A new home in a new country
Every year students from around the world find a welcoming home at LJMU
Exchange students on a variety of programmes come to study at LJMU and have the same wide range of accommodation options as UK students.
Full year exchange students
If you’re an exchange student and you intend to come to LJMU for the whole academic year you can search for accommodation and request rooms using the same process as other students.
Alternatively if you would prefer to live in private accommodation you can find out more about houses and flats from Liverpool Student Homes, the official Liverpool universities private accommodation service.
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 the relevant section of the FAQ pages.
Single semester exchange students
If you are an exchange student intending to come to LJMU for one semester only, you are not eligible to request accommodation using the normal process.
Please see the information about the available single semester accommodation for the forthcoming year.
This accommodation is also available to any current LJMU students who intend to study abroad and therefore only require accommodation for one semester.
