What students say about Liverpool's...

City Life
Liverpool's nightlife alone is spectacular; the city is filled with culture; and we are home of the Beatles - why would you go elsewhere!?
Holly, Liverpool John Moores University student
Because it's all centred around Concert Square, you can dip in and out of different bars depending on what offers they have on, and it feels very safe with police and club bouncers.

Big chains like Wetherspoons offer cheap pitchers [while] smaller local pubs provide a good variety of guest real ales and ciders. The Grapes and The Pilgrim frequently have live local music.

What students say about living in Liverpool...

Living Here
I live in Smithdown which is where most students live. It's a great area with local shops such as Asda and Tesco a 5 minute walk away, as well as having great transport links. I would live in the same area again if given the chance.

Living Here
Wavertree itself is fine. Lots of young couples and families. Not too many other students, but we chose this purposely. Close to bus stops and Edge Hill train station for easy access to Lime Street and Manchester Victoria.
