The Arch is the one of the newer accommodation sites available to LJMU students, having opened in September 2014. It is situated next to the Chinese Arch and close to the Liverpool One shopping and leisure development. Because of the location it is suitable for students based at either of LJMU's two city-centre campuses. It is also recommended for students based at the IM Marsh Campus because it is close to the main bus route (number 82) to that campus. The Arch features high quality WiFi provision throughout the site and has great social space including a communal lounge and games room.

The Arch offers en-suite bedrooms of three different sizes – Standard, Premium and Deluxe – as well as a limited number of self-contained Studios. Standard and Premium bedrooms feature private en-suite bathrooms and 3/4-sized (small double) beds. Deluxe bedrooms are larger and feature a full-sized double bed and an en-suite bathroom with bath and shower above, unusual for student accommodation in Liverpool. Studio apartments include a full-sized double bed, personal living space as well as a fitted kitchen and a private en-suite shower room.
