‌Key points and facilities

Portland Green Student Village is one of our Managed Partnership sites, owned by Abodus Student Living. 

This vibrant student village offers en-suite rooms in 4 to 7-bedroom flats across three student buildings - Turner Court, Bryson Court and Rosedale Court. Each flat has an open-plan lounge/kitchen; all rooms have small double beds, underbed storage and desk. You'll benefit from an onsite gym, large common room and a supermarket right on your doorstep.

Accommodation is spread over eight floors with lifts, and our friendly reception staff and 24/7 security team keep a watchful eye on the buildings for your own personal safety.

The accommodation buildings form part of a larger community at Portland Green, with other bulidings within the site not forming part of the Newcastle University portfolio. This allows for an even greater opportunity to meet other students.

Our facilities include:
  • Onsite laundrette
  • WiFi in all flats
  • Onsite gym
  • Large common room
  • Private courtyards 
  • Bike storage
  • Games room
  • CCTV/entryphone


Just 12 minutes’ walk to the city centre and 19 minutes’ walk to the main campus, Portland Green is within easy reach of city life but offers a bustling student environment in a cool, growing suburb that’s packed with quirky pubs, along with artists’ studios and visitor attractions. The area's energy and charm make it an exciting place to live, work or play.
