For students coming for one semester only, the University is proud to offer accommodation in the Study Abroad Village, which consists of Melville Grove and Tudor Close. This are apartment-style, on-campus, self-catered accommodation. Each student has their own bedroom with shared bathroom facilities. Where demand exceeds supply, preference is given to students coming from International Study Abroad Partner Universities.

We encourage all students intending to live in private accommodation to arrive the week before classes begin to look for accommodation.

Program Reviews:
Spring 2016 Participant
Liverpool is a city filled with excitement, a rich football culture, and a bright social scene. The University of Liverpool is made up of students from all over the UK and international students from all over the world.

Chelsey Erica Omoerah, Spring 2018 Participant
Best dorm I've ever stayed in (tudor close)

Chelsey Erica Omoerah, Spring 2018 Participant
I met so many people from all over without even having to try

Get to know the other exchange students (not from America) and locals. I made so many friends who live in my host country or elsewhere around the world, so I know I have a couch to crash on if I go to Austria or Wales or Australia or Denmark or Greece. It's sad having international friends because you won't see them often, but it makes the planning of visits so much more fun.
