Great North Run Accommodation

Great North Run Accommodation

The University is pleased to be once again, supporting the 2016 Great North Run by making available our student accommodation for both runners and spectators. Our accommodation proves extremely popular especially due to our great city centre location which is an ideal base for you to sample all that Newcastle has to offer as well as being close to the start line.

Our main accommodation block at Castle Leazes is unfortunately not available for occupation this September, but we've opened up some of our other residences to ensure that we can still offer our guests, both new and returning, a comfortable bed and a shower after the race.

We're able to offer rooms at the following residences:

  • Henderson Hall - is located on the outskirts of the city centre and only a 10 minute drive from the start line. The majority of rooms which are grouped in small clusters have a private en suite and share a communal lounge/kitchen. For the rooms that only provide a washbasin, there are shared bathroom facilities. Why not take a look at our Virtual Tour of Henderson Hall accommodation.*

  • Marris House - the location and facilities make this a very attractive option. Within a ten minute walk of the start line, each flat is shared by six guests and has a communal area, with an attractive open-plan living/dining area which includes a flat-screen TV and two showers/toilets. Why not take a look at our Virtual Tour of Marris House accommodation.*

  • St Mary's College - is located on the outskirts of the city centre and only a five minute drive from the start line. Single rooms are within shared flats with between two and six guests sharing a communal lounge/kitchen and bathroom. Why not take a look at our Virtual Tour of St Mary's College accommodation.*

  • Windsor Terrace - located in the city centre and only a 15 minute walk from the start line. Each flat is shared by six guests and has a communal area, with an attractive open-plan living/dining area which includes a flat-screen TV and two showers/toilets. Why not take a look at our Virtual Tour of Windsor Terrace accommodation.*

Please note: individual guests will be grouped in mixed gender flats/clusters.

*DISCLAIMER: The virtual tours are intended to provide a simulation of a small sample of our bedrooms and communal areas.

In addition our state of the art Sports Centre can offer a more basic "sleepover" option in the sports hall which provides dormitory style accommodation complete with air-bed and access to shower and toilet facilities.

All rooms whilst offered through the University must be booked through Nirvana Europe. Nirvana's offer will also allow the attendee to take advantage of their other services such as the Race Transfer Service and cancellation insurance.
