Atlantic Youth Creative Hub Project

If working for yourself sounds more appealing, then we can help you ‘Live the Dream!’.

Sensor City has teamed up with the Atlantic Youth Creative Hub Project to provide you with the support and mentoring needed to develop your ideas and to take you through the prototyping and incubation process.

The next cohort will be starting in the next few months, so if you’re interested please email us via and we’ll be in touch.


Student Jelly

We bet you’re aware of the big, golden glass building at the top of Lime Street and have probably walked past it hundreds of times!

But did you know that’s us, Sensor City, a joint venture between The University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University, and a facility that you can access and use?

We run Student Jelly @ Sensor City every week, providing an opportunity for students to come inside our building, use our free work space, access business support and find out more about our on-site tech facilities.

No matter what you study, what year you’re currently in or what university/college you go to, you’re welcome to take advantage of our free tea and coffee, free Wi-Fi and free popcorn.

Just bring a laptop or whatever you need to get your work done. Our break-out spaces are ideal for group work and provides a relaxed and informal alternative to working in the library.

We are also offering a rolling programme of optional drop-in sessions, including demos of our lab equipment (i.e. 3D printers, VR suite and rapid prototyping facilities), introductions to our tenants and corporate members who may be looking to offer placements, and ‘meet the expert’ from our engineering and business development teams.

‘Student Jelly @ Sensor City’ takes place every Wednesday during term time, between 1-5pm, with the specialist sessions at 2:30pm. There’s no need to register, just pop in whenever you’re free.

We’re also keen to hear any new ideas from students in order to improve our Student Jelly offer, so please send your suggestions to:


Student Society Meetings

There are several event spaces within Sensor City which are available to hire for meetings, exhibitions or functions.

However, we would also be happy to host student society meetings for free, which coincide with or run immediately following our Student Jelly sessions.

Creative Opportunities

LJMU Media Student, James Lyall, recently undertook some video filming and production work for Sensor City.

The resulting promotional video showcases the facilities on offer for students within Sensor City and will hopefully encourage more of you to get involved with Student Jelly, as an informal and alternative option to working in the library or studying alone.

Both James and his crew did a fantastic job of capturing the sessions and in highlighting opportunities with our tenant companies. You can view the promo film here.
