Liverpool Student Houses
Liverpool as a city offers many great areas that are perfect for student living – whether you want a laid back lifestyle, or you want to be right in the mix of it all.
Many students spend their first year in city centre halls and then continue to live in the city for the convenience. All amenities are close by and travel is extremely easy, with access to shops, bars, supermarkets and the universities all within walking distance.
The area of Toxeth boasts some of the finest Georgian houses in the city and the Catherine Street/Falkner Street area also remains popular with students wishing to live in a traditional house share within close proximity to the city centre universities.
Not too far removed from the centre is Kensington, with a large majority of the accommodation being traditional terraced houses and flats with mixed dwellings of local residents and students. The area is popular with student wanting the buzz of the city centre without the high city centre prices.
Smithdown Road and the surrounding areas boast the largest student population in Liverpool and for a good reason. The area has a diverse range of shops, bars, pubs and supermarkets so no basic need is ever far away, and buses run to the city centre every five minutes throughout the day and night. There is a large range of accommodation for students, characterised mainly by Victorian terrace properties.
Comparatively, an area that’s getting more popular with students every year, Kensington Fields is the largest Victorian housing estate outside London and has recently been designated as a Conservation Area. It is within 10 minutes’ walk of city centre University sites, but without the premium rents of city accommodation.
Close to Sefton Park and the lively Lark Lane area, Aigburth is a blossoming student area which is growing quickly due to its cosmopolitan lifestyle. Buses to the city run every 5 minutes. While its popularity is growing, the area still remains relatively low rent, especially in comparison to Liverpool centre.
