Foundation year students

If you're currently a foundation year student and would prefer to live with new students next year, drop us a line at rc.accommodation@northumbria.ac.uk and we would be happy to help.

You will still be eligible to take advantage of the current students offer above.

Why stay with us?

There are many benefits to staying with us:

Low cost

We offer shorter contract lengths than the private sector.  If you do need to stay for the summer, no problem, we can do that too.

Many people think that the private sector is cheaper, but once you add on an extra weeks rent, utility bills, internet services and contents insurance, the cost increases dramatically.

Plus if you book by 31 December, we'll pay your deposit for you and give you a £50 Intu voucher as a bonus!

Stay together

Like the idea of living with your friends altogether? We can house you and your friends together in one flat, without the arguments about who hasn’t paid the bills! You will each have an individual tenancy and we won’t hold you jointly liable if one of your flatmates doesn’t pay or decides to leave the University.

Our application system lets you see the live occupancy of the flat, so make sure you choose a flat with the right amount of empty rooms and book together. (Please note the full flat temporarily locks while a person is selecting their room in it, you will need to wait until your friend has finished their booking before you can apply.

No Nasty Surprises

 For University managed residences, you only need to pay £250 deposit to reserve your room. We won’t charge you a contract signing fee and there are no scary credit checks, and no need for a guarantor (in University managed residences)!

Added extras

We have shared laundry facilities at all our sites and in Trinity Square, each flat contains a washing machine/tumble drier and a dishwasher.

We have secure cycle storage at a number of our residences and are in close vicinity of several Mobike stations. (Mobike is a new bike hire scheme in Newcastle that lets you hire a bike for a small charge.)

You'll also get the support of the pastoral care teams and residence staff will be on hand for repairs and maintenance, as well as being able to sign for your parcels!
