Applying for Accommodation

Applying for accommodation is straightforward

Before applying, it's important to research our accommodation. Use the handy filtering options to find the accommodation most suited to you. Look into different room types, considering factors like location, facilities, and cost. Make sure the accommodation is within your budget and that you know the difference between the types of accommodation. Think about whether you'd prefer a larger or smaller community, and whether you want mixed or single gender accommodation. If you need a specific room type or location due to a medical need, please see our Accessibility and Individual Requirements page for further guidance.

We offer a new student guarantee for extra peace of mind. Make sure that you are familiar with the eligibility criteria and the deadline date. Remember, we guarantee eligible students a room, not necessarily one you have chosen.

Finally, familiarise yourself with the different application routes. These differ depending on your course type, the duration of your stay, if you're coming with your family, or if you need room based on your medical needs.

To apply for accommodation, you must hold a firm offer to study with Newcastle University. There is no rush to make us your firm choice, as the room you are allocated to is not determined by when you apply.
