered to new students. Students who choose one of these flats will therefore not have to share a living space with new undergraduates who are coming to university directly from school or college. In this context ‘mature' means students who are at least 21 years old when they first enrol at the university.

All postgraduate students are given a longer tenancy of 50 or 51 weeks as a default. Mature undergraduate students are given a 42 week tenancy as a default. Mature undergraduate students can also request a longer tenancy (50 or 51 weeks) if they wish.

If you prefer not to share your accommodation with new undergraduate students and do not want to live in any of the options listed above you should contact Liverpool Student Homes, which is owned by the three universities in Liverpool and maintains official listings of good quality private houses and flats.

International postgraduate applicants should also read our page for international students, which includes information regarding guarantors.
