If you're looking for an affordable halls of residence, then Marybone 1 is the place to be. Not only is it affordable but it's a five minute walk away from the city centre! Marybone makes a flat a home by offering great services, such as a welcome Pizza Party that got everyone together for some pizza and booze (all free of course), and frequent events such as ‘Disco Kitchens’ where you can learn to cook whilst partying at the same time. All the onsite staff are friendly and helpful, and if something breaks in your flat then the caretakers are quick to have a look and help you out. If you're a fitness fanatic, then you'll enjoy the gym inside the building along with the weekly running club that Marybone provides. Plus, it's a short distance away from most LJMU buildings, so you're not only getting a bit of exercise but you're saving money from transport. For a first year, Marybone is the place to be and you'll enjoy everything that it, and Liverpool has to offer.
