Home to over 60,000 students from 100 different countries, Liverpool is one of the UK’s best loved student cities. A relatively low cost of living (particularly compared to London), an abundance of student accommodation, world leading arts and entertainment, an exciting nightlife and iconic architecture combine to make it a great place to live and study.
What makes Liverpool stand apart from other cities though is its people; friendly, kind and supportive, with an outrageously wicked sense of humour, we believe you will feel welcomed and accepted. A unique, passionate and independent city, Liverpool will get under your skin. We think you’ll be proud to call it home.
Accommodation At Lipa
As a student city Liverpool has plenty of competitively priced accommodation options, which is why LIPA has never needed to build its own halls of residence. After deciding where to study, choosing your new home from home will be one of the most important decisions you make – and we can guide you.
Nightlife In Liverpool
With over 250 city centre pubs, bars, music venues and clubs, a night out in Liverpool has reached near legendary status. In the Rough Guides’ ‘Make the Most of Your Time on Earth 2015’, Liverpool’s nightlife was No.3 in its list of ‘50 Things to Do Before You Die’ – ahead of visiting the Great Wall of China and the Taj Mahal.
Food and Drink
Liverpool’s restaurant and café scene has experienced a real renaissance over the last 10 years. The city has numerous small affordable independent eateries that reflect the cosmopolitan make-up of the population. It’s also home to much-loved big-name brands, while culinary heavyweights Gordon Ramsay, Marco Pierre White and Gino D’Acampo have all recently opened restaurants in Liverpool.
Arts In Liverpool
A former European Capital of Culture, England’s only UNESCO City of Music and home to more museums and art galleries than any other city outside London, Liverpool has a well earned gobal reputation as a cultural hub. It’s one of the reasons the city is regularly one of the UK’s top tourist destinations.
