Student Accommodation

  • Newcastle College does not provide any accommodation, however there is plenty of good-value accommodation to be found, particularly in the student areas of Heaton, Sandyford, Jesmond and Fenham – and of course, the city centre. The college's student advisers can help signpost students to the range of student accommodation available to them.
  • Options include self-catered student residences (non-university owned), living with other Newcastle College students; private rental accommodation; or family home stay, living with a local family.

Student Life

  • Newcastle is the regional capital of the North East, renowned as one of the best student cities in the UK. It offers great nightlife, fantastic shopping, award-winning dining, inspiring heritage, and world class culture.

Nightlife and Culture

  • Newcastle is famous for its nightlife; students are guaranteed a great night out whatever their tastes – from stylish bars, late night venues, to cosy pubs. Alternatives to the usual night out are found at Lane 7 (offering ten-pin bowling and plenty more); or head to The Stand for a comedy night.
  • Newcastle is one of the cultural hot spots of the North East. A short stroll across the award-winning Millennium Bridge is the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art.
