Deciding what to do about first year living arrangements can be quite daunting. Fear not, though! If you take a little time to do your research and don’t leave it to the last minute, you’re likely to find something suitable! Below I’ve pulled together the three options for students at Newcastle and handy list of pros and cons for each option.
This is the most common option for first year students. The University has a wide range of halls to suit all budgets and preferences from en-suite rooms to catered halls. Some accommodation sites even have an on site gym…
Amongst some of your options you can choose from for next year are:
Castle Leazes (has a catered option!)
–Liberty Plaza (close to the Business School)
| h o m e | Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You'll find what you need to furnish it – memory, friends you can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with you wherever you journey. -Tad william The place i called home for the past month. Marris house. Though you made me climb flights of stairs everyday. Though the ventilation was poor. Though the washing machine was miles away. I think i'll still miss you. To my room mates whom tolerated my nonsense. Hope you guys have a safe trip back home! And also to those whom i almost cause your life with my poor driving skills! It's time to embark on my next phase of travelling. Where i can truly say i will be travelling alone. Solo. Bye Newcastle. I truly miss the days i spent there and memories will be embedded into me. PS i miss having my own personal space. . . . . . . . #backpacker #studenttraveller #MyNclOIP #NCL #NewcastleUniversity #NewcastleUponTyne #travelgram #MarrisHouse #sgboy #budgettraveller #nelonholis #neltravelogue #OnlyNelfor18days #Soloshot #goprophotography #gopro #hero4 #selfshot #quotes #qotd #home
–St. Mary’s College (cheapest!)
–The View (close to the Business School)
–Windsor Terrace (close to the Robinson Library!)
If you are looking to stay in uni halls next year, you have until June 30th to apply!
The city has a wide range of private accommodation if the uni’s offering doesn’t suit your preferences. Many of the sites are in the city centre, making the walk to campus just 10-15 minutes long. These are some of the most well-known ones:
–Fresh Student Living (2 locations)
–Derwent Students (3 locations)
–CRM Students (4 locations)
–Liberty Living (3 locations)
Best if you have friends already living here.
Whether you go for uni halls or for private accommodation, in Newcastle you are likely to find a great place to live during your 1st year!
