Most helpful review

After staying at the foundry, for almost 2 years after moving here from another accommodation in the area, i have to say The Foundry is by far the best one, with its reasonable price, it’s close proximity to the Northumbria university campus and its extremely helpful managers, it makes living at the foundry perfect for any student. The management are always available to help you and make things better or correct it when it has a problem. I wouldn’t recommend any other accommodation than this one.

As a Northumbria Uni student, the Foundry has been clutch when it comes to its distance from campus and shops. It’s In a serene environment with very friendly and helpful staff.

The Foundry Newcastle is the best student hall EVER! Great location, super close to city center , all those chain groceries only takes few steps to walk to. Weekly cleaning, free laundry etc etc. The managers and all the staffs in Foundry Newcastle were super super friendly and helpful! Tbf the price is affordable and reasonable comparing to the others ones. I’ve been living there for almost a year, good vibes. Would Recommend.

I have been living here for few years since I was a undergraduate student. To be honestly, I do love The Foundry and Newcastle city, as I have spent plenty of precious time during these years. The foundry is a lovely family, usually they will offer us many opportunities to explore our world, such as "welcome party", "New Years celebration" etc, I have to say they are hugely helpful to release our stress, especially after tired studying life. Most important things is The Foundry always keeps our living environment as a high standard and first priority, regularly checking the fire alarm, weekly cleaning... Anyway, I must say it is really enjoyable and grateful for living here as part of our big family, appreciating all the stuffs's efforts (Zoey and Sean). highly recommended and have a nice experience, all the best~

1. committed to providing 24-hour reception service, however, this service has been cancelled since in May; 2. committed to providing free printing/copying service, however, only be permitted to print 5 pages once. I hardly use this service as I printed in the school library before, but the university has closed temporarily, and I had a very important file which needed printing, so I asked for help and your staff refused me as my document page over 5 pages. I do not understand this rule, if maximum 5 pages can be printed at a time, how about I send 3 files (less than 5 pages) in twice or third times, will you help me print them? I am confused, will you have more reasonable and fail solutions? 3. though they did not do the wrong things, some staff's behaviours make me feel uncomfortable and impolite. No service attitudes!

A pleasurable stay for my final year! The building was well equipped with a number of facilities like the onsite gym, which made student life a lot easier. The reception and maintenance staff were really helpful whenever approached with a query- particularly Jenna from Reception who was very supportive from the start of my tenancy right until the end. The 2 guys on the maintenance team were really friendly and always helpful even for minor issues like a blocked drain.

There are many things to like about ‘The Foundry’. From its location to the staff and facilities. 'The Foundry' is quite the modern student accommodation, with very cosy rooms. It is just a walk away from the city centre, nightclubs and most universities which means no city centre chaos. The staff at 'The Foundry' are always very welcoming and helpful which I feel is quite important when looking for student accommodation. While booking, the staff at 'The Foundry' were able to allocate me with other first-year students which allowed me to make friends and therefore, settle in well - enhancing my university experience.

People at the reception has been so nice, welcoming and friendly! They are offering to help with anything!! The social space is amazing! A lot of facilities! I think that the Nintendo area should add more games like overcook!
