Mention Liverpool and people will immediately think of The Beatles and Football, but this northern city has so much more to offer and studying here is filled with an abundance of opportunities for Liverpool’s growing student population.

And what a student population it is! With over 50,000 students from more than 100 different countries, Liverpool offers a choice of four universities: The University of Liverpool, Liverpool Hope University, Liverpool John Moores University and Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA), and Downing Students has a range of contemporary student housing within close proximity of all four of them.

Known for its warm and welcoming atmosphere, Liverpool wouldn’t be Liverpool without the fun and friendly people that live here. We love it so much the Downing Students Head Office is based here and our contemporary student accommodation in Liverpool means you can become a part of the community too.


Whether you choose The Arch, The Electra or our Myrtle Street apartments, each student housing option allows you the chance to make Liverpool your home.

Great Entertainment

Liverpool’s high student population creates an energetic atmosphere in the city and local businesses are keen to support student culture by offering plenty of discounts in their bars, restaurants and shops. And if there’s one thing Liverpool’s good at it’s entertainment. From the various galleries and museums, huge selection of theatres, cinemas and live music, excellent sporting facilities and the beautiful waterfront where you can take the famous ferry across the Mersey.
