Great place to stay with university and city-centre close by. Bedroom and en-suite is a comfortable size and is a great place to get to know other students and enjoy the university experience!

Lived here for 4 years. The rooms are more spacious than you can find at the same price. The team is super friendly and helpful. Location is close to Uni and the tesco and subway made life easier. Lots of events organised by the team or students so social life is fun, would recommend getting a place with friends. The place can get noisy sometimes especially on weekends. Place is clean and in the 4 years wifi never failed me, always super fast. Overall would highly recommend it it's a great accommodation.

I’ve lived here for two years and the staff are really lovely, the buildings are pretty good with decent rooms for the price you’re paying. The only problem is it’s quite far from Newcastle campus especially the medical building

I have lived in this student accommodation since September 2021 and have rebooked for my last year at Newcastle University for 22/23. The flats are en suites and I share a kitchen with my other flatmates. When booking I was able to give my preferences and they were met, such as whether being in a flat with girls or mixed and also I specified being with 2nd year students . There are entertainments held on a monthly basis, which we are invited to and a social area where we can book for gatherings. The best day is Friday when I get to see George the Portland Green Students Village dog. The staff are great and deal with situations promptly.

I’m staying here for my second year at Sunderland University and I have already booked for next year. I’ve met so many friends. There are 5 buildings in the village with students from Newcastle/Northumbria Uni. The village has its own Tesco Express and Subway. There’s a pharmacy and GP across the road and loads of bars nearby. The staff are great and have events almost every week. Walk to town takes about 10 minutes and about 5-8 minutes to the nearest Metro or you can use an e-scooter to get there. Newton Court is the newest of the buildings and has huge kitchen and lounge.

Honestly the best accommodation I have ever lived in! I have lived at Portland green for 2 years now and I wouldn’t stay anywhere else now! George (the office dog) is a great addition to a Friday daytime and makes my day when I go by reception! If I ever have any issues the reception team take note of it and they are resolved very quickly! I am looking to do a masters next year and I am hoping that I can stay in Newcastle to stay here for another year! Great location for university and getting into the city centre and events on site are fantastic especially the bingo nights which are great fun!

I have lived at Portland Green Student Village for 7 months now and I can honestly say that I would recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for student accommodation in Newcastle. Within my first month of living at Portland Green I did have a few issues with my neighbours however the reception team were fantastic and completely understanding to my situation and sorted these issues for me straight away. Now I am extremely happy and have made life long friends from around the village and am now looking forward to another year at Portland Green.

In general terms everything is ok. I only have two negative things to say about the accommodation. 1. I feel it is quite expensive, in my case I finish my classes at the beginning of May and I have had to pay two more moths for nothing (980 pounds). I am so angry about this, find it very unfair. 2. When we have had issues with flat mates it is hard or even impossible to change somewhere else (having spare rooms in every building), it is something it should change. We pay a lot of money for so little solutions.

Definitely not worth the money we pay given the quality of the accommodation in comparison to other university halls which charge the same amount. Social life is good but dependent on the people you are living with rather than the accommodation itself.

It's a good place to live where you can meet new people from a range of backgrounds doing multiple courses. All of the staff are friendly and helpful. There are regular competitions and giveaways, e.g. Pepsi max and mugs. Only downside is the walls are pretty thin so I am able to hear my flatmates and other flats talking and singing etc, which is usually fine during the day but can be quite annoying on a night when trying to sleep.

I've stayed at Portland Green Student Village since 2018 and during this time I haven't had much problems. If there's one thing that I think is great about this place it has to be the staff. The staff here are fantastic, very friendly and welcoming they really do try thier best to make you feel accommodated. I would definitely recommend this place especially if you are a young or mature student. The location is great too, it's right next to Ouseburn a short walk from the city centre and a stones through away from jesmond. Overall 8.5/10

WiFi is the biggest issue I’ve had since being here. However the value for money that you get for the rooms and amenities makes it more than worth it. The smoking areas and courtyards make it very easy to be social and get to know other people in the building.

Even though at fist, I was quite sceptical about living at Turner Court in Portland Green, I have grown to love living there. I love living here so much that I am going to live in Portland Green at Newton Court next academic year! There wasn't much social-wise due to COVID-19 but Turner Court has still been a very social place for me. I've met loads of new people.

The location is really good and close to both unis. The social experience has been difficult due to the current situations however meeting new flatmates was great. The WiFi is really fast and you can have up to 5 devices on it.

Newcastle is a long way from London and I expected it would take a decent amount of time to get used to being so far away from home. While I can't lie and say I'm completely used to it yet, settling in and living at the Portland Green Student Village has been a great experience. The staff are friendly and reply quickly to enquiries, whether you email or ask them in person, there are constantly events going on despite the current situation in England; it is clear that the staff and organisers are making sure that we're having the best experience that we can even with everything going on right now. While I will certainly miss being home in London, I am also looking forward to spending the rest of the year here in my first year of higher education.

I don’t think you’ll find much better for your money in newcastle, especially with the cashback. Big desk and bed, decent floor space, even got a dishwasher in the kitchen!! All basic necessities covered like Hoover, kettle, microwave, toaster. The staff are really friendly as well, I was feeling upset one day with isolation and Elaine just made me feel so much better. Obviously with lockdown it’s hard to judge the social spaces and social experience, but I’m enjoying myself so far. It is 10 mins walk from Northumbria uni and just under 20 to city centre. No complaints, they’re trying their best in a hard time obviously things can’t be perfect considering the circumstance

Very modern and comfortable accommodation, in a perfect location with a tesco on the corner and a park right behind the block. I had to isolate due to covid 19 and the staff were so helpful and supportive, post was delivered to our doors along with our bins been taken out when requested. Although we cannot socialise outside our flat we have been provided with other opportunities to meet new people virtually such as a zoom quiz. I would recommend anyone to book here.

Rooms are tiny, judging by how uncomfortable they are mattrasses could be well over 10 years in use. Had unsufficient hot water supply for months and didnt get fixed until the second term. Bike thefts every week without security being able to do something about it. Garbage everywhere as apparently no proper cleaning services. Laundery rooms were outsourced to Circuit and werent functioning for weeks without anyone on site doing anything about it, despite the fact that 4,50 per washing is incredibly expensive compared to other accommodations. Also laundry rooms exist only in two out of 5 builidings so had to drag all of it into a different building. A single common room with one pool & ping pong table for over a thousand students in five different buildings is simply ridiculous. Access logs for buildings flat and room doors was down for two weeks seemingly without anyone being able to fix it. Had to call reception every time I wanted to get out of my flat or get back into it.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
