Virtual find a housemate meet-ups and help with student accommodation

If you haven’t found your housemate group for the next academic year, and you want to live with other students, don’t worry or feel pressured to join a group with people you don’t know that well.

Liverpool has lots of available accommodation, and there will always be properties available no matter when you decide to start your search. Give yourself plenty of time to find others who you really gel with, before making any big decisions.

If you’re starting to look at your options for the next academic year, then Liverpool Student Homes (LSH) can support you in looking for properties and finding housemates.

Find a housemate meet-ups

The LSH find a housemate meet-ups are a great way to connect with other students who are looking to arrange accommodation for next year.

You can chat with other students, or leave your details for others to contact you. You can also form a group or find a room in any LSH accredited property. Also, if you are trying to leave a tenancy and need to find another student to replace you in your contract, you can join the meeting to advertise your room.

The meetings are currently being held virtually via Zoom The next meet-up takes place on Thursday 3 February from 11:30am – 12:30pm. Please email the LSH team at for the meeting details.

Student message board

The online LSH message board is another great way to get in touch with others who are looking to form a group or to find rooms. The message board is split into several threads, including areas of Liverpool, find a housemate and accommodation available/wanted. You can post messages to other students and it’s free to use.

Please note only rooms that are in LSH accredited properties can be advertised, and when submitting a message you will be asked to provide the property address, as well as the details of the landlord or letting agent that manages the property to verify the accommodation provider is LSH accredited.

Searching for individual rooms on the LSH website

If you don’t mind who you share with, you can choose to search for individual rooms in shared properties on the Accommodation Search page. You can compare prices and locations right across the city to make sure you’re getting the best deal for you. There are lots of different types and sizes of properties available and it’s a way of finding a shared property without having to form a group first.
