Newcastle excels when it comes to culture. Its thriving alternative scene fills it with independent venues, traders and unusual happenings, creating an irresistibly eclectic vibe.

The arched bridges that leap over the Tyne give the waterfront a cinematic feel. There’s always loads of activity on the Quayside, including the Market on Sundays and a huge range of places to eat. The BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art is there, and the immense Sage Gateshead concert hall.

You’ll find everything in Newcastle, from microbreweries to cultural spaces in repurposed office blocks, plus a dedicated Creative Quarter. There is fantastic nightlife if you’re looking for it too.

Both of our student accommodation buildings are a short walk from Newcastle University and Northumbria University. Collingwood features a cinema room, gym and a top-floor terrace with impressive views, while Stephenson House offers fresh rooms and social spaces close to local amenities in the creative Ouseburn district.
