Queen’s University students seeking accommodation are set to have enhanced options after a unique agreement the university has reached with LIV Student, Belfast. The agreement will see LIV Student Belfast offer its accommodation, which based in the city centre at the corner of York Street and Little Patrick Street, at the same cost and terms and conditions that are applied at the university-owned accommodation.

“We are delighted to reach this agreement with LIV as it provides us additional capacity at an attractive city centre venue in our efforts to respond positively to all applications.”

“This arrangement enables us to be better placed to meet the demand and provide the option of city centre living which some students may prefer. We are also working closely with transport providers so that a good service is available between the university and the city centre.”

Queen’s University currently provides accommodation for over 3,500 students across its own buildings. The university was keen to proactively secure additional accommodation spaces as a contingency. This is due to the exceptional circumstances that have arisen as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic – leading to higher numbers of students seeking university accommodation from across the island, the country and from overseas.

“LIV is committed to providing high quality accommodation for the city’s growing student population and we are pleased that we have reached this agreement with Queen’s University.

“Our location is at the heart of the city and we are keen to play our part in supporting the overall goal of promoting city centre living in a fast growing area of Belfast.”
