If I decide to go to Newcastle I’ve been told it’s cheaper to apply for private accommodation but what may be the negatives of doing this ?

Monthly rent likely won't include bills, they will be extra.
Accommodation may be some distance from your campus and may not be as high quality as campus accommodation is.

It is definitely cheaper paying privately, the only downside is the distance to the university, it is typically between a twenty to a half an hour walk from university (to be quite far the building for the course I do is the further from the main campus).
It is definitely worth getting, private accommodation usually looks better and has a lot more space.

Hi!

This is not always the case, for example - The Shield is next door 3 of the university's own buildings! We are a 5 minute walk to Northumbria and a 10 minute walk to Newcastle.
