Living in Newcastle upon Tyne

Newcastle has two universities: the Northumbria University and Newcastle University, and is one of the largest cities in the north of England.

Top 10 Tips for Students in Newcastle... 

1. Town Moor. If you’re into the great outdoors or just fancy a breath of fresh air and a bit of quiet, the Town Moor is unusually close to the city.
2. Cinema? Check out the Star and Shadow Cinema for a refreshing break from the usual cinema experience. As well as more unusual films they also hold art events, gigs and other performances. It’s a great volunteering opportunity as the cinema is run entirely by volunteers who shape the way the venue is used. If that’s not your thing pay a visit to Tyneside Cinema, a likeable and convenient little venue with some good social events.
3. Festival. Start saving now for the Evolution Music Festival in May.
4. Feeling creative? Visit the Make and Mend Market for some beautiful, creative goodies, or practical and inspirational workshops, craft swaps and other activities. You’ll come away with some unique, lovingly-crafted items and the shiny, satisfying feeling that you’re supporting local crafters and designers. You’ll also be doing your bit for the environment as several of the crafters use recycled materials, so bring along your unwanted items. Check their website for upcoming events.
5. Night out. The Quayside is a good area for bars and clubs if you’re planning a night out.

6. Shopping spree? Newcastle is one of the North’s best areas for shopping. For convenience, start with the high street area right near the universities and look around Eldon Square. When you want more variety or have a bit more time on your hands, head over to the MetroCentre – Europe’s biggest shopping centre.
7. Market. If you have a spare afternoon, why not make your way to the picturesque Grainger Town and browse the market there? If you’re into history or architecture it’s a must.
8.The Theatre Royal .Regularly shows many of the much-loved West End productions as well as other fantastic performances. Go along 2 hours before the show and you might even be able to blag yourself a half price “standby ticket” at the box office. Bring cash and your student ID, and have a back-up plan!
9. Beer. If you’re a fan of a real beer, don’t miss the Newcastle Beer and Cider Festival.
10. Discounts. Register with studentshoppinguk.com and regularly check their website. Every now and then they run a “Student Shopping Night” in Newcastle, with loads of chunky discounts for their members. I sense a shopping spree coming on…

Independent Study

Life Science Centre: Nothing beats running round a discovery centre pretending to be five years old, and Life is big on its interactive exhibits, including having the biggest planetarium in northern England. We’re sure you can convince your tutors that this is proper research!
The ‘Lit & Phil’: This independant library is the biggest of its kind outside of London. Whether it’s your reading list or your personal bookshelf you’re stocking up, with 150,000 books in the building chances are you’ll find the right one for you. The library also holds concerts, book launches and other events in the building, so you may end up staying even longer than you meant to.
Theatre Royal: Newcastle’s largest theatre regularly hosts touring West End shows, and regular visits from the Royal Shakespeare company. If that’s not contributing to your education, we don’t know what is.

Definitely Not Study... 

Boating: The Northumbrian University Boat race takes place every year on the Tyne between Newcastle and Durham. While you’re there, take the opportunity to check out the iconic Tyne Bridge and it’s modern counterpart, the tilting Gateshead Millenium Bridge
Town Moor: This common is bigger than Hamstead Heath and Hyde Park combined! It’s a great place to get some fresh air while still being within eyeshot of the campus. The Hoppings, Europe’s largest travelling fair, is held here every year.
Other festivals: The Evolution Music festival, held at the Quayside, takes place annually. So does the Beer Festival, where you should make sure to include a pint of the iconic Newcastle Brown Ale.

Newcastle is the ideal student city. Loads of central accomodation options, plenty of night out activities, small size and easy to get about, plenty of shops, metro public transport is straightforward unlike london, tour options to explore Northumberland, people are friendly, plenty of resteraunts and pubs, Quayside is always worth a visit.

I really like living in Newcastle as its very different from living at home in the countryside. Everything is near to you, the cost of living here is quite expensive for student accomodation but you pay for what you get, it could be cheaper. The nights are extremely good value for money, except when there are high prices to get into clubs. Eating out is good as there are so many options which are not far away from eachother. transport is good but often the metro is striking which means trains are late/infrequent which is not good.

The knot downstairs is travel ie. the metro system which regularly seems to be not working at certain points or other, even though there’s usually replacement services it’s still not ideal. The city is small and everything is in walking distance there’s plenty of places to eat and drink whether it be causal bars pubs or clubs there’s something for everyone.

Great city, probably the cheapest one in UK. Transport prices are a bit too high, but as both universities are in the city centre, you don't really need to use it. Most of the places are in a walking distance. The variety could be higher, but there are new places opening all the time, so if you'll look carefully you won't get bored of the city

Bus is confusing, but you don’t need it as everything is in walking distance. If you want to go out further, metro is also located everywhere. Uber taxi is super cheap. Most foods chain stores are In front of university. The people are very warm.

Everything is in walking distance which is good. I never go out for night activities but I can see that this city is one of the best student city for nightlife. Living cost is about 2/3of that in London according to my search.

Newcastle is known as the 15 minute city for a reason, it has everything you need within walking distance and the metro and bus services makes it quick and easy to get in and out of. The nights out are a class above the rest.
