Private Sector Accommodation

Private Sector Accommodation

Free help and advice for all Newcastle University students


Renting in the private sector is often the preferred choice of a wide range of students including returning undergraduates, new and continuing postgraduates and students with families.

Our Private Sector Team, known as NUstudenthomes, can provide help and advice for Newcastle University students wishing to rent in the private sector.

We are located in Student Services on Level 2 of the Kings Gate building and offer a drop-in service. If we are unable to see you when you call into King’s Gate, please make an appointment to see a Private Sector Officer.

We provide information on all aspects of private rented accommodation during your time at University and offer help finding suitable private sector accommodation to meet your needs. We also offer advice on tenancy related issues such as disrepair, difficulties with your landlord or co-tenants. For those looking for accommodation on their own, we also run a Find a Flatmate scheme during term time and advertise vacant rooms and available shares.

How we can help

We can offer information on popular student areas and current rent levels you can expect in Newcastle, offer advice on paying deposits and other aspects of a private sector tenancy.

We'll also provide information on housing regulations and amenities in the private sector to ensure you are well informed.
