The University Students' Guild, which possesses one of the largest student facilities in Europe, offers a variety of services from entertainment to advice, representation to skills training.
Liverpool is a vibrant, cosmopolitan and friendly city, and the campus with all its facilities is right in the city centre. Liverpool was awarded the accolade of European Capital of Culture for 2008, reflecting its excellence and activity in the arts, architecture, music, performance and science. Liverpool's historic waterfront is a World Heritage site, reflecting in great part the history of the city as the major port of embarkation for Europeans emigrating to the United States. Despite being a major European city, Liverpool is within a short travel distance of the mountains of North Wales and the English Lake District.

XJTLU is a joint initiative between the University of Liverpool and Xi’an Jiaotong University, a top Chinese institution. There are over 4000 students at XJTLU studying 19 programmes.
Strategic partnership links with the USA are being strengthened with a strong focus on the State of Georgia, where the city of Liverpool has strong historical and cultural connections.
