New Student Guarantee

Please note the information outlined below is subject to change due to the Covid-19 situation. We will provide updates as soon as they are available.

Undergraduate

As an undergraduate student, you are guaranteed a place in university-owned or managed partnership accommodation for your first year of study, provided you meet certain criteria.

We'll take into account the type of accommodation you prefer, but in order to house all students under this scheme, we can't guarantee that your accommodation choices will be met.

Some types of rooms and accommodation prove more popular than others; if we're unable to offer you one of your choices, we will try to allocate the best accommodation available to meet your requirements.

Postgraduate

As a postgraduate student, you are guaranteed a place in university-owned or managed partnership accommodation for your first year of study, provided you meet certain criteria.

We'll take into account the type of accommodation you prefer, but in order to house all students under this scheme, we can't guarantee that your accommodation choices will be met.

Some types of rooms and accommodation prove more popular than others; if we're unable to offer you one of your choices, we will try to allocate the best accommodation available to meet your requirements.

 

Exclusions

Not all applicants are covered our New Student Guarantee.

There are some applicants that we can't cover under our guarantee, but where possible we will try to offer you accommodation and contact you by 2 September.

If we're unable to do so, we will offer advice on finding alternative accommodation. As a city, Newcastle is fortunate to have a large supply of alternative accommodation options in the private sector, so if we can't help you, you won't have any problems in finding suitable accommodation.
