The team at Knoll Court are lovely and despite the current situation, they've managed to put on activities to lift the mood weekly. The space is really worth it for the money and the added gym is an amazing bonus to the building
I stayed during my 1st and 3rd years at university. All the staff on site are great and friendly! The rooms are a nice size and with ethernet access I was able to use my computer setup without issue. Social spaces are relatively small but never too busy and always clean. Access to a table tennis table is a bonus and good fun. Only main issue would be the washing system. Circuit is an overly expensive service and due to the lack of space available in the washing machine area, there is often a wait for machines, so choose your times to do your washing carefully.
Cannot fault anything about the accommodation or staff. No problem is ever too big for the staff, they always help and repair when needed and will chat and smile all day. Accommodation is everything that I need and great value for money. Look forward to staying here again next year!
I’ve lived at Knoll Court for 2 years and I wouldn’t live anywhere else! Great staff! Great value for money! I love the events they put on and how they genuinely seem to care about every resident - plus it’s so close to Uni I can wake up 5 mins before a lecture.
I loved living at Knoll Court. I stayed at Knoll Court for my Master's year at university and it was one of the best places I've stayed at while studying in Newcastle. The location was ideal - 15 minutes from campus, both a Tesco Express and Sainsbury's local close by, and five minutes from city centre - it is an ideal place to live for a student. Other than location being perfect for the social side of being a student, the quality of the flats are also good for the money you pay, a great value for money. Compared to my first year accommodation, Knoll Court was so much more affordable considering where it is located and for an en-suite and spacious room. I was really impressed with the amount of storage, desk space and the facilities (especially the gym and study room!). The staff at reception were always so friendly and always happy for a chat whenever I passed by - they were always able to offer advice and whenever I had an issue they were able to fix it straight away.
Amazing place, people from the reception will Help you with the greatest room for 90 p/w. Moreover, the Social nights are stunning and it is great for me as a third year student to live there. The reception adviced me the Building with people just from 3rd year to feel more comfy, thats great.
Pros : Location is very good.30 - 45 mins walk to Central Train station.5 mins walk to the nearest Metro train. 10-15 mins walk to the shopping Centre / bars / restaurant, 3 mins walk to the nearest Sainsbury. Northumbria Law & Fine Arts building are 3 mins walk. The Main University of Northumbria Campus is 15-20 mins walk. NCL University is 45mins - 1hr walk. Standard Room- ensuite is big enough with 3/4 size bed, big shared kitchen, shower is good, heating is working. The flats are shared with maximum of 5 people & minimum of 3 people.Its really ideal for students at the City Centre. Cons: If you need to go to Coach Lane Campus the number 1 bus is opposite the Northumbria Uni Library & Civic Centre which is 20 mins walk ( 45 mins Bus journey to Coach Lane ). In the winter the roads are not very well lit & I felt unsafe. You can't choose your room. Staff at Knoll Court are friendly but not helpful.
Great value for money, great location, the rooms and shared areas are really nice but the only thing which lets them down are the staff think it’s perfectly legal to enter your flats without consent, enter your rooms with our consent, and also ‘confiscate’ personal items. Staff break the laws and breach the rights of their tennents on a daily basis
I have loved spending my first year of uni at knoll court. Compared to all other halls I've seen it is incredible value for money, beautiful bedrooms and ensuites and a perfect location. I have made some amazing friends here.
Fabulous Accommodation, I am now re-booking for my 3rd year. Friendly, Happy and Fun staff. Would definitely recommend. Rents are excellent value for money and lots of competitions are ran throughout the year. Rooms are a great size and really spacious kitchens. Living at Knoll Court has made my time at University much more enjoyable. Thank You!
Single bedroom, absolutely tiny. The bed itself isn't even a single, it's definitely smaller. Uncomfortable sitting room chairs, other halls have much better, much more modern kitchens than Knoll court. Washing prices are a nightmare and limited parking. Location is fab though. Electric heaters didn't last long enough on timer and barley heated up room, non existent in corridors so icy spells were horrid in winter. For £118 a week my room was so overpriced. There isn't a communal space that I was aware of and only one other room/flat on your level in the block I was in.
The location of Knoll Court is fab and the manager is lovely! I wish there were some more social events going on and it would be great to have a common room to meet new people. The rooms are a good size and having 3/4 beds next year will make them even better. I have really enjoyed my year in Knoll Court!
