The Lantern is the student accommodation you’ll want to tell all your friends about!

If you’re still looking for student accommodation in Liverpool, The Lantern is a great choice and we still have some availability. If you can’t see exactly what you are looking for on our website get in touch with the team who will be happy to help you find the perfect room for you.

Plus, at the moment, you can receive up to £350 CASHBACK when you book with us! We’ve also got virtual tours available – contact us now for more details.

With en-suites in shared apartments for you and your friends, or even your own studio for the perfect space to yourself (or you and your other half – at no extra cost!) we’ve got the perfect room for you. Each room comes with a comfy small double bed, en-suite shower room, ample storage, and a study area. If you pick an en-suite room you’ll share a stylish kitchen/living room with your flatmates. Rather a studio? You’ll get your own mini-kitchen – no need to worry about who hasn’t done the washing up!

Just opposite our main accommodation block are our awesome on-site social spaces, these include a fully-kitted out dining room and kitchen space where you have loads of space to host epic dinner parties for you and your mates, a games room with a pool and football table, multi-media space with an Xbox and projector, and huge study rooms that you’ll have access to 24/7. We also host events with freebies regularly so keep a look out on our social channels for the next!

Don’t worry about a gym membership, as our on-site gym is open exclusively for our residents, and a meeting room – perfect for a group study session. With a dedicated on-site team you can be sure that you’ll find someone to help no matter how big or small the problem – or even just to have a chat.

Location, Location, Location! The Lantern is right in the city centre, directly opposite the main train station, Liverpool Lime Street – perfect for move in and travelling. With  John Moores University and Liverpool University within an easy walk, you won’t ever have to worry about being late to lectures.

And for all those essentials (and non-essentials) St Johns Shopping Centre and Liverpool One are just a few minutes walk away, as well as a whole host of bars, restaurants, cafes and the Royal Albert Dock.

We think we’re pretty great, but here’s what some of our students have to say about living with us

After a smooth check in I found my room to be modern and much bigger than expected. The staff are helpful and friendly and they organise loads of great events.

Zain, Student

Staying at The Lantern was the best decision I've ever made! This is my third year living in halls and it is the best customer service I have experienced.

Kate, Student

The friendly staff at The Lantern do everything possible to make your stay hassle-free. They constantly go above and beyond. The building is brand new and comes with great amenities.
