Catered and self-catered

We offer both self-catered and catered rooms at Newcastle University. All our residences offer self-catered accommodation only, with the exception of Castle Leazes, where we also offer catered accommodation in a portion of washbasin rooms.

Breakfast and evening meals are provided Monday-Friday during term time, and are included in the rent. These rooms typically have a smaller kitchenette-style kitchens, equipped with basic cooking facilities such as; a microwave, kettle, and mini-fridge. Self-catered rooms benefit from a larger kitchen facility.

Students living in Castle Leazes also have the option to opt-in to a Residential Catering Package.

This package provides students who are allocated a self-catered room in Castle Leazes with the option to benefit from the same breakfast and evening meal offer as catered students (Monday-Friday, during term time only), by purchasing a termly or annual Residential Catering Package.
