Living in harmony within your community is an important part of your housing journey after halls. In Liverpool we have a number of areas where students will live within an established community, alongside long-term residents. Building and maintaining a strong cohesive link between students moving into a local community continues to be a priority for our stakeholder universities, so a new role has been created within LSH.




LSH has a new Off-Campus Student Support Co-Ordinator, who is responsible for developing clear strategies to enhance the relationships between students and the local community, working across a multi-agency platform including students' unions, universities, local resident groups and councillors. The co-ordinator is a point of contact for emerging issues that arise within the community and works holistically to foster greater community cohesion, through maintaining an open dialogue with stakeholder groups.


The introduction of this post opens up a new and exciting chapter that will continue to explore and build on opportunities for wider engagement and creative initiatives, which will be publicised on this page.




When you move into a new home, there are lots of things to think about and remember to do, including being a considerate neighbour and getting along with those living around you. Take a look at this video for tips on joining a community.






We want all students to be happy in their choice of private accommodation and feel welcomed in their local community. We produce a handy Community Guide annually in collaboration with Liverpool Guild, JMSU and HopeSU, which gives lots of information about the local area, settling in and keeping safe.


This year, our guide also incorporates key messages, guidelines and precautions relating to COVID, including how to protect your household and community.


Please find the most recent community guide below that you can click to view full screen
