Accessibility and Individual Requirements

The information on this page is for students applying for accommodation for 2024/25. If you are currently living with us and have a question about your room, please refer to the Accommodation Guide 24/25.

Our student accommodation caters to the diverse needs of our students. If you have additional requirements related to a disability or health need, we have specially adapted rooms available. We recognise that your accommodation needs to be both comfortable and practical, which is why our accessible rooms are designed to make your time at University feel like home. 

Whether you're in a bedroom or a studio, there are plenty of opportunities for socialising. We'll allocate you accommodation on floors with other studios or in a shared flat. Our current adaptations include:

  • wheelchair accessible accommodation
  • adjustable beds and study desks
  • braille kitchen equipment
  • mini refrigerators to store medication
  • vibrating pillows

However, if you need something else, we're able to make reasonable adjustments to make your stay with us as comfortable as possible. We'd recommend that you also get in touch with our Disability Support team for further advice and guidance whilst in Newcastle.
