Your campus

A university of the city

We have two campuses and 30 buildings. We also have big plans for the future.

We’re very proud of our campuses. Not only because they provide a modern and inspiring learning space for all our students but also because they’re a place people really want to be.

Our campuses are a bustling hive of activity. People will be studying, chatting over a coffee, relaxing with friends or taking part in one of our events. You’ll see friendly debates between academics, people talking to our student reps, and study groups working on joint projects.

We have impressive plans for our campuses - plans that will benefit our students and staff, as well as people living, working or visiting Liverpool. It’s an exciting time.

Visit our page on Accessibility around LJMU to discover how we ensure equal access for every visitor.

Copperas Hill

Located between our two campuses, Copperas Hill is home to our flagship Student Life Building and Sports Building. Here, you’ll find a wide range of student services, from wellbeing to careers advice, along with the Students’ Union, JMSU. You can also make use of our state-of-the-art gym and sports facilities.

This three-and-a-half acre site in the heart of Liverpool was a disused former Royal Mail site, until LJMU built on it and developed it into fantastic student facilities.

The Students’ Union’s main base is at the Student Life Building at Copperas Hill and you’ll find their reception, Advice Centre and staff offices here. You can also find the Students’ Union in the social spaces at Byrom Street, Tithebarn Street, John Lennon Art and Design Building and Redmonds Building.
