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.

The team also operate a property management service for students wishing to rent in the private sector, with the reassurance of the University as their landlord. We advertise these properties via our property search.

We are located in Student Services on Level 2 of the Kings Gate building and offer a drop-in service during the following times:

Monday afternoon, 14.00 - 17.00
Tuesday morning, 09.00 - 12.00
Wednesday morning, 10.00 - 12.00
Thursday afternoon, 14.00 - 17.00
Friday morning, 09.00 - 12.00

You can also speak to someone outside of these times if there is a member of staff available.

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.
