First impression - my room was not cleaned from previous tenant. Bathroom light was also not working. I was offered to move to a bigger flat in a different location for higher rent, although I expected and would've preferred money compensation instead. Staff is very welcoming and always ready to help/advise. There is social space available in magnet court, although I have not seen many students using it. Unite staff do organise a lot of social events and encourage students to attend, but it has not worked in my favour yet. Laundry is on an expensive side, for a wash and dry you are looking at £5.00 Location is brilliant. Plenty of shops, gyms, bars, clubs, Newcastle university, library and Train station in walking distance. The building itself is quiet. Wifi runs through an external provider called Glide, which hasn’t been great for the past two weeks but I am working with Glide team to fix it. Overall, I would recommend choosing Magnet for location, excellent service and safety.

It has been a great experience overall living at magnet court. It is very close by to the University and the staff at magnet court are very kind and helpful. You get to live with a wide range of people from a wide variety of different countries so you get to know and make a diverse group of friends. So overall I would suggest a student wanting to live nearby to Newcastle University to live in Magnet Court.

I have written a Google review too long to fit here, under the name Jamie Whiten. Overall not great value for money and a fair few flaws, but I have enjoyed my time here. Worst thing by far is Circuit Laundry, and would consider looking elsewhere just because of this.

Student Review: 4 /5
By AJCavendish On 28th September 16

Got a studio here during my last year as a result of its amazing location, centrally located opposite Newcastle's biggest shopping centre (Eldon Square). Unlike the previous reviewer, since I'm based in a studio, I'm not subject to fortnightly cleaning of communal areas, whereas my wi-fi has always been perfect once getting past the initial set-up (their StudentCom internet is a bit weird - you have to log-in within the browser, which led to some teething problems for me at first). They also have an ethernet connection available - faster than my internet speed at home (although that probably says more about how bad my home internet is). Hall management and social experience is where this flat really shines - the staff are incredibly friendly, chatty, and have the uncanny (slightly creepy) ability of remembering everyone's names. If you have a problem, you speak to the staff at reception - or use their online maintenance app - and you'll always get pointed in the right direction.
