What’s it like to live in Liverpool, Abby?

My stay in Nido Haigh Court.


My stay in Nido Haigh Court was great from start to finish. Haigh Court was made to feel like a second home, this resulting in my stay lasting 3 years.


There have been a lot of things that contributed to my stay being so positive. Firstly, the staff, from Lee the General Manager, through to Peter completing any maintenance problems or helping me resolve any issues to the highest of standards. Making the place feel like home, always being there to lend an ear or offer advice.


This was made even better by the range of events that took place throughout the year. A big highlight of mine was the Welcome Event which kicked off the year’s events. This was a great opportunity to meet new people within a chilled-out environment, as well as getting to know all staff members who would be working in my accommodation. The wide range of events meant there was also something for everyone, another event which I loved was celebrating Chinese New Year with our international students. This offered the experience of viewing a lively light display around the Chinese Archway, followed by a very nice Chinese meal.


As well as events that allowed celebration, there were also events that made you feel like you were giving back! A regular event I attended during my stay in Haigh Court was the Homeless Hand Out. This involved handed out emergency blankets and other items to try to help make them a little more comfortable during the winter months. This event was extremely thought-provoking and gave a sense of community spirit and showed what we can do to give back to those less fortunate than ourselves.



The location of Haigh Court also contributed to my stay. I was lucky to be able to reach my university within a 2-minute walk and the same for our 24hr library on campus. As well as being close to the university, I could reach Liverpool city centre within 5 minutes. This meant I was able to enjoy the social side of the university very well. Haigh Court is only a 5-minute walk from Liverpool’s main nightlife, including Concert Square, Seel Street, and Matthews Street to name just a few. The building is also within easy reach of all supermarkets and convenience stores making for easy shopping trips. This also included clothing stores, as well as being surrounded by many different activities. Some of the main attractions within easy reach of Haigh Court are the M&S Bank Arena perfect if you love attending concerts. Ghetto golf, great for a competitive night out along with a wide range of cocktails on offer.


So, if you are looking for a student accommodation that offers amazing staff members, incredible events suited to all, and being within walking distance of Liverpool’s busy nightlife and social scene Nido Haigh Court is the place for you.
