Our city

Newcastle is a city like no other. There really is something for everyone.

It's the cosmopolitan capital of North East England. It was voted as a top 100 student city (*QS Best Student Cities 2019).

It’s fun, friendly and effortlessly cool. It has an enviable reputation as one of the UK’s favourite and friendliest student cities.

One in six people in Newcastle is a student, helping create the city’s vibrant social scene and renowned nightlife.

Newcastle also boasts world-class sport, music, shopping, and arts. The iconic Quayside is one reason so many students affectionately refer to the city as their second home.
