Social media

You’re starting at LJMU, congratulations! During your time here you’re likely to be sharing your University experience on social media - here are some useful things to remember.

Social media has transformed the way we chat, find out information and share what’s happening, and it can be a great tool to keep in touch. It’s always handy to keep in mind how you present yourself online, just as you would in the real world.

University policies

We want you to have an amazing time at LJMU and using social media sensibly is part of making your experience as enjoyable as possible. 

The University expects its students to follow the guidelines set in the Student Social Networking Statement and Student Code of Behaviour and Disciplinary Procedures concerning their use of social media and IT facilities: infringement of these guidelines is taken very seriously by Student Governance and may result in disciplinary action.

Keep in touch

LJMU has a wide presence on social media and following us is a quick and easy way to see what's happening around the University and get you queries answered during your time here.

Follow the main University accounts on Twitter @LJMU and with all the essential information for students Snapchat @ljmuni, Facebook and LinkedIn, plus we also post on YouTube and Instagram

As you start your studies at LJMU you may find some Twitter accounts particularly useful to follow:

  • Queries about finance, health or study support? Or just need to chat to someone? Get in touch with Student Advice and Wellbeing @LJMUSAW

  • The three University libraries are much more than places to find (over half a million!) books and journals – they're hubs offering a huge range of student services: chat to them on @LJMULibrary

  • Throughout your time at LJMU the Careers Centre @LJMUcareers offer tailor-made careers advice and support, plus you can get on-campus advice from your three Careers Zone hubs

Many courses, schools and departments have their own dedicated accounts and pages too.

There are tons of sports teams and societies affiliated to Liverpool Students’ Union on social media too, which you can find out about from the Students' Union website or at the Freshers' Fairs.

Along with enhancing your time at LJMU, social media can be a great tool for improving your employability. Our Careers Team offers workshops about online reputation management and creating a professional LinkedIn profile.
