    There is a mix of students from Coach Lane living on both campuses as well as at home/in private accommodation/in Marleen Court, it depends on what you want. If you live on City campus then you can walk to/from town but you have to get up earlier to get the bus to lectures etc, whereas if you live on Coach Lane it's the other way round. Both campuses have a Students' Union and there are still pubs near Coach Lane to go out in. On Coach Lane you'll most likely be living with just other students at Coach Lane whereas on City campus most people are studying on that campus.

    The bus timetable for the bus that goes directly to both campuses is here: http://www.northumbria.ac.uk/brochur...93,13053,61829

    Outside of those times you can get the metro between Manors (5-10 min walk from City East Campus) and Four Lane Ends (10 min walk from Coach Lane). I can't find a specific timetable on their site but they let you enter a departure/arrival time and show what is available, and I've managed to get times from about 5.30am - 11.30pm on a weekday. The website is here if you want to look: http://www.nexus.org.uk/travel-infor...ey-planner?ab=

    There are also buses, with the number 1 stopping opposite City Campus and going in/just outside Coach Lane depending on the time of day, the timetable for that is here: http://www.nexus.org.uk/sites/nexus....B-071111_2.pdf (opposite city campus is Haymarket John Dobson Street).

    Hi I've firmed Physio as well! I am definitely going to live in the city because think it will be better for a social life as more students are there plus I think they run free buses between the two campuses so hopefully won't be too hard to get to coach lane for lectures etc

    Chances are that there are just too many people trying to access it at the same time. Maybe it's your internet connection, though. My internet was too slow when I first tried logging in. But maybe there's something wrong with the system. You could always email them? I've found them super helpful whenever I contacted them, even though my questions were usually pretty dense and I could have found the answers elsewhere on the site.

    Since you are going into second year I would probably suggest quieter accommodation because it is more important than your first year. You're probably going to want to be able to concentrate and sleep at night without being disturbed by flat parties and/or people coming in late drunk and making lots of noise. However if you want the 'first year student experience' of going out a lot and getting drunk then go for the louder accommodation.

    You can always make friends through your course and through joining societies. If you go with Student Castle you have a studio so you won't have problems like people leaving their mess in the kitchen or stealing your food and you'll know when you invite friends over that you have the place to yourselves and it will be as tidy as you left it.

    It's also worth noting that most of the accommodation is pretty central, including Student Castle, so you can still walk to uni in quiet accommodation.

    Hey, I've firmed Physio aswell.
    I really want to stay in victoria halls but when you apply it only lets you apply for 'city ensuite single' so we could end up in any of them :/
    where have you applied for?
