    Hey there is a website that list all of the private halls in newcastle, I've left campus accommodation too late to apply for so i'm going with 'Garth Heads' in the city centre. I visited it the other day and it seems pretty good for £99pw, bigger than any £99pw campus accommodation. I would say that if you were to pick this one, that there is very little (if any) size difference between the more expensive bedroom options.

    The website - http://www.accommodationforstudents...._Newcastle.asp

    Remember that the 'start from' price i the cheapest and if you dont want 51 weeks, the price per week goes up quite a bit.

    hope this helps!

    Hi Rhe,

    We've got some places you could take a look at?
    Jesmond Apartments and Melbourne Apartments, they have all their bills included in the price to help make the the year less stressful.
    If you take a liking to either of them there is currently an offer of £500 cash back or free parking for the next 20 bookings.

    I wish you luck with your search, and if you have any questions i'm more than happy to help.

    Callum.

    Hey Callum,
    The Melbourne apartments and Plummer house look great but it's sadly out of my budget.
    Are there any deals to help international students?

    Rhe,

    As far as i'm aware, we don't personally have any deals, however if you haven't done so already you could potentially get in contact with your Uni and inquire about the possibility of getting a student grant.
    Other than that i'm not sure what else would be possible.

    Kind regards,

    Callum.

    Hey there, I'm literally in the same boat as you I left booking accommodation too late and in September I'll be coming down for first year. I saw Garth heads the other day but wasn't too sure if I should pick private accommodation, what would you recommend?

    hey roman707, I am currently choosing between liberty quay studios, stepney yard and burgess house as they offer bigger rooms compared to garth heads. What uni are you joining and what course?!

    I checked those out they looked pretty good and in my budget but I think stepney yard was fully booked when I checked it the other day! I've joined the waiting list for stepney yard so fingers crossed. I'm going to Northumbria too and joining the Law course, what course are you doing?

    Hi, I'm starting this September too... studying design! I'm thinking The Shield looks really good. Its brand new for this september but the company FRESHSTUDENTLIVING has accommodation all over the country. I'd check it out...

    Just couldn't justify the prices northumbria were asking for the quality and size of the halls....

    Hi,

    Hope you don’t mind me jumping in here.

    You might want to take a look at The Shield student accommodation building in Shieldfield, a 5 minute walk away from campus.

    We're a brand new building so you would be the first to live there. We've got both Studios and Cluster apartments, and lots of social rooms like a gym and cinema room so you can get involved in a whole host of events.

    Like our Facebook page to have a look at our pictures and competitions:
    @TheShieldUK

    If you’re interested, check out our website: www.freshstudentliving.co.uk/theshield

    Hope to hear from you.

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    I'm a final year Economics student at Northumbria living in private accommodation (Union Square), which is owned by the same people that have Stepney Yard. We have had a nightmare this year with getting hidden fees and generally bad customer service from Exchange Residential considering we pay a hell of a lot (£507 per month). However, a new company has just taken over which may be better, and the apartments themselves are really nice and modern. The Shield accommodation which is being built over the road from Union Square looks really impressive!

    Hi,

    Yes, The Shield is new and fresh - we'd love to show you around? We've got a marketing suite on Ridley Place in Newcastle City Centre.

    Although Union Square and Stepney Yard are lovely buildings too!

    Thanks

    Hi Rhe! If you're interested in a studio, I'm looking for a replacement tennant for mine at Union Square. I signed for a Stepney Studio, and i'm changing to a different uni so I need a replacement. If you're interested please let me know
