Grand Central   Skelhorne Street, Liverpool L3 5GA

Available to book from 3 February 2020, Grand Central is a large and lively complex of over 1,000 bedrooms in total, situated adjacent to Lime Street Station in the very heart of the city. It is a great choice for new students based at either of LJMU's city-centre campuses and is also popular with students based at the IM Marsh Campus because of the proximity to public transport links to that campus. Because of the size and location of Grand Central, it tends to be chosen by new students who are coming to LJMU directly from school and college and hence very few older or postgraduate students choose to live there each year. The site has a gym which is available to all residents for a one-off payment of £10 for the year. There are also a limited number of self-contained studios at Grand Central.
