How to book

If you request accommodation when you apply for the International Study Centre, the Central Student Support team will contact you with the latest information on available accommodation and fees.

Our Accommodation Commitment 

To provide assurance of accommodation availability, we have introduced an Accommodation Commitment.  So students can be sure of getting a room offer.

To be eligible for our Accommodation Commitment and secure a formal room offer, students need to complete the following simple steps:

Return your Acceptance Form to confirm your study offer, and make applicable payments, by 28th July 2023 (5pm UK time) to be eligible for a room offer and receive personalised instructions on how to apply.

You will then need to apply for their accommodation by 2nd of August 2023 (5pm UK time) using the instructions and process provided for their Centre. Students will then receive a formal room offer.

Once you have your room offer, you need to complete the application process within the specific time frames provided in order to secure your room.

We have good availability of accommodation for students starting programmes in September and October 2023. So if you miss these deadlines, accommodation may still be available, but please note it will be on a first-come-first served basis.

The Accommodation Commitment applies to courses starting in September and October 2023 only. Rooms are generally allocated on a first come first served basis however specific groups may be prioritised where appropriate, such as students with specific medical conditions or those aged under 18. Students under 18 years of age may be limited to specific accommodation types.

Arranging your own accommodation privately

If you are booking your own accommodation privately it is important that you let us know where you are staying and that you are staying less than 60 minutes away from LJMU ISC.

Look out for fraud

Scammers may specifically target international students so it is important to be able to recognise common signs of fraudulent activity and know what to do if you come across it. Let us know at if you have any concerns about fraudulent activity when dealing with a private accommodation provider so that we can help to protect you and other international students in case they are targeted in the same way.

Arrange your room

We recommend contacting the student support team before sourcing your accommodation, please contact LJMU ISC Central Student Support Team to enquire about our currently available accommodation options.
