Summer Extensions

About

It is often possible to extend your contract over the summer. Summer extensions are offered on a first come, first served basis.

Your current room may not be available due to refurbishment works, summer maintenance or conference commitments and we will aim make you an alternative offer subject to availability.  

If you have outstanding accommodation fees, you will not be allowed to extend your stay over the summer.  Make sure you've made your Term One and Term Two rent payments in full.

Undergraduates

We will be able to offer an extension in limited rooms until 23 August 2018.

Postgraduates

For postgraduate students, a small number of vacancies may be available in other postgraduate residences.

Non-Newcastle Students

If you are not currently a student living in University accommodation, you can book a stay with us over the summer.

Single Students
