Great place for students to stay, there are always activities for everyone to get to know each other. The facility is clean and the common room is so homely and comfortable to spend time in. The accommodation is very close to Northumbria city campus and also 1 min walk away from the number 1 bus to coachlane campus. I’ve been here for 2 years and had a good experience especially with the lovely staff that are always there to help. The kitchen has everything ready including the washing machine which is hard to find in other accommodation with this price.

Q
hello, i am an international student who is coming to live Barker House in the coming September. Owing to the Covid-19 issue, is it possible for me to conduct self-isolation in this accommodation, even before my live in date ?

Q
Hi, is there on a dryer on site? Are utilities included in rent? It is not clear if the en suite room includes a shower or bath, can you clarify that for me?

Hi, yes all utilities are included in the rent and there is a washing machine and dryer in each flat so you don't have to pay extra for them. Each room is an ensuite which stands for room with shower and toilet facilities 

Q

Barker House is an ideal accommodation for students new to Newcastle due to its friendly atmosphere and close location to both Universities. The staff are cheerful and help with any queries you may have. I have felt safe here throughout the covid-19 pandemic. Even though social events could not happen in person, there have been plenty of opportunities to take part in virtual quizzes. The flats have spacious kitchen/communal area with enough storage space. Nearby is a Tesco Express and Morrisons is a 15 minute walk away. Also near the accommodation are parks and the quayside.

Barker House is a great option for accommodation. It is a 10-minute walk to Newcastle University and it is really close to the Quayside which is great when you want a break from studying! The communal flat area is spacious and there is plenty of cupboard space. The staff are always really friendly and helpful. Due to covid we booked the common room out as a flat and the manager put refreshments out for us to enjoy! Barker House is a great place to stay whilst studying for both undergraduates and postgraduates.

Thank you so much for your review! I like to make the building as nice a place to stay in as possible and hearing feedback is always great. Its a shame we have not been able to use the common area and others more often this year but hopefully before the end of the year we will be able to :) If you need anything please visit myself at reception. Many thanks,

Scott

Its my second year staying here and I have never looked back. It is ridiculously near to Northumbria Uni (3 mins walk). There is a tesco and subway that is just a stones throw away. What else could a student want? An ever friendly accommodation manager as well. The kitchen is amazing and every flat gets their own washer and dryer, so thats a chore less. Perfect place to stay in my opinion. Rent is reasonable too. Youre losing out if youre not staying here.

It’s a great place to stay , city centre is jus few miles away , can talk a walk and the university is quiet near which is really comfortable and got all the facilities in this stay , don’t have to go for laundry outside and good range of price and it’s really worth it

I moved from another accomodation here last September and it has been an extremely homely feeling. The rooms are spacious and so is the kitchen.. Everyone who manages the place is extremely friendly and always helping you with whatever you need. Being an international student you want to go back to a place that feels like home and is cosy, and this place ticked off every requirement in my list!

Wonderful place. Worthy for the price you pay nearby to all necessities and universities. Good location. Very helpful management line. Would definitely continue my stay here in future. Highly recommend as I’ve surveyed many places in Newcastle and visited other accommodation I personally feel this is one of the best.

This accommodation is an excellent value for money and conveniently placed. The big bonus to this building is the relationships you make, and there are so many events on to help you find new friendships feel welcome and interact with others to make your stay as comfortable as possible including FIFA nights, films nights and quiz nights. I would also like to shout out Scott, the manager of the building who made my stay even better and is a great guy, it's rare to find someone who interacts so well with students, his door is always open for a chat, and he makes sure everyone is doing okay daily, I would also like to shout out the maintenance guy and the cleaner, who both have great personalities that add even more character to this accomdation.. excellent management and excellent accommodation overall.
