Apply for Accommodation

Our deposit guarantee: If you book accommodation for September 2020 but are unable to attend the University due to Covid-19 travel restrictions, we will refund the full advance rent payment.


Bookings for current students are now open - log into your student portal to start your application. Make sure to check the latest offers and promotions for the latest deals.

You can book accommodation in five easy steps:

1. Make Northumbria University your FIRM choice

2. Receive your student portal login details via email, log in and go to the Accommodation section to start your application.

Top Tip: Make sure you register with your personal email address and not one associated to a school/college. School/College email addresses are often closed after you leave and can delay the process.

3. Choose your exact room

Everybody who books accommodation before A-Level results day can self-select their own building and room based on live availability. Choose from rooms on shared corridors, in cluster flats of 3-10 rooms or self-contained studios. You can also view the age, gender, home country and course details of your flatmates so you can select a room that suits you.

Top Tip: You will pick a room based on the building floor plan. Take your time to decide which room you want and where you want to be located in the flat.

4. Sign your contract

You will be asked to sign your contract online as a part of your booking.

Top Tip: Make sure you read your contract carefully as it is a legally binding contract. If you don’t understand anything, get in touch, we will be happy to run through it with you.

5. Pay your deposit

You will need to make a £250 advance rent payment to complete the booking.

Once you've completed the process above, the room is secured for you. You will also get access to our dedicated Facebook groups to help you connect with flatmates before you arrive.
