The experience has been fantastic overall. The staffs are very efficient and friendly. Management is smooth and there's plenty of amazing events going on around the year. The only down side are the rooms. The can feel a little congested at times. Alao there are no reading lamps anywhere in the room, be that at the study table or over the bed.

I cannot thank PGSV for all the help with my daughter over the last 2 weeks whilst all this craziness of COVID 19 is going on. The reception staff have been so helpful with making my daughter feel safe and secure when we could not fly her home. The Staff cannot do enough for the residence. The maintenance guys are always on hand for emergencies. The events my daughter attends are amazing. They had a free burger/coffee van on site a weeks back. Plus great prizes and fun with the quizzes each month. My daughter has booked again to stay in September with a great re-booking discount. I can't thank PGSV staff enough. Thank you and stay safe

Our number one priority in this ever-changing situation has been the safety of our residents and colleagues. The site team is extremely busy looking after our residents still in situ maintaining the facilities to the highest possible standard. We have increased cleaning measures, individual welfare checks on residents whist keeping the community of PGSV our top priority.

The Abodus team is very busy behind the scenes currently reviewing the COVID-19 situation and how it impacts your lives, now and next term. We will be contacting all residents with further communications as quickly as possible.

Good general experience, but some delays with promised cash back led to many students not having the money to carry on buying food without getting into further debt. Social events and free food are good. Room and en suite in good condition along with kitchen and social spaces

Booking late in Rosedale Court is not something you want to do. I know people who have a TV and bigger fridge in bryson Court and paid less than me. Safety is probably best feature though and gym is alright. One issue I have is fridge size however freezer is more than suitable.

Really disappointed. Gym is not working. There was no warm water for a few days. Delays in cashback. Parcels just for 4 hours, when there are loong queues. The washing machines usually not working and full. Expensive as well.

The maintenance people are really nice people and are always in a good mood. The people on the desk are always smiling and helpful. Also, the 24-hour desk is quite helpful for nights out or studying late. The couple days of the broken card reader was the only problem I have had with the accommodation, everything else has been great esspically for the price with tge cash back

Pretty average accommodation although expensive for what you're getting. Especially compared to the other university accommodations. Maintenance is pretty good. Lovely guys who are happy and willing to help. There have been multiple issues with keycards not working to the point where everyone has realised that you can just force the doors open if you lush hard enough. We also didn't have hot water for a week and were not compensated for it in any way.

Love it at Portland green. I’ve stayed at Rosedale Court for the last two years and it’s so cheap!! The rooms are a nice size, loads of storage and the kitchens are a good size too. The best part about Portland green are the staff, they truly cannot do enough for you. They really make it feel like a home away from home and the amount of social events that they have including quizzes, exercise classes etc really make a difference when you’re new and even to me my second year in. Overall, I couldn’t suggest it enough, so close to uni!

The WiFi is really poor and the gym is not working at all even if they are advertising how great gym they have. Moreover the cash back was delayed which is unfair because, they just give us an extra pizza night for “sorry”. There was no warm water for few days even if we pay so much for that place. Not recommended for that value sorry. I can recommend other accommodation like knoll court, where they are not promise everything but doing just great job, giving student what they need.

I have been here for 2 years now and I have to say that I enjoy every moments I have spent here, especially the quiz nights. The staff is great and so friendly so I would recommend this accommodation to a lot of people.

In my view Portland Green Student Village offers its tenants one of the best experiences that could be found in Newcastle. The team is very friendly and willing to answer any questions at any time. I would definitely recommend PGSV to anyone!

Portland Green is a brilliant place to stay. The location is really good it is a short walk to Uni, the City Centre and shops. I have made a lot of friends while staying here. It has a great balance of activities which are put on by the site. The staff are really friendly and approachable and are always happy to go the extra mile to help. I have booked to stay again next year with £1,300 cash back.

Part 2: Nevertheless, washing machines are really dirty and I’d never wash my white clothes there. Dryers don’t dry clothes completely what is a shame for this price. It’s definitely not an eco-friendly accommodation as they don’t have any bins outside for recyclable rubbish. I was shown a bigger flat during the viewing and my room turned out to be way smaller. Last year I lived in Rosedale Court which is way cheaper than Newton Court and the reason I decided to change the accommodation was the size of the room. The receptionist changed my room for another one, but I was charged £50 for that. I think it’s disgraceful as my other flatmates got way bigger rooms for the same price.

I live in a brand new Newton Court in Shieldfield, Newcastle. The biggest advantage of living here are definitely new, modern furniture, fitness suite and a spacious living room with kitchen. The location is great - it’s just 1-minute walk to Tesco Express, 7 minutes to Northumbria Business School and the library. My flat has a SmartTV, dishwasher and the most important - 2 large fridges! All rooms have an en-suite bathroom. WiFi is really fast. Walls are super thick so even if your neighbours organise a party, you still can study or sleep peacefully. Any problems and faults are repaired immediately. Parcel collection works efficiently. The reception is open 24/7 so even if you lose your key during the night out or have any other problem, they’re always there for you. You won’t get this quality anywhere in Newcastle for this price! Students who rebook for the next year get £1300 cashback that lowers the weekly price for about £30!!! Nevertheless, washing machines are really dirty and

I have lived in Student Accommodation for 4 years now. My first year was £31 more expensive per week. Although the rooms and kitchens were just as good as Abodus, the atmosphere, social events and staff were no-where near the standard of Abodus. The internet is very reliable and they host many events every month such as fitness classes, quizzes, parties. The value for money is good, especially with the cashback offer. It is the cheapest, yet biggest and best student accommodation in Newcastle.

Located right next to a Tesco and subway which is super helpful for shopping. There’s also a Morrison’s and GP within walking distance, it’s only a short walk to the centre of town and both universities which is convenient and it’s located in a nice area close to local pubs and food spots. The accommodation itself is well managed by the on site team who always endeavour to meet needs of all residents and always create events in the social area for free to attend which is a bonus and a good way of meeting new people. The only downside is the cost - without the cashback they’ve had on in previous years it is expensive and there are other alternatives for a cheaper price.

I believe PGSV to be a place that is a good price for students with a good friendly community atmosphere. They have regular events to get people involved. They also have a great team off staff that get to know you personally. It is this level of service that has made PGSV stand out.

Living in Portland Green Student Village is a great choice if you're looking for high quality rooms and flats. Common space in Bryson Court is good for bigger meetings with a lot of social events every month including free pizza and drinks. The location is excellent - 8 minutes to the Northumbria University, 15' to the city centre and 10' to Morrison's if you need bigger shopping. As the accommodation is close to Ouseburn there is a choice of pubs you can go to on a night out with good food during the day. If there are any maintenance issues, they can be easily logged online and the problem would be resolved in no time

I live in Bryson Court and absolutely love it. I have stayed there for two years now and wish I could have spent the entirety of my 4 years at University here. The onsite staff are super friendly and will always give you time even if just for a chat. There are several social events ran every single month for the residents. There are several onsite laundry rooms, bin storage rooms and the social spaces offer free pool and ping pong (as well as specific study rooms for when that time of year comes and you can't be bothered to treck to the library). There are also a Tesco and a subway literally a two-minute walk as well as nearby bus stations and metro stations for easy commuting if need be. Honestly couldn't recommend this place enough, especially for the price it is absolutely unrivalled.

Turner Court for me was, what I would best describe as a nightmare when I first moved in. I expected my accommodation to be at least somewhat lively, however at first I believed this wasn’t to be and it was going to be a stinker of a year. Yet all changed when I moved flats. Turner is separated into two blocks, Block A and Block B. Block B from my own personal perspective is the livelier of the two, and I found this out quickly. Turner is what you make it, and it is as clear as that. Moving flats was the single best decision of my life, and what I first believed was going to be an awful year actually has turned out to be the best year of my life. I have met friends for life in this accommodation, and my future house mates. Because Turner has relatively small numbers in flats (5-9) you begin to socialise in other flats, and thats why you shouldn’t be anxious of the social aspect of Turner. Honestly, it’s vital that you don’t hibernate in your room, and make it yours and own it.

Not worth staying here. The further accommodation from the uni, with the least social crowd of people. Would not recommend. Plus they find any excuse to charfe you, over £250 in charges at the end of the year for next to nothing. Save your money.

Turner Court is very well-decorated and modern, it might be a bit further than most accommodations but a lot closer than where most will live in second and third year. Situated above a Tesco and Subway which is great, close to other accommodation such as Liberty Quay, and only a 15 minute walk away from Quayside. Socially good in freshers, but dies out a bit as most do, probably because nobody ever used the common room if they weren't waiting for their laundry. No cleaner but honestly not a big deal at all. A bit expensive, but all student accommodation is, and a lot cheaper than the similar ones offered.

Although the layout of the flats is not particularly social in my experience Turner Court is what you make it, once you mix with other flats it's easy to invite people over and make it more of a social environment. Saying that, the common room is a bit dull and so it isn't really a space where many people spend a lot of time which is a shame. The rooms are modern and have plenty of storage. The bathrooms are sometimes a bit of an issue, my shower backed sometimes and so did a few other people's that I'd spoken to, but it was nothing overly problematic. Laundry is straight forward and I never had any issues with it. Overall though Turner Court is a decent place to live and only 15 minutes away from uni.

Terrible halls. Small, badly designed, unclean, and maintenance don't do anything to help when something is wrong. Countless problems have happened in the first term due to shoddy management and I am still 4 months later waiting for maintenance to replace my missing draw in the kitchen, my broken shower and shelf, my broken lock on my door. The service is terrible for customer service, mail delivery and they are constantly trying to sell you things. Not recommended.
