Ormskirk is a hub for bargain buys and inexpensive travel. Whether you’re shopping on a budget or looking for a reasonably priced day out, you’ll find it at just a 15-minute walk from our beautiful campus.
Affordable student housing
The cost of living in the North West of England is much cheaper than in the South East or London. Ormskirk shares Edge Hill’s community spirit, with more than 1,000 EHU students living in the area.
If you choose to live in private accommodation, the amount you pay will depend on the housing you choose. According to Accommodation for Students, a shared house in Ormskirk will cost you approximately £86 per week. If you choose to live off-campus, you’ll never be out of the way. You can travel or walk to campus within minutes.
If you’re interested in renting private accommodation, start by speaking to our Accommodation Team for advice and guidance. Whatever your idea of home may be, you’ll find all the inspiration you need at the Accommodation Team’s house hunting workshops and housing fairs.
