"The location is brilliant as all shops are within a short walking distance. The accommodation is lovely and very home like, as well as being sociable with different events for us to mingle. The campus and facilities are both excellent with lecture halls being a comfortable environment to learn in."
"It's a very vibrant city with a great nightlife."
"Our campus is in a great location and the facilities are above average. The accommodation is mixed as some is very nice while some is not."
"It's in the city centre, which is great. The guild is also a useful building to socialise in or hang around in."
"Since you are in the city centre, you can do whatever you want and there are lots of things to do in Liverpool. My first year was in Carnatic, an accommodation owned by the university, which was decent but I think it can be improved a little. As for the facilities, I think that there is a need for new and more modern computer labs."
"Buses are available as public transport in Liverpool and can be used to get you around the city to any place. The university's library is outstanding and contains lots of space for quiet and group study. It also contains many resources, though more books should be provided as they tend to run out fast."
"The campus is conveniently placed close to local transport links and the town centre, which is handy for a commuter like myself. I also like how the university is very self-contained."
"My halls of residence were a good place to live with a bus that ran to campus. The facilities are good, the guild has been refurbished and there is an off-campus sports field with easy access."
"The location is fantastic. The university is a very short walk to the city centre and buses are very frequent. Most of the halls of residence are very near the university, if not on campus, and the popular student living road of Smithdown is within a good walking distance of 20 or 30 minutes. The campus is a good size and easy to walk around within the university to get to your next lecture. Lime Street Station is very near, as is the motorway for easy access to other cities. The campus is clean and buildings are signposted around campus. Student accommodation is constantly improving with things like the recent development of Crown, Vine Court is quite new as well. The two libraries are very good and have a good atmosphere, having different sections for different noise levels."
"It's right in the city so you have access to any shop you can think of. We have two libraries, one for each side of the campus. Student accommodation is mostly right on campus but is still expensive."
"Great city, the campus is always lively with good facilities. Accommodation in Greenbank is old but with lots of new developments."
"Student accommodation is getting better with new halls being built. Campus is good and in a great location close to the city."
"The campus is based in the city but can feel like it has the good parts of a campus uni too. The best accommodations are on campus and rather new so they're of high quality and have been compared to hotel standards. The buildings for the dental and medical schools are the prime focus, it's therefore assumed to have the best facilities. Other course buildings are still good but aren't as specialised."
"It's a vibrant city with a great nightlife. Student accommodation was new and really nice but very expensive and, as I came in through clearing, there were no more affordable options left."
"The city is amazing and the campus is small but also full of life. Facilities are good, especially the size of the library and the closeness of the gym. Student accommodation is nice and new."
"The location is excellent, it's right by the city centre. Because it's an open campus, everything is in one place but not isolated from the city."
