Camden is a great place to live not only for how close it is to the university itself but also because of the amount of space you get within your flat, both in the kitchen and the bedrooms. I'd recommend Camden to any first years looking for somewhere to live in Newcastle.

If you would like a car park this comes on a first come first serve basis & you will need to contact Camden Court team for price.

The Permit is collectable on check in day & this goes in the front of your car.

Student Review: 4 /5
By member565002 On 14th December 21

Fantastic location, only 5 minutes away from campus which make morning easy and stress free. Wonderful staff. There are problems here and there but maintenance tend to be right on it. I’ve brought a car up which meant I had to pay for parking which is very very expensive on top on rent but I suppose it’s that high to deter students from bringing a car up as there’s not many spaces. The kitchen in my flat is good as it has an island but I’m aware not every flat had this - this a good social aspect for having friends round etc. Overall a decent place to live. Madelaine price

Hi Madeline, 

Thank you very much for your lovely review :)

Glad you are enjoying you stay at Camden Court, it is very handy that the campus is only 5 minutes walk away!

Camden is one of the properties so close to Campus with a car park which is great. In the last two years we have had a refurbishment so the kitchens are nice and modern as your review mentions.

Thankyou for the review! 

Camden Court was refurbished two years ago and the flats & studios look amazing and modern! 

Location is always key & only 5 minutes walk to Campus!

The location is amazing, I can go to the business school within 1 minute. I also can go to Northumberland St easily. I would have loved if there was a social space where I can just relax with my flatmates if needed. Ayub Benlahcene, Camden Court

We appreciate your time for reviewing us! 

The location is amazing, opposite main campus & the business school. 

8 minutes to the City centre main shopping street, which very handy when first arriving for buying new items for your room! 

As there is no social space we are teaming up with Byron central for events etc. which is a 2 min walk from Camden.

The price reflects the location as its opposite campus with only a 5 min walk to the main campus and a 2 min walk to the business school.

Rooms and kitchens are spacious and modern which makes student living easier as you have a nice study space and kitchen is perfect space to cook and socialise. Building is in best location to roll out of bed for lectures and get to town in minutes.

Really like living in Camden. Staff make a real effort with students living there and made it look fab for christmas. Also have tea and coffee in reception to help yourselves. Only issue is the washing machines can sometimes be a bit dodgy.

Tea and coffee are a must for your 5 minute walk to campus!

We have just had a laundry upgrade in December so these issues are now rectified!

Great staff in reception and on maintenance. The facilities are abit dated - laundry ect. And we lack a common room in our building so events are hard to create / partake as we always require uses of another Accomodations room. They could clamp down harder on noise and cleanliness - overnight security has been taken away this year and cleaning inspections are only once a month with no incentives of what it means to pass/fail

Location was amazing (1min walk to campus). The kitchen was very modern and spacious with loads of storage and equipment. Room was ok. It has everything that you'll need it to have - bed was comfortable and 3/4 so it was spacious, bathroom was good the only problem I had with it was a little leak, but property management was quick to respond, the heater was not that great really it struggled to keep the small room warm (it was also broken when I moved in), the desk was super large which was awesome, there is no warderobe so clothes go in the desk drawers which can be annoying at times, the window was quite small so not much light was getting in the room. My room was facing the uni, but there is a big and busy motorway between the uni and the building so if the window is open is always very loud (quiet when closed). Flats/kitchens do not get cleaned by staff. Most people in the building generally don't care about uni so expect a lot of noise from around 7pm to 3-4am.

Halls was close to the main campus, however none near Coach Lane Campus so was difficult to commute, especially with unpredictable bus times.

The bathrooms flood every single time you have a shower, one of the only accomodations with a single bed, awful social experience (nothing ever happens). The location is great but thats about it. If you stayed here youd genuinly be stupid, Winn Studios and Liberty Quay are miles better and around the same price. Dont waste your time or money.

Location is more than ideal, you're literally 30 seconds away from campus (not exaggerating, it's one 50m bridge away). The rooms are pretty standard, not tiny not huge, but for the same amount of money (sometimes less) and not much further away you can get a double bed, laminate floors and even sometimes a washing machine in your flat (which will save lots throughout the year). The washing machine and dryers are pretty steep, about £3.50 and £1.70 respectively. The management team are very helpful, quick to respond. But lock out, and stuff like that...can take a while, and get things like which flat you're in wrong, leading to and even longer wait. If you go, look out for Nicola, she's always happy to help and makes a huge effort to!

Very outdated halls , interior is old and not aesthetically pleasing. The shower floods the bathroom floor and there is no extractor fan which makes maintaining a clean bathroom very difficult and causes damp/mould to form . Would recommend somewhere such as liberty quay for better value for money . Halls are also quite unsociable and there is no social space or common room.

If you want vomit at the bottom of the stairs, constant fire alarms, and flatmates who don't care about university, then Camden Court is the right place for you! Come stay at this overpriced, poorly managed accommodation, but don't bother bringing any bedding because you won't be able to sleep anyway. Enjoy having wifi? Sorry sunshine, none of that here, as the internet speed is about as fast as a dead snail. Love animals? Well, even though you can't bring your own pets, you'll enjoy seeing the rats scampering around outside the entrance. But please, come stay with us and give us £120+ per week for a room with a bathroom that floods every time you have a shower, and cry when you realise you've spent your student loan on this place, when you could have shared a house for half the price.

Modern halls with great value for money. En suite is a great plus. I've found that it's a very unsocial halls of residence compared to the likes of glenamara or winn studios. But it just depends who's living in the flats by you as other floors seem to be more social.
