Finding Accommodation with Liverpool Student Homes
Liverpool Student Homes (LSH) is a service owned and managed by University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool Hope University, LIPA, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and supported by their respective student unions.
LSTM recommends that you use LSH to find your accommodation as they only advertise accredited student properties and can help you to find good quality accommodation for the time that you will be studying. They offer short-term accommodation as well as longer length tenancies.
LSH are there to guide you as a student support service and can help if you run into problems while you are renting privately in Liverpool. LSH Housing Advisors can give guidance on disputes with landlords, deposits, contracts, property disrepair and more.
If you are offered a tenancy agreement and you would like it checking before you sign it or there’s something detailed that you don’t understand, you can go to LSH and they will check it over and explain the terms.
LSH always recommends that you go to view properties before signing a contract or paying any money. This is to ensure that you are completely happy with the accommodation before you sign any legally binding documents.
If you are an international student you can book into a hotel for the first couple of days for when you arrive in Liverpool, this gives you time to go to view properties before making a final decision for your on-going accommodation.
For Short-Term accommodation, you can also contact the Student Experience Officer on SAW@lstmed.ac.uk for a list of registered landlords and Halls of Residence who offer Short-Term accommodation to LSTM students.
