Student Accommodation

  • Northumbria University's accommodation is close to campus and has been ranked 2nd best in national student housing awards (2016). A range of accommodation options are available for postgraduate students from en-suite top-of-the-range residences to traditional student housing.
  • The online accommodation application system lets students select their exact residence, flat and room, so students can choose to share with other postgraduate students. The university also offer tenancies that suit postgraduate course patterns – such as single semesters – to give greater flexibility.
