Accommodation advice for exchange students
LJMU welcomes exchange students every year on a variety of programmes, including SOCRATES and ERASMUS.
Full year exchange students
Exchange students who intend to come to LJMU for the whole academic year may request accommodation using the same process as other students - see how to request accommodation.
Alternatively they may contact Liverpool Student Homes to enquire about availability in private houses and flats. Please note that non-UK students are usually required to pay for student accommodation in full and in advance of arriving in Liverpool unless they can provide details of a valid (UK resident) guarantor. For further information about guarantors, please see this section of the FAQ pages.
Single semester exchange students
Exchange students who intend to come to LJMU for one semester only are not eligible to request accommodation using the normal process and are advised to contact Liverpool Student Homes instead.
The availability of single semester accommodation is limited, especially during the first semester (September to December) but more rooms should be available for the second semester (January to June). Students considering attending LJMU on an exchange programme are advised to attend for the whole academic year or for the second semester if possible.
Update 9 July 2014: A limited number of rooms are now available for the first semester at Myrtle Court - see here for information. Enquiries about these rooms should be made direct to Unite and not to KLJMU.
