Newcastle College are not able to arrange viewings with private landlords and we cannot enquire with private lettings companies on your behalf. We can advise on how to make contact with private lettings companies in the city and we can give you some useful tips on how to approach this kind of accommodation option.
Phone landlords and make appointments to view properties. You should take details of many addresses as by the time you get to see them, some will have already gone and others may not be very good. Visit landlords and inspect properties. If the current students are still in occupation, ask if it is alright to have a look around. Most students will not mind. Ask the current occupants about any practical problems they may have had.
We recommend that you take a friend with you on all viewings and that you do not accept any property until you have inspected it.
If you think privately let accommodation is the option for you and you would like further information regarding letting agents in the city please contact the International Office:
