    Hi, im an international coming for the Newcastle foundation program in september ^^ Now i have a dilemma of which accommodation to choose.. Can you people help me out ? It is either Henderson hall or Leazes parade

    Hopefully there is:
    Good internet speed in the room (im taking single room in either of that)
    Big room space
    shorter distance to the university
    food nearby =DD

    **My main priority is to be able to use the internet in my room with a given good speed as i read that there is bad internet connections in Henderson hall?**

    which one will you choose? please guide me into that ^^

    Henderson Hall is miles away from anywhere worth going....

    To the best of my knowledge all ncl halls have pretty good internet, but I think Leazes Parade is only for postgrads...?

    The vast majority of Leazes Parade was put over to the INTO program a year or so back.
