Nursing and healthcare students

Accommodation that suits your timetable

Helping you concentrate on your studies

Students on healthcare courses can experience difficulties when sharing flats with students on non-healthcare courses because of their differing timetable, workloads and shift patterns. We want your accommodation to be the perfect place for you to live and rest to enable you to concentrate on your studies to the best of your ability. Therefore we recommend that new healthcare students live in dedicated flats within Marybone 3 or Liberty Atlantic Point (LAP).

​Search for accommodation

This recommendation applies to new students on all branches of Nursing (Adult, Child and Mental Health) plus Midwifery and also Paramedic Practice. The main advantages to living in Marybone 3 or in AP are as follows:

  • All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and small double beds
  • The bedrooms are priced at £121.50 per week (Marybone 3) or £112.50 (AP) in 2020/21 which make them some of the cheapest en-suite bedrooms available to new LJMU students
  • They are two of the closest accommodation options to the Tithebarn Street Building and the adjacent Library
  • You will only share your flat with students on similar courses
  • You can extend your tenancy and stay on past the normal end of the tenancy period if you need to*

*New LJMU students are always given a standard 42 week tenancy as a default. However it is possible to switch to an all year round tenancy any point until the end of February in the first year. In Marybone 3 the rent will be adjusted if this happens so that students pay the 50 week rate for their entire tenancy period. The weekly rent in AP is the same for both the 42 week and all year round tenancies and therefore no adjustment is required.

There are also a limited number of flats available in Marybone 1 for healthcare students. These typically have six bedrooms and two bathrooms each, which is reflected in a weekly rent of £89.00 per week in 2020/21. All bedrooms in Marybone 1 have small double beds.

These flats are reserved for healthcare students only but because the vast majority of Marybone 1 residents are not studying on healthcare courses, it is possible that residents of these flats will experience more noise problems than those living in Marybone 3 or AP.

There is no parking at Marybone and therefore Paramedic students who need to bring their car to LJMU can opt to live in a dedicated healthcare flat in AP instead. A parking space at AP will cost £15 per week in 2020/21.

Please note that although students are free to choose where to live, no guarantee can be made about sharing a flat with students on similar courses at any other location. Furthermore it will not be possible to move into Marybone 3 or AP after the start of the academic year, should any problems emerge in any other accommodation.
