it depends on where you choose to live. Some are clean, some aren't. Some flat mates are clean, a lot aren't. The more you pay, doesnt necessarily mean you will have abetter experience.×
The societies aren't very good and there aren't very many of them either.Report

One particular nightclub that I like is the Empress bar, which has good music and entertainment. However, there are a wide range of places for nightlife, for example, an uncountable number of pubs (I think there are about eight or nine Wetherspoons in Newcastle city centre itself!), also lots of nightclubs. The university also hosts a lot of student nights, some which do not even include alcohol at all.×

They exceed my expectations. Everything is included in the rent: cooker, fully fitted kitchen, own washing machine and tumble dryer, dish washer, en-suite bathroom, all cleaning equipment. The halls are of decent size, there aren't too many people in one flat and there is a choice if you want to have a flat with more or less people. All amenities are close by: Tesco downstairs, access to local businesses such as butchers and markets, there are high street stores for food, clothing, decoration. There is an easy access amount of transport links to the city centre and further afield places with a very frequent and large bus station and the metro. Getting to university couldn't be easier. The place is very secure and the staff are always lovely and friendly and willing to help. However, from personal experience the bigger flats are better as there are more people to get to know, especially at Freshers week and if there are any arguments between flatmates, the atmosphere isn't as uncomfortable. Also, try and avoid the flats near entrances because of students coming in late at night or early in the morning drunk and you won't sleep. Block A is the most popular for parties and second years live at the back.×

The majority of halls at Northumbria are really nice. The ones seen as less nice are Claude Gibb and Lovaine, but they are getting renovated and they are literally on campus so are a perfect location. I lived in Camden Court which was en suite (nice!) was all over a nice place to be, not as modern as the others but still nice. I lived in Sandyford for 2nd and 3rd year which is really the closest residential place to uni. It was nice but very student based and not much there apart from takeaways and corner shops, not a problem when you're a student though! However Heaton and Jesmond are also fairly popular and Jesmond is a much nicer classier area.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
