Couples Accommodation Watch
More about Newcastle University
This post probably doesn't apply to just Newcastle university, I only chose it because it's the university I hope to attend this September. Does couple's accommodation allow you to bring your partner who is a non student with you? I know it's extremely limited but is it known for people who live in this type of accommodation to still get on fine with uni life or would some say it restricts you from being able to meet people etc?
I passed your enquiry on to our Accommodation Services team and received the following reply:
Only one of the couple needs to be a student at the University. This is the person that will make the application for accommodation and the contract will be in this person’s name only. In terms of couple accommodation restricting University life – that will depend on the individual. If they are keen to mix with others, then living in a self-contained flat in a block with other single students, should not affect the social aspect unless they choose to exclude themselves from the social scene.
Hope that helps!
