Student Accommodation at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts

Founded by Paul McCartney and Mark Featherstone-Witty in 1996, the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA) is recognised worldwide as a leading provider of higher education in the field of Acting, Dance, Music and Sound Technology, among others.

Centrally located in Liverpool on Mount Street, LIPA attracts students from across the globe who benefit from living in the heart of this culturally diverse city. Besides studying, you’ll get to take advantage of the vast array of music venues, theatres, art galleries, museums and festivals that Liverpool has to offer.

Boasting a network of specialist teaching staff, LIPA offers students a hands-on yet non-formulaic approach to kickstart their careers in the creative and performing arts sector. Courses are designed to provide students with the tools they need to achieve their goals in the future, and recent figures show that 96% of LIPA’s graduates are in work after leaving. Upon graduating, you’ll join notable alumni including Dawn O’Porter, the Wombats and Liam Lynch.

Student accommodation at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts is dotted around the city. Considering the founder of the university, you may feel it’s only right to find the perfect student home on Penny Lane. Of course, that’s not the only option. Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle is brimming with quirky bars, authentic pubs and home to a bustling community - not to mention an array of properties ranging in size and style.

Alternatively, search for student homes in Toxteth, just a stone’s throw from the LIPA buildings. Here, you’ll find an exceptional selection of restaurants, retail options and local amenities.

Life on Campus

From the moment you enter the university buildings of LIPA, you’ll be immersed in a creative, international environment bustling with diverse talent from every corner. As you explore the campus, you’ll stroll by dance classes, stumble on actors rehearsing lines or overhear what could be the next hit-maker in the music industry.

Because the student population is fairly small, you’ll be surrounded by likeminded, artistic individuals who all share your passion for the arts – pretty soon, you’ll be building connections and making friends for life!

As well as the thriving arts and music scene in Liverpool itself, you’ll be able to take advantage of the range of events that the Students Events Board at LIPA organise throughout the year.

The SEB actively encourages students to partake in extra-curricular passion projects, providing the financial and business support necessary to get your idea of the ground – be it a play you’ve written, a band you’ve started, or a dance show you and your friends have been working on.

Of course, everyone needs downtime, and the LIPA bar is the perfect place to unwind after a hard day’s night (we couldn’t resist). Grab a bite to eat for breakfast at the canteen or take advantage of hot meal options at lunch, including mouth-watering veggie and vegan food.
