Student Accommodation

Home away from home

At Northumbria, we make things easier by offering a variety of University accommodation that suits all tastes and budgets. We have over 5,000 bedrooms that are close to, or have convenient transport to, our campuses in Newcastle upon Tyne. So you can be within easy reach of the University’s facilities and the city’s bustling culture and nightlife. All University Accommodation includes fast 100 MB broadband and utility bills.
We understand that it’s a big step to go to a new city for your time at university. But with so much student accommodation available, it’s straightforward to move in and start meeting other students and developing new friendships. Whether you’re looking to socialise and meet new friends or prefer a quieter environment – we have something to suit you.

Everyone is welcome in our accommodation, from new and returning students, to undergraduates and postgraduates, both from the UK and around the world.

Our accommodation also features full recycling and re-use schemes and there is a wide range of accessible housing for those who require it. For more information about accessiblity, to arrange a viewing, or dicuss your specific requirements, please see the Student Support pages of our website.
