Our accommodation

All student accommodation residences are self-catered, with fully equipped kitchens and on-site laundry facilities.

Get There Scholarship 

The ‘Get There Scholarship’ is offered to all new first year Home and EU students. Worth £600, you can select either a £600 discount on accommodation fees or free 12 months’ travel across Tyne and Wear. If you’re eligible for university accommodation (including, The Forge U Student Village) you will automatically be awarded the accommodation discount but this can be traded in for a travel pass if required. Terms and conditions apply, for more information, visit our Scholarships page.

The Forge U Student Village

The University works in partnership with The Forge U Student Village, this means that the University does not own or manage the accommodation but we highly recommend it to our students. The Forge also have their own terms and conditions in relation to their tenancies and we suggest you familiarise yourself with them as they may differ from those of the University.

Apply online for University accommodation.

International students

Moving away from your home country may seem like a daunting experience, but we offer support and guidance to make the transition into student life easy both before and after you arrive. More information on this section can be found in our Help and Advice articles.
