  1. General information

    Almost 23,000 students call Newcastle University their academic home. The institution is ranked in the top 1% of the world’s universities, and thanks to the fact that nine out of ten students are essentially over the moon with their time there, student satisfaction is among the highest in the UK. It’s a public research University which is a member of the prestigious Russell Group and it’s also a red brick University, too. Its origins can be traced way back to 1834.

    Newcastle has been named as one of the top civic universities in the country meaning that it places emphasis on delivering benefits not just to students, but to places that will then hire them as well as society as a while. Newcastle University is committed to putting knowledge into practice and wants to make a difference.

    International students will fit right in thanks to the efforts consistently made by the University to integrate them into their diverse student body.

    Our Newcastle University accommodation puts you at the heart of everything so that you can make the most of your time in this fantastic Northern city. You’re never too far from all of the amazing things it has to offer, so you can study in style.

  2. The campus

    Newcastle University has a city campus located in the North West of the centre. The University grounds are home to a range of interesting buildings including The Armstrong Building (the oldest one on campus and is where, among other things, ceremonies are held) and The Devonshire Building (which is energy-efficient and super modern!).

    Newcastle’s libraries are held in three main facilities which are open until 10pm except on weekends, so they’re perfect for those late-night cramming sessions. You’ll be able to loan books, research using journals and other resources, use the computer or even borrow a laptop.  The counter service is awesome - Newcastle's Library Service is the only one in the UK to be awarded the government's special customer services award a staggering five times!

    When it comes to activities, Newcastle’s campus is able to provide. Newcastle University Students' Union organise a great range of activities for students, and there’s everything from bars to gigs for you to enjoy your downtime. There are many clubs and societies which they’d be pleased to welcome you to, across a broad range of interests. Sport fans can also have a whale of a time; as there are indoor and outdoor facilities at four different sites in total, and the University is consistently one of the most admired for sport in the UK.

    The Newcastle student accommodation we provide is not only central to the city itself but also to the University and all of these fantastic facilities right on your doorstep.

    The standards chosen for the Codes reflect a balance of common sense obligations and responsibilities between landlords and tenants. They also reflect established best practice in the sector and are based on what an average student and their parents would expect of a good quality housing supplier. The standards are supported by the voice of students themselves through the National Union of Students.

    What does being a member of the codes mean?

    • Both parties can enjoy the benefits of good standards of housing management and practice.
    • Misunderstandings and disputes are reduced.
    • If problems do occur they can be promptly resolved.
    • The independent complaints procedure operated by the Codes can be used for complaint resolution.
