- Liberty Living
A great place to study
Liverpool has so much to offer, extending far beyond its success in the music and sporting worlds (thanks to The Beatles and Premier League football). Liverpool’s status as a major port over the years has led to incredible urbanisation and, more recently, regeneration of this famous city. From its status as the ‘World City of Pop’ to its titles of ‘Capital of Culture’ for 2008, this is a city which attracts millions of visitors every year.
Liverpool city is full of friendly locals, culture, history and most of all – fun! Easy to navigate and incredibly diverse, it’s also entirely compact.
Liverpool proudly boasts several higher education institutions, including the University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moore’s University, Liverpool Hope University and Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts. At Liberty Living, you will find a fantastic choice of student accommodation in Liverpool at Liberty Atlantic Point, Liberty Park and Liberty Prospect Point. There are more than 50,000 students from more than 100 different countries studying in the city. It’s fitting that Liverpool is symbolised by the legendary Liver Bird, as this really is a city where students can come and spread their wings.
Food and drink
Liverpool is a thriving hub of exciting places to eat and drink. Highlights include the delicious San Carlo, Gusto, Olive and Fazenda. Burger lovers will relish in trying the (now famous!) Almost Famous, whilst fried chicken fanatics can give Yard Bird a go.
Liverpool’s newest bid for a first Michelin Star for the city, The Art School, is surprisingly fairly priced and within a student’s budget!
If you’re looking for something different, don’t worry because you’ll find hundreds of other cafés, pubs, bars and restaurants serving a huge variety of cuisines from different counties, all just a short distance from our Liverpool student accommodation.
Sports and leisure
Be prepared for the fateful question as soon as you arrive in Liverpool – “are you a red or a blue?” Liverpool is famed for its spirited rivalry between the city’s two top football clubs, Liverpool FC (the reds) and Everton FC (the blues). Whilst living in Liverpool, it would be a fun idea to visit either of the two grounds, at Anfield and Goodison Park respectively.
If you fancy just a short trip across the water to nearby Hoylake, you can also check out the home of the Open Championship, The Royal Liverpool Golf Club.
Culture and music
Without a doubt, Liverpool would not be the city that it is today without The Beatles and it continues to be an important locale for national and international touring bands, thanks to its music venues including the O2 Academy, Echo Arena, Arts Club, The Shipping Forecast and Liverpool Guild of Students. Your student accommodation in Liverpool will place you right in the heart of the action, too.
If you prefer other types of entertainment, there are several theatres in the local area that you can visit. The Liverpool Empire Theatre is renowned for having some of the best live performances outside of London's West End, and many famous plays are put on here on a regular basis.
Liverpool is also home to the country’s oldest orchestra – the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra – and the largest collection of national museums and art galleries in the UK outside London. This rich culture makes Liverpool an ideal city for students, with historical landmarks and marvels just a short distance from our student accommodation.
No matter what you’re into, you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to entertainment. Liverpool has plenty of things to see and do both in the daytime and at night. Fancy a game of mini-golf, or a trip to the cinema? No problem, Liverpool has it all.
When the sun goes down, you can also try out an abundance of bars and clubs, and hopefully find your new favourites.
Concert Square is a lively student hotspot, whilst the Krazyhouse is ideal for those into something slightly alternative, but equally those who want a little bit of everything. The tequila bar next door, Ca’Va, is always popular with both students and locals alike, as is Heebie Jeebies and of course, Medication. You can also take in some of the city’s top urban DJs four nights a week at the Camel Club.
If you’re really trying to impress, Liverpool’s Albert Dock is the more upmarket side of town – just be prepared to flash your cash!
Situated on the North West coast, Liverpool great rail links. Liverpool Lime Street serves the national main line routes whilst Liverpool Central serves the local network, so it’s simple to get about by rail both locally and nationally.
Liverpool is also served along many National Express and Megabus routes, meaning that it’s always possible to make a quick trip home at weekends!
Buses serve the local area exceptionally well, with the timetable extending well into the evenings with discounted student fares available. Also, taxis throughout the city are renowned for being inexpensive, which means getting home to your Liverpool student accommodation from a night out can always be done safely.
International students and explorers can take advantage of Liverpool John Lennon Airport which is situated just outside the city centre, with flights to take you all over Europe.
Health and wellbeing
Liverpool’s universities offer welfare, financial and career advice to all their students which are available at various advice clinics across campus.
Liberty Living’s central locations ensure that you’re never too far away from any assistance you require during your time in our student accommodation.
Campus facilities aside, The Royal Liverpool University Hospital is absolutely fantastic, accessible to all, and easily found in the city centre close to the main campuses. Here you will find an A&E department, specialist services as well as a GUM clinic.
Liverpool has some excellent walk-in centres one which can be found on David Lewis Street, and the city also offers excellent sexual health and family planning services especially geared towards under 25s, such as the Brook Advisory Service.
In 2008, Liverpool’s city centre transformed entirely, thanks to the newly built Liverpool One shopping complex. With an impressive range of brand name stores to suit everyone, you’re bound to be covered for all of your fashion, music, beauty and other retail needs. It’s also home to a range of restaurants, bars and things to do, so no matter who you’re going with, you’ll never be bored.
When it comes to supermarkets and other essentials, the city centre is home to a huge amount of smaller Tesco, Co-operative and Sainsbury’s stores, as well as an Aldi for those who are a little more conscious about value. Just outside the city centre you’ll find a huge Asda superstore, which is easily accessible by bus or even in a shared taxi.
Whilst Liverpool and Manchester are seemingly in healthy competition, the neighbouring city also lies in the North West and can be visited by train in less than an hour. With an abundance of live music venues, clubs and shops, it’s the perfect place to go for a fun-filled day trip. Chester isn’t too far either – a city steeped in both history and culture, it’s an ideal place to take your parents when they come to visit.
Additionally, Liverpool isn’t too far at all from North Wales, which has some absolutely beautiful coastal spots. For example, Llandudno can be reached in around 2 hours via train, or just 1 hour 20 minutes if you're lucky enough to know somebody with a car. Why not make a weekend of it with some of your flatmates from your Liverpool student accommodation?
