The Student Accommodation Code: Your right to a quality home

SAC Logo: Newcastle University is registered to the UUK Code of Practice.

Where you live is a big part of being at university, which is why Newcastle University is one of a number of universities and further education colleges that is signed up to The Student Accommodation Code.

The Code protects our students’ rights to safe, good quality accommodation and helps ensure our students get the best out of their time living in our residences. It outlines everything students can expect from our accommodation as well as their responsibilities as tenants.

The Code has already raised standards of accommodation at Newcastle University and underpins our ongoing dedication to our students. We are fully committed to providing a safe, comfortable living environment which will help support our students in experiencing a successful and enjoyable student journey here.
