However, for everyone else, there’s the option of paying in three instalments to make things easier.

If you’ve got some stashed away, that’s fine – we offer a 2% discount when you pay for the academic year upfront. However, for everyone else, there’s the option of paying in three instalments to make things easier. We’ve ever-so-thoughtfully planned these expected payment dates to coincide with the typical student loan payment schedule, but you can have a chat with us if this doesn’t quite match your student loan payment dates and we’ll see what we can do to help.

      At the point of booking, all we need is a £200 booking fee to secure your room, together with details of a Guarantor for all UK students plus those looking to pay their rent in instalments. Your first instalment of rent won’t be due until the first day of your contract.

      Extending your stay

      Can’t get enough of Liberty Living? We don’t blame you! But seriously, if you want to stay a little longer than you originally expected, have a chat with your Residence Team about how we can help. We offer summer bookings in all of our accommodation too so you can stick around a while longer to enjoy everything the city or town has to offer. Perhaps you’re staying for further study, or maybe you just want the opportunity to have some fun while you don’t have lectures – either way, we’d be happy to have you here providing we have the space.

      We also allow you to come back year after year with some great discounts when you rebook. Talk to us if you’re pretty sure you’re not ready to leave and we’ll give you all the information you need.

    Enhancing your Student Experience

    Our dedicated Student Experience programme has been created to ensure that every single one of you has the best stay possible when you live with us. Whether it is coming along to our social events and activities to meet new people, getting involved in fundraising and volunteering for some amazing charities, or popping along to drop in sessions to seek advice on finances, wellbeing and careers, we have something for you.

    We understand that University can sometimes be an overwhelming experience, but don’t worry our team are great at giving advice on and mediating in all kinds of welfare issues that you may experience, such as homesickness, difficulty in getting on with flatmates, noise complaints, relationship problems, partying too hard and having trouble with studies.

    Also, if you need more guidance, we have great relationships with our University partners and their support departments to help and guide you.

    The best choice for international students

    Coming to the UK to study from abroad? Welcome! We love catering to students from all over the world and learning a thing or two about their culture. Luckily, we’ve already got plenty of experience with this as we currently have around 4,500 international students staying with us, so you’re certainly not alone.

    When you stay with Liberty Living your safety is the most important thing to us. We understand that you’re a long way from home and you want to feel comfortable and secure at all times. We have amazing staff on hand 24 hours a day, from the Residence Team, right through to Security who’ll keep an eye out for you overnight as well as CCTV. Contents insurance covering your possessions is included as standard in your rent, so your stuff is protected, and any parcels you have delivered will be well looked after until you can come to collect them.

    Of course, we want you to have fun and make the most of your time here, too. You can always come to us with any problems,, or even just for a chat. A new country can be confusing, so we’ve got loads of tips for things to do, too – just ask! Many of our staff members are multilingual, so don’t be shy if English isn’t your first language; if we can’t immediately offer support in your native tongue, we’ll point you in the direction of someone who can. We’ll do our best to help you settle in and make friends, and we can point you in the right direction for any visa, welfare or University advice you may need.

    We can’t wait to meet you!
