Finding accommodation near Newcastle University
A Russell Group university and one of the original redbrick UK universities, Newcastle University is an academic research powerhouse, but it is also recognised as delivering some of the best Art and Design, and Communications and Media courses in the country. The University and the city of Newcastle are consistently cited and rated as one of the best student experiences in the country, thanks to a buzzing city and exciting local cultures.
Newcastle University is situated on one sprawling central campus, close to Haymarket in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne. Alongside winning various architectural, and environmental-impact awards, many of the campus buildings have strong ties to British history, especially surrounding WWI and WWII.
Private accommodation options are, naturally, located off-campus, but with the Newcastle University's central location and great public transport links, students will always be within easy range for a quick commute to early morning lectures.
For students who love the bustle of city living, Newcastle has plenty of apartments perfect for two to share. Plus, unlike many modern cities, there are also a number of 4-bedroom-plus properties available skirting the busy City Centre.
Moving slightly further out of the centre, the north-east of Newcastle is filled with popular student spots. Areas like Sandyford and Jesmond are crammed with modern student properties, catering from 1-bedroom studios or apartments (perfect for those of us who enjoy the peace and quiet), right up to 5-bedroom and 6-bedroom HMOs for groups of housemates who just can’t bear to be apart.
Around two miles east of Newcastle City Centre is Heaton, another popular student area thanks to both its inexpensive rents compared to other parts of the city, and the availability of open parks and frequent community events like festivals and silent movie nights. It’s also well serviced by key transport links into the main city and has plenty of essential amenities nearby such as large supermarkets, independent social spaces and shops.
