Staff and Visitors

If you are joining us as a new member of staff, or are visiting the University for work or study, we may be able to provide you with short-term accommodation.


New staff 

If you are relocating to Newcastle to work at the University, we understand that you might need a temporary base before you’re able to find something more permanent. Our short-term accommodation options for new staff will provide you with a comfortable and convenient place to stay. Our visitor rooms offer a glimpse into the city and its surroundings, allowing you to get familiar with the area before making a more permanent arrangement. We offer temporary accommodation for a minimum of 14 nights and a maximum of 1 year.

Please note that some of the residences are located alongside our student accommodation and may be subject to more noise.


For those visiting the University for work or study, we offer temporary accommodation for a minimum of 14 nights.

“I found the staff in university accommodation to be really wonderful and so supportive. The facilities are great and Windsor Place is top class!”
