University Accommodation


Welcome to Newcastle upon Tyne - the place voted the UK's number one city by students!

Northumbria University boasts nearly 5,000 bedrooms within its various residential schemes from en suite, top-of-the-range accommodation to traditional student housing - so there's a wide variety to suit all tastes and budgets.

Our residences are ideally located for students, with excellent proximity or transport links to both campuses and the City Centre, meaning that cars are unnecessary for the majority of our students. All city-based residential students are within a short walking distance of our £30m sporting facilities, the Students' Union and the bustling culture and night life of Newcastle Gateshead. (View interactive map)

Within our residences, we welcome both new and returning students, undergraduates and postgraduates and dedicate some blocks specifically to these groups so we can ensure a quieter environment for those who need it and superb social opportunities for those looking to meet new friends. Additionally, our residences are not only a home-from-home for UK students, but for students from all corners of the world!

We also offer a good range of accessible accommodation. For further details and to arrange viewings and meetings to discuss your specific requirements, please visit our Student Support and Wellbeing web pages.

For those with a green conscience, you'll be pleased to know that our residences operate full recycling and re-use schemes, and participate in a number of key green initiatives, in conjunction with the Students' Union.

We look forward to welcoming you to your new home.
