Need help finding accommodation?
There are a range of accommodation options for students in Newcastle upon Tyne. We would always advise that you book your accommodation as soon as you receive your unconditional offer. You can organise your accommodation yourself or alternatively you can contact our International Office for support.
Self-Catered Halls of Residence
Newcastle upon Tyne has a wide variety of purpose-built student accommodation, run by independent providers. Most are centrally located and are within walking distance to Newcastle College’s Rye Hill campus. You can book directly with the provider via the links below.
Find your own private letting
Accommodation that is not purpose-built for students is called private accommodation. Newcastle College does not carry out any checks on private accommodation and students and parents or guardians need to satisfy themselves that the accommodation is acceptable.
Newcastle College is not able to arrange viewings with private landlords and we cannot enquire with private lettings companies on your behalf. However, 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.
When enquiring with private letting agencies, you should take details of multiple available addresses, as by the time you get to see them, some will have already been let and others may not be suitable.
You should always meet landlords and inspect properties in person. Never agree to rent private accommodation without viewing the property. If the current students still live there, 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.
