I'll be transferring to Newcastle University in September, entering second year, and I'm stuck on what to do for accommodation
I'm drawn to university owned accommodation at the moment (I've been informed I'd qualify to apply) - I particularly like the look of Castle Leazes and Park Terrace - so I can at least get to know people and make friends, even if the majority, if not all, there will be first year students. This is especially as apparently the course I'm transferring to (Media, Communication & Cultural Studies) doesn't have a particularly large cohort
I was just wondering if anyone who's transferred before, regardless of whether it's Newcastle or a different university, has some advice for me? Did you go for uni owned accommodation? Or did you go totally private in a studio flat? Or did you somehow find second years looking for another person for a house share?
Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
Edit: I've also looked at private options such as Union Square which isn't that bad priced for the cheapest option considering it's private, but there's the issue of say I get a flat that is me and then the rest are Northumbria students for example

You mentioned you were interested in the Union Square property. Have you thought about Stepney Yard? This is located right next to Union Square, a brand new student building for the upcoming year, and a short walk from Northumbria University.
There are also launch prices for only a short time, and i have a room which i can no longer occupy due to change in circumstances. I have copied in an image with further details.
If you need anymore information about this specific room (one of the best available in the building!), then please let me know, as i can change my contract.
More information is available at stepneyyard.com as well.
