The rental prices for student accommodation vary according to the location, type of property, facilities and the standard of property. If you are planning to share a house with your friends, you should decide between you what you can afford to pay for rent, having factored in all other household and living expenses.
City Centre (L1, L2 and L3) properties that are close to the main campuses will have the highest rents. If you are set on living in town, but don’t want to pay that much, you may want to consider properties on the outskirts which are a short walking distance and can offer close proximity at a lower cost such as Kensington, Edge Hill and some parts of Toxteth.
Other areas are a short bus ride from the City Centre, so make sure to factor in transport costs. Merseytravel is the executive body responsible for the coordinaiton of public transport in the Liverpool City Region, and they have a section on their website dedicated to students, including a journey planner and details of discounted student travel passes.
