Support over the spring break and what to do in Liverpool

For most of our students following the standard academic calendar, the spring break runs from 9 to 24 April

Whether you are heading home or staying around Liverpool, here is some advice on where to go, what to do if you need help and support, and those all-important Library opening times. 

If you are heading back home over the spring break and leaving your student accommodation: 

  • Make sure that all external windows and doors are locked 

  • Keep personal/expensive possessions out of view or keep the curtains shut 

  • Make sure to turn off electric items and take that rubbish bag out – you will thank yourself in two weeks' time! 

If you are staying in the city, there is lots to do over the break: 

  • Taste Ramadan, Friday 8 April: enjoy a free, public gathering called Taste Ramadan at the Pierhead on Liverpool waterfront to celebrate diversity in the city 
  • Visit Liverpool has some great ideas of what to do in the city centre and surrounding area over Easter as well as events going on across the city


Whilst it is important to take a well-earned rest over the spring break, we know many students will be wanting to get some study time in ahead of April/May exams.  

Our Student Life Building will be open 24/7 over the break with our Aldham and Avril Robarts Libraries open until 11pm on weekdays and 8pm on weekends (and bank holidays).

You can see all Library opening times here. 

Our Academic Skills Tutors have also put together resources to support you with revision and exam skills. Find out more here. 

Student Advice and Wellbeing – Help and Support 

Our Student Advice and Wellbeing Services are available throughout the spring break.  

Visit LJMU Student Support web pages for health and wellbeing, counselling services, money advice and more.  

Security Services 

University security continues to operate throughout the break.  

If you are on campus and encounter any security issues, then contact the Security Emergency line on:  

0151 231 2222. The number is also on the back of your student ID card. 

The phone line is staffed 24/7 and patrolling security staff are available to provide a response 

Extenuating Circumstances 

Remember if you cannot attend an exam, or submit an assignment, due to illness or personal circumstances, you need to complete the online form.  

Go to the 'Personal Circumstances' option on the left panel and select the 'Extension' option. Please also provide supporting evidence alongside your extension/exam deferral request, which could be in the form of a medical note or correspondence email from LJMU support services, depending on the nature of your extension request. You can also contact the Academic Registry Helpdesk

We wish all our students a wonderful spring break and look forward to welcoming you back in two weeks time.
