Liverpool John Moores University (informally LJMU) is a British new university located in the city of Liverpool, England. The university is named after John Moores and was previously called Liverpool Mechanics' School of Arts and later Liverpool Polytechnic before gaining university status in 1992, thus becoming Liverpool John Moores University.
The university is a member of the University Alliance, a mission group of British universities established in 2007. It is also a member of the European University Association and the North West Universities Association. At present, LJMU serves more than 24,000 students comprising 20,270 undergraduate students and 4,100 postgraduate students, making it the largest university in Liverpool by student population – as well as the twentieth largest in the United Kingdom.
Originally founded as a small mechanics institution (Liverpool Mechanics' School of Arts) in 1823, the institution grew over the centuries by converging and amalgamating with different colleges before eventually becoming Liverpool Polytechnic. The University also has a long history of providing training, education and research to the maritime industry, dating back to the formation of the Liverpool Nautical College in 1892. Today it is one of the leading maritime Universities in the UK.
The institution then became a university under the terms of the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 under the new title of "Liverpool John Moores University". This new title was approved by the Privy Council on 15 September 1992. The university took its name from Sir John Moores, the founder of the Littlewoods empire. Moores was a great believer in the creation of opportunity for all, which embodies the ethos of LJMU in providing educational routes for people of all ages and from all backgrounds. This belief led Sir John Moores to invest in the institution and facilities, such as the John Foster Building (housing the Liverpool Business School), designed by and named after leading architect John Foster. With the institution's backgrounds dating back as far as 1823, many of the university buildings date back also, with aesthetically pleasing Georgian and Victorian buildings found on a few of the campuses.
Currently, Liverpool John Moores University is receiving more applications than previously seen. The university was placed at number 20 in the country for applications received in 2007, the total number of applications submitted to LJMU was 28,214.
On 14 April 2008, Dr Brian May CBE was inducted into the university as the fourth Chancellor of Liverpool John Moores University. Dr May is also the lead guitarist for the rock band Queen. He replaced outgoing Chancellor Cherie Booth QC, wife of former Prime Minister Tony Blair. Honorary fellows in attendance at the ceremony included Sir Patrick Moore and Pete Postlethwaite.
LJMU is a founding member of the Northern Consortium, an educational charity, owned by eleven universities in the north of England. Alongside LJMU, this group was co founded by The University of Bradford, The University of Huddersfield, Leeds Metropolitan University, The University of Leeds, The University of Liverpool, Manchester Metropolitan University, The University of Manchester, The University of Salford, Sheffield Hallam University and The University of Sheffield.
As of February 2011 the demographics makeup of LJMU students is as follows:
The university is based primarily on three campuses:
The university is organised into six faculties (which are each split into schools or centres), most of the faculties are based at a particular campus site however, with many joint honours degrees and some conventional degrees, the faculties overlap meaning students' degrees are from both faculties. The six faculties are:
Faculty of Business and Law
Faculty of Education, Community and Leisure
Faculty of Health and Applied Social Sciences
Faculty of Media, Arts and Social Science
Faculty of Science
Faculty of Technology and Environment
The university is currently expanding and improving numerous buildings on the three campus sites: the latest project will be the new £20 million Byrom Street development. Once completed in 2009, it will enable the university to consolidate science teaching to one location. Around 50 per cent of the new building's 6,400 square metre floorspace will be given over to specialist teaching and research laboratories, with the remainder being used for teaching, IT suites and staff accommodation. LJMU's School of Sport and Exercise Sciences is ranked as the United Kingdom's number one for both teaching and research in this field. The specialist facilities housed within the new building reflect the School's elite status and will include an indoor 70-metre running track and labs for testing cardio-vascular ability, motor skills and bio-mechanics functions. The building will also have additional biochemistry and psychology teaching labs.
Another major addition to the university is the Art and Design Academy, which replaced the previous disparate locations of the department. The £21.4 million development opened in 2008 to coincide with the European Capital of Culture bid which was won by Liverpool and is based at the Mount Pleasant campus.
LJMU hosts guest lectures on occasion, with past speakers including the Dalai Lama, Steven Spielberg, Willy Russell, Phil Redmond, Alastair Campbell, and Baroness Shirley Williams of Crosby. The latest guest speakers were United States Senator George J. Mitchell, Michael Heseltine CH, PC, and Next clothing retailer George Davies. The next guest speaker at the University will be Terry Leahy, the current CEO of market leading supermarket Tesco.
There are currently three Learning Resource Centres (LRCs) based at the three campus sites operated by LJMU. The two largest and more modern LRC facilities are the Avril Robarts LRC which is based on the City campus and used mainly (but not exclusively) by students studying on the city campus, in particular the Byrom Street and Marybone students. The Aldham Robarts LRC (which is based on the Mount Pleasant campus) is used mainly by students at the Mount Pleasant campus, this campus includes the faculty of Business and Law but student based closely to the LRC on a range of courses also use this facility. The third LRC is sited on the IM Marsh campus in Aigburth and is used exclusively (due to location outside the City centre) by student at this campus.
There are more than 68,500 books in the LRCs' collections, with 1,630 work spaces available for students 24 hours a day. In addition to this there are over 16,000 e-books and 5,000 e-journals available. It is a member of the Libraries Together: Liverpool Learning Partnership (evolved from Liverpool Libraries Group) which formed in 1990. Under which, a registered reader at any of the member libraries can have access rights to the other libraries within the partnership.
Situated on Maryland Street at the heart of the Mount Pleasant Campus and right opposite the Student's Union, Aldham Robarts caters mainly for the Faculty of Business and Law (Accountancy, Business, Criminal Justice, Economics, Information Science, Languages, Law, Librarianship) and the Faculty of Media, Arts and Social Science (Architecture, Art, Design, Drama, European Studies, Geography, History, Interior Design, Media, Critical and Creative Arts, Politics, Social Sciences, Design, Visual Arts)
This LRC is open 24 hours during term time.
Avril Robarts is located on Tithebarn Street on City Campus, and covers three faculties: Faculty of Health and Applied Social Sciences (Childhood Studies, Health, Midwifery, Nursing, Social Work, Youth and Community Work), the Faculty of Science (Astrophysics, Biochemistry, Biology, Biomedical Sciences, Biophysics, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Construction Management, Countryside Management, Earth Science, Forensic Science, Microbiology, Pharmacy, Physics, Psychology, Science, Sport, Wildlife Conservation) and the Faculty of Technology and Environment (Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Engineering, Environmental Engineering and Management, Housing, Manufacturing, Mechanical Engineering, Marine and Offshore Engineering, Maritime Studies, Transport and Logistics, Building, Building Surveying, Civil Engineering, Commercial Property, Computing, Mathematics, Planning, Quantity Surveying, Technology Management, Statistics, Urban Renewal)
This LRC is open 24 hours during term time.
This services the IM Marsh campus at Aigburth and covers the Faculty of Education, Community and Leisure (Consumer Studies, Dance, Education, Food and Nutrition, Leisure and Tourism, Outdoor and Environmental Education, Physical Education, Tourism and Leisure) which is situated at this site.
This LRC is open until 11 pm during term time.
The University is ranked among the top 20 UK Higher Education Institutions in terms of the economic impact of its research and it is the highest in the North West of England. A recent survey ranked the University 4th out of 160 UK HEIs in terms of the number of interaction with business and industry and 24th for the value of bespoke CPD courses.

Students at the University are represented by the Liverpool Students' Union. As there are three campus sites for the University, there are also three separate Student Union facilities, each open to all Liverpool John Moores University students. The main Student Union is housed in the Haigh Building at the Mount Pleasant campus. Separate Student Union buildings are based on the IM Marsh and Byrom Street campuses.
Representation for all students is central and is conducted by executive officers elected annually. In most cases, these students will be on a sabbatical from their studies. The election process is normally contested in mid April, successful candidates assuming office the following academic year.
In 2007, the university and Students' Union launched a mentoring scheme designed to help new students setting into university life.
The Haigh Building is the main City Centre venue, the venue recently won Best Bar None awards for the second year running and has three main social areas.
The Engine Room features a bar and nightclub venue where students can enjoy a range of exciting entertainment. The Engine Room has a diverse music scene including Indie, House and Cheesy Chart Pop. The Engine room hosts a weekly silent disco and weekly nationwide student event Flirt!. The Engine Room also has a range of drinks promotions available to students and during the day plays venue to numerous societies. The Engine Room also host special guest appearances and live bands and has big screens to allow for live sport.
The Sanctuary is in the middle of the Haigh Building and is known to be a quieter area of the Student Union. The Sanctuary has a bar which throughout the day serves drinks, sandwiches and a range of hot meals. The Sanctuary also houses the Liverpool John Moores University darts team who regularly play and practice in the venue. The Sanctuary has computing facilities for students and is located between The Engine Room and The Scholars Bar.
The Scholars Bar is the most popular area of the Student Union, serving a large variety of beers, wines and spirits from around the globe all at student prices. There are two big screens that allow the broadcasting of simultaneous football matches and various sporting events and also music. It also has four pool tables, games machines, quizzes and regular karaoke. Similarly to The Sanctuary, The Scholars Bar also serves food throughout the day.
Greenshields Bar is located at the IM Marsh campus. Liverpool Students' Union run the bar on campus and there is also a student shop. The bar is a popular spot at Aigburth site with students living on and off-campus. The bar has a big screen for live football games and there is also the Friday night "disco" at the venue.
The Byrom Street Students' Union provides students with a shop selling various useful things. The Byrom Street Union is the smallest of the three sites. The campus is conveniently located near to the students library. The bar at the Byrom Street campus closed down in academic year 2007/08.
The Looprevil Press is a student newspaper at Liverpool Students' Union. It is both a student society and a part of the student media. As of May 2009, The Looprevil Press has been funded by the Liverpool Students' Union. The Looprevil Press was founded in September 2008 by student Shamit Patel and is currently the only student newspaper in circulation in Liverpool. The LP offices are located on the second floor of the Haigh building.
The name, The Looprevil Press, is simply Liverpool spelled backwards and plays in with their tag line of “Bringing you the other side of Liverpool”. This was done in an attempt to reflect the duality of student life, to show that they can be both professional and a little eccentric of nature.
The Looprevil Press started out as a dynamic website which contains four sections; News, Opinion, Entertainment and Sports. The current team consists of 29 members and is made up of writers, photographers and a web designer. The website is active throughout the year while the print edition is circulated four times during the academic year.
The union also has a radio station called Looprevil Radio which is run by students Adam Rickwood and Chris Mather.
Liverpool John Moores University over recent years has sold off a number of previously University owned halls of residence. North Western Hall, formerly the North Western Hotel, built by Alfred Waterhouse in 1871, was sold to Cosmopolitan Student Homes in 2004. The hall is situated conveniently between the City and Mount Pleasant campuses.
The most popular halls for students studying at the City Campus are Atlantic Point, Victoria Hall and Marybone. Both of these can be found within a few hundred metres of major University buildings. Many IM Marsh students reside in the accommodation provided on campus in Aigburth but others choose to live in the city-centre. Two of the most popular halls for students based in the Mount Pleasant Campus are Grand Central (for its location close to the university and city centre) and Cambridge Court (for its close proximity to the buildings of the Business Faculty and LJMU's new Art & Design Academy).
The International Study Centre (ISC) offers foundation courses (pre-degree and pre-masters) for students whose academic qualifications do not qualify them for direct access to degree or postgraduate programmes. The majority of students come from emerging markets, such as China and Russia as well as the nations bordering the Persian Gulf.
The ISC courses teach a mix of English and academic skills. There are currently two undergraduate routes: Business, Law and Social Studies; and Engineering, Computing and Life Sciences, leading to over thirty full time degrees at the university. For postgraduates, there is a 14 week pre-masters/MBA course.
The courses are validated by LJMU, but are delivered by Study Group, a global education provider. Students who enroll on the courses are given conditional offers at LJMU, but must meet academic standards in order to progress to the degree of their choice.
Liverpool John Moores University has BUCS-registered teams in badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rugby league, rugby union, tennis, volleyball and swimming. Many of the sports teams compete in BUCS competitions. Liverpool Students' Union has 15 BUCS sports, from which 36 teams run, catering for over 800 athletes. In recent years, LJMU students have competed for BUCS representative squads, in national finals and at World University Championships.

John Moores Painting Prize is a contemporary art prize and involves a bi-annual competitive art exhibition held at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool. It is named after Sir John Moores, the founder of the competition. First held in 1957, it is Britain's most well-known competition aimed solely at painters and is now part of the Liverpool Biennial, a city-wide celebration of the arts that encompasses the Tate Liverpool, Bluecoats Gallery and other venues in Liverpool. In 2008 the exhibition will be a major part of Liverpool's celebrations as European Capital of Culture.
Recently the John Moores Alumni Association created an Alumnus Board and an Alumnus Business Network Group.
