Nursing and healthcare students
Accommodation advice for Nursing and healthcare students
Students on healthcare-related courses usually experience difficulties when sharing flats with students on non-health courses because of their differing timetable, workloads and shift patterns. This includes all branches of Nursing itself (Adult, Child and Mental Health) plus Midwifery and Paramedic Studies.
For this reason LJMU recommends that new students on these courses should live in Marybone 3. The main advantages Marybone 3 are as follows:
All bedrooms are en-suite and at £103.00 per week in 2013/14, represent good value
It is the closest accommodation to the Faculty of Health and Applied Social Sciences and also to the adjacent Learning Resource Centre
You will be living in a flat with students on similar courses
You will be able to extend your tenancy and stay on past the normal end of the contract period
If you are in receipt of a monthly paid bursary you can opt to pay your rent in monthly instalments
If you wish to live in cheaper accommodation then a limited number of flats are also available in Marybone 1 for healthcare students. Flats in Marybone 1 typically have six bedrooms and two bathrooms each and this is reflected in a weekly rent of £83.00 per week in 2013/14. These flats are reserved for healthcare students only and will be located in a section of the building nearer to the older students and away from the new undergraduates. However because the vast majority of Marybone 1 residents are not studying on healthcare courses, it is likely that residents of these flats will experience more noise problems than those living in Marybone 3.
Students are free to choose where to live and both Victoria Hall and Atlantic Point are also close to the main Faculty of Health site. However no guarantee can be made about sharing a flat with students on similar courses at these two locations and it is not possible to move into Marybone 3 after the start of the academic year if any problems do emerge.
Nursing students in the March 2014 intake who require accommodation will be able to submit a request via this website from Friday, 1 November 2013 onwards. Unfortunately we cannot accept accommodation requests from this intake before that date.
