We guarantee all first-year undergraduate and postgraduate taught students' accommodation through our New Student Guarantee. We will try to allocate you based on your preferences; however, this is not always possible. The New Student Guarantee is an offer of a room which may be University-owned, a managed partnership, or occasionally with a local accommodation provider.

To qualify for our New Student Guarantee, you must meet the following criteria:

  • you must be about to start your first year of an undergraduate or taught postgraduate course in Newcastle (PG research students are excluded)
  • your programme of study must be for at least one full academic year
  • you must have applied as a single student, for a full academic year’s accommodation by 31st July 
  • Newcastle University must be your firm choice by 31st July
  • if you are a postgraduate student, you must have met the terms of your academic offer by 31st July
