Find out more about living in Liverpool

Welcome to your new home in a vibrant city

Liverpool is one of the most affordable, culturally innovative and safe student cities in the UK.

Living with other students is a great way to make friends and settle into university life. We understand that choosing your student accommodation is a big decision, especially when you live on the other side of the world. But with our help, you can easily find the right home.

The International Study Centre works with Student Roost, a leading student accommodation provider in UK. Through this partnership, our students will receive an option to choose the right accommodation from this market leader. We will reserve rooms on your behalf, and then you can confirm the room directly with the landlord at their market rate.
