    I've put Northumbria as my firm choice for 2016 and in the process of applying for accommodation. I can't really afford the more 'luxury' buildings so if anyone has any insight/recommendations/general thoughts on lower end accommodation for a first year student it'd be much appreciated

    Congratulations on getting in to Northumbria!

    I currently live in Stephenson, which is fairly basic but it does the job, also you can ask for a quieter flat if you like. The rooms are big compared with the other halls aswell! I've heard lovaine is good too. I would reccommend one of the cheaper ones as some of my friends have got no money left after living in the more pricey halls!

    Hope this helps!

    Hey I'm also looking for really cheap accommodation. However my rent has to be even smaller, I'm forced to chose between Lovaine halls/ flats and Claude Gibb hall. Which is better for your social life?

    lol... Exactly the same suituation here. I chose Claude Gibb hall, and chose the 3rd floor because it had free rooms next to the opposite sex (female).

    Are you jut saying this to make us feel better? I have been on this forum for a while and people always say Claude Gibbs and Lovaine halls are the ones to avoid,
    the broke people are the ones that stay there, am I right?

    No not at all! I had many friends who stayed at Claude Gibb while I was at Northumbria Uni, you get your meals cooked for and it is a really fun atmosphere. It's not luxurious, but fun and easy to make friends. Thanks, Liv

    If you have any questions or concerns regarding your upcoming accommodation at Northumbria University, we are here to answer them. Claude Gibb is a very sociable residence, with bedrooms located along a shared corridoor perfect for popping outside and chatting to your friends. It is catered and therefore perfect for those lazy days when you don't feel like cooking. Lovaine Flats tend to be smaller flat sizes, and often the feedback from previous students has told us that bonds form in flats and floors very quickly as a result. Lovaine Halls/flats and Claude Gibb are all located directly on the university campus and you can be out of bed and in your lecture/the students union in five minutes. Whatever accommodation option you decide, we're sure you'll make some lasting friendships during your time at Northumbria and in our halls of residence!
