Student Homes in Shieldfield, Newcastle
Just east of Newcastle city centre is Shieldfield, a small student area that gets its name from the old Anglo-Saxon term for a shelter in the forest clearing. Contrary to the name, Shieldfield is more buzzing city than country - boasting a range of pubs, restaurants, shops and cafés. That being said, avid runners and amateur basketball players will find it easy to keep active thanks to the expansive park at City Stadium.
Student accommodation in Shieldfield ranges from modern apartments to renovated Victorian terraced homes, catering to the needs of the local community. With the University of Northumbria in walking distance, students living in Shieldfield can practically roll out of bed and into a lecture theatre.
Finished class early? Appreciate the vast collection of art on offer at the Biscuit Factory, a 1-storey arts and crafts gallery just waiting to be explored. Celebrating the end of exam season? Grab some friends and head to the picturesque outdoor garden at Under the Bridge, a buzzing bar and Bowie-inspired diner serving creative cocktails, beers and burgers.
