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 strongly recommend that new healthcare students live in dedicated flats within Marybone, Glassworks or Atlantic Point (AP). This recommendation applies to new students on all branches of Nursing (Adult, Child and Mental Health) plus Midwifery and Paramedic Science. It also applies to both the September and January intakes.

The main advantages to living in dedicated flats in these Halls are as follows:

  • All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms (except Marybone 1) and small double beds
  • They are among the closest accommodation options to the Tithebarn Street Building and the adjacent Library
  • You will only share your flat with students on similar courses

Nursing and Midwifery students receive an annual tenancy by default to reflect that teaching on these courses is based on the calendar year and not the standard academic year.  Paramedic Science students receive a standard 42 week tenancy by default to reflect that teaching follows the standard academic year - but they can request an annual tenancy if they wish.

There are 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 £79.99 per week in 2021/22. All bedrooms in Marybone 1 have small double beds and sinks in the rooms.

There is no parking at Marybone or Glassworks and therefore Paramedic Science students who need to bring their car should chose AP instead. A parking space at AP will cost £15 per week in 2021/22.

Please note that although healthcare 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 the Halls listed above after the start of the academic year, should any problems emerge.  LJMU reserves the right to refuse a request from a new healthcare student to live in a hall that it believes to be unsuitable. For academic year 2021/22 this list of unsuitable halls will include Horizon Heights, Grand Central and St Luke’s View.
