Demolition of the existing flats started in the summer of 2016. The new village is set to open for students in September 2018.

The project will also create associated infrastructure including a new energy centre for the village. 

As part of the redevelopment project, Newcastle University worked with charities to donate 6,500 out of the 10,000 items of furniture from the existing site.

High quality student accommodation

The new £75 million Park View Student Village will replace the existing 1970s buildings in Richardson Road with six new blocks providing almost 1,300 en-suite bedrooms for future students.

The self-catered bedrooms will be contained within 4, 6, 7 and 8-bedroom modern flats, as well as single studios. The blocks will be located on campus and within a 10 minute walk to the city, close to our Medical School, Sports Centre, as well as the residential catering in Castle Leazes Halls.

You will benefit from an on-site laundry, a central multi-use common room for games, socialising and studying, as well as university security contactable 24/7.
