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.

Program Reviews:
Chelsey Erica Omoerah, Spring 2018 Participant
Studying at the University of Liverpool changed how I see the world. If I could do it again I would, in a heartbeat. The town has a heart of its own and the people are so lovely. I can't wait to go back someday. If you have the opportunity to go here, take it!

Spring 2016 Participant
This was left entirely up to us and was not facilitated at all by the school, but the city was easily accessible so I took advantage of it all the time!

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

Testimonial:
Testimonial:
I was surprised how different England was to America. I originally picked it as a way to dip my toe into living internationally, since they speak english, I knew I wouldn't ever be too lost or confused. Things would surprise me everyday from the pub culture to the way people greet one another. I feel like I have a new appreciation for adventure that I NEVER had before.
