Intro

Lucky enough to be studying in Liverpool and looking for student accommodation? Well, Cathedral Campus is located just next to the Anglican Cathedral. For those who are thinking of studying at LIPA, Liverpool John Moores University or University of Liverpool, its a great base for your student experience.

Not only would one be in close distance to their campuses, but theyd also be situated near to China Town and only a 10 minute walk to the city centre. Its a great place to stay to make the most of the time here in Liverpool especially with the range of bars, restaurants and shops nearby!

Here at Cathedral Campus, they offer accommodation in shared houses (ranging from 2-5 beds) as well as an own studio apartment. Students will have the right balance of living in their own house but theyll still be part of the student community that they offer.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the application and booking fee?

To secure your room youll need to pay an application fee or booking fee. You can make your payment via your online portal once you have created an account with us. You can also pay via bank transfer, please click on the sites below to find out the bank details.

A 200 booking fee is required if you wish to stay with us at Beechwood House, Manchester; Hotwells House, Bristol; and Weston Court, Manchester. Of this 200, 50 is a non-refundable booking fee.  Once your tenancy starts, the remaining 150 will become a deposit which will be entered in to a deposit protection scheme called My Deposits. At the end of your tenancy, your deposit will be returned to you provided you left your room/flat in the same condition as when you first moved in.

A non-refundable application fee of 99 applies for Cathedral Campus, Liverpool; The Grafton, Manchester; MSV South, Manchester; MSV, Manchester and Garth Heads, Newcastle.


How do we allocate rooms?

Once you have applied, our Sales Team will look through your application, check to find you the best room available and send you a Room Offer email. Please note that although we will always try to meet your preferences we cant guarantee that we can meet them all.


What is a guarantor? Do I need one?

If youre paying ahead for the full year, you dont have to provide a UK guarantor.

However, if you wish to pay your rent in instalments, you will need a UK-based guarantor who is working full-time. Your guarantor must agree to pay the rent should you default on your payment. Providing a guarantor is common practice in the UK and provides us with the security and knowledge that the rent will be paid in full and on time.

If you cannot provide a qualified UK guarantor, you can contact Housing Hand to provide you with the Guarantor Service. Housing Hand specialises in dealing with International Students who cannot provide a Guarantor in the UK.  To find out more, visit Housing Hand


Is the student population diverse?

We embrace equality and diversity. We promote a culture of equality and fairness for all and ensure our employees are aware of the Equality and Diversity Policy, and their responsibilities under it towards our students and their visitors. We want to make a home for our students that is free from discrimination, harassment, victimisation and bullying.


Can I live with my friends or specify preferences for my flatmates?
