The number of enrolments a year does not include those who visit the city’s universities and do not end up enrolling, all of whom would be looking for short-term stays when they visit Liverpool. The universities in the city bring a high influx of tourism from non-students who attend events held in the universities, again all of whom are a part of the category for short-term stays.
