Why choose Liberty Living?
A real student experience!
Being a student in the UK is exciting – you won’t just build on your academic knowledge, you’ll build a social network and a community around you, too. There are plenty of opportunities to learn both inside and out of the classroom from people whose culture and life experiences have been very different from your own. It’s an exciting time; there’s always so much going on and we recommend throwing yourself in at the deep end. Don’t worry; we don’t literally want you to jump into a swimming pool – that’s just a British phrase which means that you should get stuck in with anything and everything that you can!
Student living in the UK is generally renowned for being fun and exciting, and our student accommodation allows you to experience this fully for yourself. There will be plenty of people for you to meet, hang out and socialise with right here in your new home. Some of those other residents will be UK students, and others will be international students like you, from all over the world.
Depending on your course, you might not have many contact hours in your University. This is quite normal, and allows for independent study. All of our bedrooms are equipped with an area for you to work from, including a desk and a chair.
No matter what you’re interested in, there will be societies you can join at University, or events taking place right here in your Liberty Living accommodation. Plus, there will always be an excuse to do something with your flatmates, whether it’s cooking, playing sport, partying or anything else.
I came here from Spain to do a 3 month placement in Bristol. It’s amazing here - such a beautiful building. When I saw it on the website I couldn’t believe it would be so good, but it is even better in real life!
4th year student
I studied in China for 4 years before coming to Cardiff to study my masters. Cardiff is a fun City and everyone is really friendly. I like the staff and the other students very much.
4th year student
I came here from Delhi 3 years ago, it’s been really easy to make friends and everyone has made me feel so welcome!
1st year student
I really enjoy living here. I feel safe and if I have a problem within my flat, it is dealt with efficiently. I’m from Malaysia and studying in Coventry – it is a great city and everyone is very friendly. There are lots of shops and the market is close by.
2nd year student
I’m an international student from Russia. One of the main reasons why I chose Liberty Hall is its location, which is just a 3 minute walk from the campus. This is my first year in London and I find it amazing.
1st year student
I’m from Thailand and studying Fashion marketing. Everyone was so welcoming when I first moved here; it felt like home almost straight away.
4th year student
I come from a family of engineers. I think that they are quite proud that I am going to be an Architect. My dream is to design the Cairo Opera House in my home country of Egypt.

Meet our team
When you first move to a new country, it’s okay to feel a bit lonely or even scared. It can really help to have people looking out for you with your best interests at heart – that’s where our amazing Residence Teams come in!
Sure, they’re no replacement for your family, but having people you trust looking out for you can really help to ease the burden of whatever it is you might be feeling when you first get here. It’s perfectly normal to experience homesickness, and it’s quite common to notice a bit of a culture shock as well.
Your Residence Team will be happy to help you with all aspects of settling in and student life in general. They’re great to lean on in a crisis or even just to grab a quick coffee with if you fancy a chat. Our Residence Teams will even make your life easier by signing for your mail (all those treats from home!) whilst you’re out.
On top of the care and support you’ll receive emotionally, the team are brilliant behind the scenes as well; making sure your whole student experience goes as smoothly as possible.
Safety & security
Keeping you safe
We appreciate that you might have one or two worries about your safety and security once you move to the UK. If you’re coming from far, far away, you might not know what to expect. It can be scary because you don’t know the area, you don’t know our standards, and you don’t know who to trust.
When you stay with Liberty Living, we aim to make you feel right at home, and that’s why your safety is our priority. For you to settle in, we recognise that you have to feel secure and we have a range of things in place to give you complete peace of mind.
We have CCTV across all of our residences for your protection, and in most cases we even have actual teams patrolling to make sure everything is as it should be. If you’re worried about anything, you can have a chat to the security teams or give their emergency number a call.
Our residences are secure by design as well. You’re only able to enter if you live with us, thanks to our key fob entry system. Your individual room itself can only be accessed with a key or fob, and aside from the Residence Team, you’ll be the only one who can ever gain entry.
We’ve been looking out for international students for many years and so we’ve got loads of experience under our belt. We want you to feel at home, and so we do everything in our power to achieve this.
We welcome group bookings
At Liberty Living, we hope you make as many friends here in the UK as possible – but sometimes it makes things that bit easier if you live with someone you already know.
If you happen to know fellow students living in the UK already or you have friends back home that you want to share with, we can make it happen. If you don’t want to be separated, that’s no problem with us! Where there’s availability we can even offer you shared rooms, so if you’ve got a partner or friend in mind, living with them won’t be an issue either – in our residences that have double rooms or studios.
Whether you’ve stayed with us before or it’s your very first time living with us, we’ll welcome you (or welcome you back!) with open arms.
There are even rewards involved! If you book in a group of four or more people, we’ll give you a £100* shopping voucher for a supermarket of your choice. Eating is a very social activity in the UK, so it’s a great start to your next chapter of student life.
Of course, this is all optional and you should do whatever makes you feel most comfortable. However, if you do have a group of two or more of you in mind, it’s very easy to make a booking together, so follow the link to find out more about group bookings.
*Shopping voucher offer of £100 differs in some residences and is only available at selected residences.
We have great relationships with UK universities
We partner with the very best higher education institutions because our customers do, too. Our student accommodation is endorsed by some of the UK’s leading universities and we work in partnership with many of these to make sure you’ve somewhere safe, clean and fun to come home to at the end of a hard day’s work.
We’re honestly not trying to brag, but here goes. We don’t just think we’re amazing – we know we are, so you’re in good hands. We’ve won plenty of awards, and to be honest, we’re not complaining if we have to get a bigger cabinet to stock them in (and we can’t turn down a glitzy ceremony, either). Awards are an internationally recognised symbol for success. From ‘Best Customer Service’ to ‘Best Private Hall Provider’, we have our fair share to shine already, so take a look below…
